What chocolate is used?

 

Chocolate Works prides itself on using quality products supporting locally made businesses. Designed for the Australian palette our coverture chocolate is made here in Melbourne and provides that "melt in your mouth" experience. Our chocolate is a high grade mix of 33% cocoa solids in our milk chocolate and 55% in our dark chocolate. We provide milk, white and dark variety in our freshly made to order chocolates. We also use international Belgian chocolate for our Neapolitan's. Our chocolate coins come from Italy, another quality product using the finest ingredients. We also provide  Lindt™ chocolate bars and the Smarties used for our exclusive printed Smarties™ are provided by Nestle.

Moulded versus 3D

 

Moulded chocolate is when there is a logo or design embossed onto the surface of the mould. We create a specific mould for your chocolate and use this to make a message in a flat chocolate.  A 3D chocolate mould is when the chocolate is actually 3 dimensional like the lips, statue, champagne bottles. You will see most of our 3D product in the foiled range and on our online shop.

Do you do products other than chocolate?

Do you provide artwork services or do I have to supply artwork?
 
Generally clients will supply there own artwork based on our specifications, we'll send you an artwork template to work off.  If you want us to create artwork for you, that's no problem either, a small artwork fee is payable.
What designs work best in customised chocolate?
 
The simpler and clearer your design the better it will work. Eliminate fine details, keep a good level of white space and no clutter.  If you've got fine detail you need to get across consider adding a sticker or wrapper to your product instead of making your chocolate design too busy. If you really need fine detail in your chocolate, we recommend stepping up to a silicone mould instead of plastic.
What can I print on the smarties?

We advise to keep your design simple on the Smarties as they are so small and a complex design won’t print well. The Smarties are printed in Black colour only and white beans can be printed in colour.
