Welcome To Chocolate Plus

Hugs and Hearts Raspberry and Strawberry Truffles.

Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! Everybody loves chocolate! Well, maybe not everybody, but the majority of people do and those who don’t should. Anyway, this is a site all about chocolate: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. It’s a blog of sorts. A, ‘this is what I do so that you can do it too’, site. What do I mean by that? Well, I’ll show you step by step on how you can make delicious chocolate treats and candies for yourself, either to eat, sell or to give away to family and friends. It’ll be fun, easy to do, and you’ll learn something along the way.

Before I continue, let me quickly introduce myself. My name is Mark Brown, aka: the Great British Chocolatier, and I have been working with chocolate off and on for about ten (10) years in my home, and my wife, children and grandchildren have been the taste-testers. What started as a hobby is now turning into a small business. Now I’m releasing my chocolate to the world. Ok, not really the world, but to those in my local area under a Cottage Food License (but more on that later). Btw: I didn’t go to culinary school. I learned what I know through ‘youtube-a-versity’ and simple trial ‘n error. Hence, you can do this. You really can!

As you can see, this site is still under construction, as there isn’t a lot of information here, but that will change as I learn the ropes of building this website. In the meantime, however, you can check out my store here: https://choosechocolateplus.square.site.

More chocolate coming soon….




(pronounced: sh-oca-lat-ul)

I chose this spelling because it looked different and classy, with a touch of sophistication. I also wanted to pay respect to the Aztecs, who ‘invented’ chocolate in the first place, introducing it to the world. Of-course they drank in its bitter form and even added spices to it. All I can say is thank goodness for sugar! Making it the best and most loved confectionary in the known world.

A little history…
The English word “chocolate” entered our language between 1595 and 1605. It came from the Aztec word “xocolatl” – “xococ,” meaning “sour, bitter,” and “atl,” meaning “water.”
