Meet the Mini Chocolatiers!

Six local children have discovered just what it takes to become a mini expert in chocolate after winning a chocolate-making session with award-winning chocolatier Aneesh Popat.

Local charity Creating Memories teamed up with The Chocolatier, who is based in Sandy, Bedfordshire, to invite children with special educational needs, disabilities or life-limiting illnesses aged eight and over to design their very own chocolate creation, with the six winning designs being sold as part of a special box earlier this year.

Creating Memories Founder Pritti Saggi approached The Chocolatier to collaborate on the special project for children last year as a way to bring joy, spark creativity and support local business.

The winners got to come to the factory, meet Aneesh and make their own chocolate.

During the session, the children got to taste a variety of different chocolate flavours and toppings while learning about the chocolate making process, before rolling up their sleeves (literally!) and getting stuck in creating chocolate bars, lollipops, and cocoa-dusted truffles!

Aneesh said, “It was fantastic to meet these amazing children, who had all been so imaginative with their chocolate designs! I loved helping them to make some wonderful chocolate treats to enjoy, allowing them to get covered in chocolate and have some fun with the different flavours and combinations. Each child left the session with their creations, and memories that I hope will last for a long time. I know that I will truly treasure this experience.”
