Paul A Young Fine Chocolates Transforms Christmas Past Into Christmas Present This December

This Christmas, Paul A Young has created a festive seasonal collection that touches on the sweet treats of old. However, as fans of the UK’s favourite Master Chocolatier will know, Paul is anything but traditional! He has, of course, added a sprinkle of his own Christmas magic to chocolate recipes old and new this December….

New items in the collection include an amazing collection of chocolates and truffles, a luxurious Christmas Chocolate Tiffin and a showstopping handcrafted Chocolate Bauble centrepiece, which has been decorated by Paul’s chocolatier elves with a traditional winter wonderland scene and filled with chocolate buttons.

The collection also sees the return of the incredibly popular, sell-out Candied Clementines, which come half dipped in 65% Guittard Madagascan chocolate.

The Christmas 2017 chocolate and truffle collection ranges from spins on comforting classics, to the truly boozy.

Fans of an alcoholic chocolate or two will love his Four Pillars Gin Punch, the Glen Moray Whiskey Cream Caramel and Billington’s Burnt Sugar Eggnog, which is made using El Dorado Rum. However, the Crown Jewel in Paul’s Chocolate Box this year is the mysterious “The Cock Tail Chocolate”, made with Guittard 65% Colombian, Remy Martin Champagne Cognac, sugar syrup, bitters & nutmeg.

The filled chocolates collection is available as individual chocolates and up to 36-piece boxes. The 2017 Christmas collection also includes the following flavours:

  • Nesselrode  (Sweet Chestnut, Lemon, Mixed Peel and Vanilla)
  • Stem Ginger Truffle
  • Mendient
  • Stollen
  • A special Christmas Caramel
  • California Prune and Nut 

Chocolate Showstoppers

In addition to Paul’s Chocolate Buttons Bauble, you can tantalise your guests with a little Christmas nostalgia and serve Paul’s Glen Moray Christmas Pudding Domes for dessert. Made from 38% milk chocolate and filled to the brim with Glen Moray whisky cream caramel, each dome is finished with a final flourish of white chocolate.

Reindeer Bars:

Paul’s stunning dark and milk chocolate Reindeer Bars will be flavoured with orange and mandarin essential oils for an elegant festive touch that is a twist on everyone’s Christmas favourite, the Chocolate Orange. With a delicate red nose decoration and shimmered in silver and gold, the bars are a striking addition to any Christmas stocking.

Baked Collection:

Christmas Chocolate Tiffin - The most luxurious Tiffin in the land! An incredibly luscious mix of Guittard 72% dark chocolate, sweet spices, cherries, raisins, tiffin essential Digestive biscuits, as well as stem ginger and California prunes, this Christmas Chocolate Tiffin is the upmost in Christmas indulgence.

Brownie Mince Pies - Paul’s classic Brownie Mince Pies are back and better than ever this Christmas. Expect Paul’s award-winning fudgy brownie and buttery rich sweet pastry, filled with homemade mincemeat and topped with a chocolate decoration.

  • Little chocolate fans are thought of too as they’ll have dark and milk chocolate Robot Lollies to choose from!  

Sensational Chocolate

Paul’s latest book Sensational Chocolate, created in collaboration with the Children’s Air Ambulance, assembles a glittering array of Paul’s friends and colleagues who have each contributed to this collection of glorious recipes.

Contributors include Marco Pierre White, Emma Thompson, Marcus Wareing, Ollie Dabbous, Brian Blessed, Giorgio Locatelli, Nigella and many more creating over 60 culinary gems. The recipes cover the entire gamut from baking cakes and biscuits to puddings, ice creams, desserts, drinks and savoury chocolate and unsurprisingly the book recently won 3rd place in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

Advent Calendar

Create your very own winter wonderland this festive season with Paul’s limited edition Advent Calendar. Arrange the 24 gorgeous individual wooden houses, each of which is filled with a foiled solid chocolate for the ultimate countdown!

Whether you choose to make your very own White Christmas, Deck the Halls with the little houses or bring a little Joy To someone else's World this Christmas, the advent calendar is sure to bring a little festive magic to your home.  The houses are designed to be reused again and again, so make this year the first year of your brand new Christmas tradition. Paul's top tip is to crumble white chocolate around the little houses to create an authentic snow scene.
