A British chocolatier has created lifelike chocolate scones that ooze jam, cucumber sandwiches and biscuits for National Afternoon Tea Week.
To celebrate National Afternoon Tea Week (13th-19th August), Choc on Choc is launching the UK’s first deliciously decadent ‘choc swap’ afternoon tea made entirely of chocolate at the London Marriott Park Lane Hotel in its Lanes of London restaurant.
Guests will be able to indulge in all of their favourite traditional afternoon elements, but some of these have been swapped out for their lifelike chocolate counterparts.
Priced at £39.50 per person, the bespoke afternoon tea features a selection of Lanes of London’s delicious finger sandwiches, scones and pastries alongside Choc on Choc’s chocolate cucumber sandwiches, chocolate biscuits and chocolate custard creams that look just like the real thing. A real showstopper is the chocolate scone, which oozes jam when you slice through the middle.
Each part of the chocolate afternoon tea is handmade from the finest Belgian milk and white chocolate. It is created using Choc on Choc’s patented production method that layers chocolate on top of chocolate and allows its master chocolatiers to produce any design imaginable.
This exclusive afternoon tea is available between midday to 5pm at the London Marriott Park Lane Hotel’s Lanes of London restaurant, an all-day casual dining destination serving fresh British ingredients in a modern and relaxed setting, situated on London’s prestigious Park Lane, Lanes.
For those that can’t make it down to the London Marriott Park Lane Hotel, chocolate lovers can buy the chocolate afternoon tea from choconchoc.co.uk for £30.
Flo Broughton, co-founder of Choc on Choc says: “As an independent British brand, we love all things afternoon tea so wanted a fitting way to celebrate National Afternoon Tea Week.
We’re hoping Brits will indulge and marvel at our chocolate sandwich, scone and biscuit creations that look just like the real thing! The Marriott Hotel, who are known for their delicious afternoon teas, are a perfect partner for us to provide a truly bespoke offering for chocolate-lovers to enjoy.”
