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.
