The thickness of the chocolate blend is specially formulated to melt well, flow and coat evenly, yet still hold a mark or other decoration; ideal for cooking, chocolate making and cake decorating.

And you don’t have to just use Haigh’s Dark Chocolate Couverture in your cooking; Haigh’s Milk and Dark Pastilles or their range of Block Chocolates are also great to make scrumptious desserts and treats.
