Homemade Festive Gifts with Guittard Chocolate

The best Christmas gifts are the personal ones – the ones that spread cheer by showing how much you care. So, whether you’re looking to make a classic Yule Log, Knock-Out Chocolate Bombe or a gift-able Chocolate Treat, make it world-class this year, make it with ethically and sustainably sourced Guittard chocolate.

Easily purchased in a variety of different forms, Guittard is available from Lakeland, Whole Foods, M&S and Ocado, so there’s no excuse to turn up empty-handed throughout the festivities! Highly recommended is the superbly simple yet utterly decadent Dark Chocolate Almond Ginger Bark, featured in the Guittard Chocolate Cookbook (Chronicle Books).

Guittard has been expertly crafting their products using traditional French methods in San Francisco since 1868. If nearly 150 years of chocolate making isn’t guarantee enough of its quality, you need only look to some of the UK’s top culinary talent for assurance. Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber said: “I was first introduced to Guittard at its home in San Francisco and was won over very quickly, the range is perfect for the home baker and the quality is excellent. I was excited to see them launch here in the U.K. as it really enables home bakers to up their chocolate game at a really affordable price.”

Not only is it high in quality, Guittard is a chocolate brand with ethics, meaning you can give guilt-free this Christmas. The company is committed to honourable sourcing, crafting the highest quality chocolate, providing the best service and setting new standards for the industry, an approach that is illustrated by their mission to Cultivate Better™. With a passion for promoting the sustainability of the cocoa growing regions and the wellbeing of cocoa workers, Guittard Chocolate Company is giving new meaning to the virtues of chocolate.
