Joanne Whiteley’s handmade chocolates have a focus on special occasions: favours, present packs, chocolate tea-cups filled with moulded shapes, bespoke hampers and ready-made party bags, all of which can be packed together with flowers. The Chocolat Blanc shop opened in Hamilton in May 2016, and an online shop is in the planning. Chocolate parties are particularly popular with children; they’re run from the workshop when it’s not turning out boxes of pralines, caramels and truffles, decorated bars and cake pops. Joanne can regularly be found at local events: check the Facebook page for details and dates.
After training with Ruth Hinks of Cocoa Blacks in Peebles, Joanne Whiteley opened Chocolat Blanc in Hamilton in 2016, where her handmade chocolates have a focus on special occasions: favours, present packs, chocolate tea-cups filled with moulded shapes, bespoke hampers and ready-made party bags, all of which can be packed together with flowers. Wedding favours & displays and corporate orders are the bulk of the business (both Glasgow City Council and the Gleneagles Hotel are happy clients) but her workshop is open during the week for walk-in trade, and outside of those hours, she's more than happy to arrange pickups for customers great and small.
Chocolat blanc make luxury handmade chocolates for the discerning chocolate lover. Their premises in Cadzow Street incorporates a coffee and hot chocolate bar where customers can admire the decadent surroundings whilst enjoying a hot drink and artisan baked cake or selection of handmade chocolates.
