Create a Chocolate


Create A Chocolate Masterpiece Competition


WIN a 6-month subscription to our Tasting Club – and the chance to have your idea brought to life!



What its about...


You look like the kind of person who has good ideas. Whether it’s a chocolate, cocktail, hot drink or restaurant dish, if you’ve got an idea that involves cocoa, you could be in with a chance of winning a 6-month Tasting Club subscription – or six months free if you’re already a member – and having your creation brought to life!

Eton Mess, Mint Royale and Cara-sel: some of our most popular chocolates were dreamt up by our Tasting Club members as part of our Create-a-Chocolate competition. Now, Create a Chocolate Masterpiece invites Hotel Chocolat guests to try their hand too. Send us your drawing and an unforgettable name and it could go on to become the next award-winner or customer favourite!

Entries can be submitted all year round, with a winner chosen every three months. Your chocolate could feature in forthcoming Tasting Club boxes, which will be scored by our members!

The Tasting Club is a monthly subscription, and 100,000 of our members come home to an exciting new box of chocolates. Every tasting box comes with a scorecard. By scoring chocolates they influence the development of new recipes, with the highest rated starring in Hotel Chocolat products.
