Chococo

When we visited our family for the Christmas holidays we went on a chocolate adventure to Chococo, which is a chocolate shop and café. We had such a wonderful time that I created this page to remember it by.

I covered the background with a striped piece of Kaisercraft paper; the bold colours reminded me of the Chococo logo and store. I edged the page with a thin brown washi tape and then cut up a leaflet that I’d picked up there; this included the Chococo logo, gingerbread caramel chocolate and two chocolate lollies with birds on them. They are arranged on the page with some die cut brown hearts, a circular hot chocolate image and some wording which reads “cozy” and “even when it’s cold outside our memories keep us warm”. The wording “sweet” is from Kaisercraft and “an armful of candy boxes” is from Tim Holtz, both of which are stickers. To finish the page, I added three wooden glittery snowflakes as we visited in winter.

Chococo is located in Horsham, West Sussex and celebrates all things chocolate.

They have a chocolate counter with lots of yummy treats and …

… also a café specialising in hot chocolate.

I couldn’t resist having one of their Gingerbread Caramel Hot Chocolates with all the works (whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate shavings), it was so delicious and was accompanied by one of their award winning gingerbread caramel chocolates – yum yum!

As T Stands for Tuesday, I’m sharing my drink related post with the T Gang and wishing you all a very Happy T Day!

Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

  4. My sincere apologies. As your host, I knew I had to show up for T, but it took everything I had to climb out of bed. I am running a fever of 101.8 F (38.8 C). I appreciate you sharing your drink with us this T Tuesday. I also love the journal page you created and all those chocolates would look SO good if I wasn’t so sick. Maybe I need cocoa instead of coffee!

  5. Chococo reminds of our local Chocalac store except they only make and sell the amazing artisan chocolates. I heard they recently doubled the store size, so we shall see …

    Your colorful journal page really reflects the store/cafe well.

    Your hot chocolate looks like something out of Willy Wonka. I don’t think I could have passed that up either.

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  6. Wow, what a great place to visit! I think I’d go for milk chocolate cocoa with the works! And I like that you made an art piece to remember your trip with. It looks great and those sparkly snowflakes are perfect on it. (Sometimes when I go on a day trip or weekend trip, I make a postcard art piece for the place where I’m going, then mail it to myself from the local post office, as my “souvenir.” Happy T-Day!

  7. Oh chocolate! My mouth is watering as I am on a detox and can’t have it at the mo. Your page is wonderfully colourful.
    What a great shop! (By now I am drooling)
    Sorry for the late comment. We have been helping friends move house (They are now living within walking distance)
    Belated happy T-Day,
    Hugs,

    Chococo sounds like an awesome place! I can only have dark chocolate but I’m sure they have some, lol. Love your striped background and how you used their brochure. Great way to document your memory and experience, xox
