St. Enoch Centre is celebrating National Chocolate Week by challenging sweet-toothed shoppers to create Glasgow’s best hot chocolate drink in a competition with prizes worth hundreds of pounds.
The Glasgow shopping destination wants shoppers to share their hot chocolate tips along with photos of their delicious hot chocolate drinks on Twitter using the hashtag #HotChocHotties.
To get shoppers started, St. Enoch Centre has created a short film that demonstrates its own recipe for the ultimate hot chocolate. Made with decadent real dark chocolate, rich hazelnut syrup, mini marshmallows and a sumptuous swirl of cream it’s a treat that is hard to beat.
The film, which can be viewed on St. Enoch Centre's social media channels, features Chris Kimble, manager of Kimbles Deli and Chocolate Shop, which is based in St. Enoch Centre.
St. Enoch Centre is home to a range of chocolatiers including Kimbles, Thorntons and Glasgow’s only branch of Hotel Chocolat. The stores will be staging a wide range of free events during Chocolate Week, including tasting sessions, chocolate decorating, cookie decorating and chocolate workshops.
Anne Ledgerwood, general manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: "We want to find the best hot chocolate in Glasgow, so if you think you’ve got the ultimate recipe we want to see what you can do.
"St. Enoch Centre offers a wide range of chocolate treats, from buttons for the kids to exclusive single estate chocolate that is as prized as fine wine.
"I’d urge shoppers to get involved in Chocolate Week at St. Enoch Centre, and enjoy our wide range of free events for all the family. Who doesn’t like chocolate, after all?"
