Happy International Chocolate Day

Chocoholics rejoice! International Chocolate Day is here. On 13 September, we’ll be celebrating all things cocoa at the Square with a selection of our favourite luxury sweet treats.

September is here and with it comes the nippy autumnal air, so why not warm up with a delicious hot chocolate at Poco Café? Whether you opt for an original flavour or one infused with mint, the Italian cocoa is bound to warm you up and leave you feeling scrumptiously satisfied.

For an extra naughty treat, indulge with Gallery Mess’ triple chocolate cheesecake, ideal for Chelsea’s chocoholics. The perfect accompaniment to a delicious lunch or hearty dinner, this dessert is truly death by chocolate!

If you fancy something you can enjoy at home instead, head to Partridges where the selection of confectionary will leave you spoilt for choice. From scrummy Belgian chocolates to everything you need to concoct a delicious fudge cake, you certainly won’t be disappointed. One of our personal favourites is Valrhona’s Abinao 85% Cacao bar, produced by French artisan chocolatiers and made with rare cocoa beans for a richly satisfying treat.
