It’s tempting to call Cocoa Amore one of Leicester’s hidden gems, but its number 1 Tripadvisor rating as the city’s best shopping experience suggests different. It says a lot about the charm of the chocolatier that upon stepping inside even the most regular visitor is made to feel like a kid in a chocolate factory.
This truly is a chocolate heaven. Entering the store is a wonder for the senses – the rich smell hangs in the air, so thick you can almost taste it. The busy chocolatiers work away, preparing the hand-made chocolates that are piled on the shelves around you in this small but wondrous store.
The team at Cocoa Amore are united by a passion for chocolate. Using the finest ingredients from a single origin harvest, their mission is to spread their love and chocolate and the benefits of the humble cocoa bean to all.
For those who can’t resist immediate temptation, sit down and enjoy your choice from a small menu of hot chocolate flavours for a sample of the delights on sale.
On the upper floor you can take one of Cocoa Amore’s popular chocolate workshops – two-hour personalised sessions that take you on a journey through the history of Cocoa and the secrets of the chocolatier, finishing with your own hand-made creations to take home.
