Here’s a taste of what to expect at Wicked. You’ll notice that we only stock the very best – and they may seem a little extravagant – but we’d rather offer you a taste of pure perfection rather than a glut of mediocrity.
BESPOKE SELECTION BOXES
Here at Wicked Chocolate, in the historic Covered Market in the heart of
Oxford, we offer a unique service in that clients can choose from an
exquisite range of over 40 handmade English and Belgium chocolates. These
have been very carefully selected by ourselves for their taste, quality and
texture. You can handpick from a total of 8 chocolatiers to create your own
bespoke selection for that special occasion or for a bit of self-indulgence.
Prestat is one of London’s oldest chocolate shops with Royal Warrants from both the Queen and the late Queen Mother. Beautifully made and presented, these are a gift of distinction – a royal treat.
CHARBONNEL ET WALKER
Founded in 1875, Charbonnel et Walker is one of Britain’s first chocolatiers & they are also Royal Warrant holders to the Queen. Their hand-made truffles and chocolates are still made to Mme Charbonnel’s original recipes and presentation is artfully elegant.
This (relatively) new chocolatier’s single origin, English made, chocolate collection is all about quality, taste, purity and indulgence. The flavours are contemporary, innovative, sometimes unusual and earning the respect of serious foodies.
We fell in love with Cafe TASSE on our first visit to Brussels, the exquisite shops and a style with which we immediately felt empathy. “Cafe TASSE is the reflection of an art of living, the gourmet’s luxury, the chocolate for the connoisseurs. Cafe TASSE crosses borders and times with elegance. Cafe TASSE is destined to the amateur curious to discover new horizons through our chocolates”.

Farrah’s was established in 1840 and their Original Harrogate Toffee was designed to cleanse the palates of patients who had been “taking the waters” in Harrogate. The toffee is still made in copper pans and packaged in the same blue and silver embossed tins as it has been for generations.
WILLIES CHOCOLATE is all about one man’s quest to create some of the finest chocolate in the UK. Willie Harcourt-Cooze’s passion for chocolate was born of a love of adventure;
“That spirit took me to Venezuela, led me to buy Hacienda El Tesoro high in the cloud forest, and remains with me as my quest to make great chocolate takes me on the cacao trail around the Equator into the forests of the world, in search of the finest beans.
My chocolate is all about flavour. Great cacaos are like fine wines, each one with its own stunningly individual flavour born of its specific genetics, soil and climate. One might taste naturally of nuts, another of summer fruits. It is to capture these subtle notes and unique flavours that I make all my chocolate from the bean- which is called bean to bar chocolate! I buy single estate cacaos direct from the farmers, roast them in antique ball roasters and make them into chocolate using just raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter – no soya lecithin, no vanilla, nothing that gets in the way of the flavour of the bean”.
Since it was founded in 1922 in Tain L’Hermitage, France, Valrhona has remained a chef driven company that values working in partnership with chefs. It employs 25 corporate chefs and also operates four premier baking schools under the name of L’École du Grand Chocolat. Chocolate gurus.

At Dolfin, chocolate is a passion.
“The art of blending”
For decades, Dolfin’s philosophy has been to mix natural, high quality ingredients directly into the chocolate mass. Fruits, spices, herbs, flowers or even the great classics are combined in perfect and subtle blends with the best traditional chocolates.
Innovation lies at the heart of the Dolfin spirit,
which is why some of our recipes are true gourmet inventions. Our master chocolatiers seek out the finest ingredients selected from the best that Nature has to offer. They create surprising blends to produceflavours that are exquisite and full, yet devoid of sugar and fat.
