Now that's what I call Amazing Chocolate!

Amazing Chocolate | The World of Suzy Homemaker

A couple of weeks ago, Beloved I bobbed over to the Derbyshire Summer Market, at The Roundhouse in Derby - the first and oldest surviving railway roundhouse in the world. I'd never been before, but what a stunning venue! With its beautiful architecture, The Roundhouse is a far cry from the local village hall and yet it was still only £1 entry and £1 for parking.


I'm a bit of a sucker for craft markets and was expecting the usual stands of this and that. But I was in for a real treat. It wasn't just the venue that was stunning; the range and quality of the wares on offer was quite something.

Oh yes. This was MY kinda market.

Fabulous Places

The Derbyshire Summer Market is one of three annual artisan food and gift events, organised by fellow blogger Deb Kendall, over at Fabulous Places and it was jam-packed with wonderful stalls.

In addition to delicious looking food and great crafts, I was delighted to see my lovely Annie Sloan stockists Little Paperie and one of my fellow WiRE Uttoxeter ladies, Louise Grey of Silver Sentiments.

I was wowed by the beautiful floral offerings of Derby florist, Selena's Contemporary Flowers and I simply could not resist THE perfect plaque for my She Shed, from Winning Works.

D'ya think Beloved will get the message?

As for the wide range of homewares stalls... well, I could've spent an absolute fortune.

I didn't know where to look first!

Amazing Chocolate

After wandering VERY slowly around the event and excitedly chewing the ear off many a poor stallholder about The World of Suzy Homemaker, I discovered chocolate.

Not just any chocolate...

AMAZING chocolate!

The Amazing Chocolate Workshop produces astounding, hand-crafted tools, machinery and paraphernalia out of dairy-free, organic chocolate.

There were unbelievably realistic objects like horseshoes, paintbrushes, tubes of paint and cameras. And as for the tools. Oh wow! Screwdrivers, hammers, disc saws, pliers, Allan keys, wrenches... You name it; these guys make it from chocolate! There were even vintage gold taps.


Most incredible of all were the working nuts and bolts... they ACTUALLY screw together.

I was awe-struck.

This chocolate truly IS amazing! And it totally solves the age-old "what to buy the bloke?" problem. Well come on... chocolate AND tools? Bloody genius! Watch out Pops – you know what you're getting for your next Birthday!!!

Naturally, I couldn't leave the stand empty handed, so I bought Beloved a spanner. Although, given his aversion for all things DIY, I did wonder if he'd know what it was.

(I am SO going to get a slap for that one!)

He was most put out at not being allowed to eat his gift before I'd photographed it (such is the life of a Blogger's husband!), so he had to suffer the teasing cat calls from the fridge, before finally being allowed to sink his teeth in.

And the verdict?

It really IS chocolate!


At the moment, you can only find The Amazing Chocolate Workshop at food and craft events like the Derbyshire Summer Market, but I understand from Edward (he's the guy on the right) that company's website is due to go live any day.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that online shopping is in the company's immediate future! In the meantime, if you want to know where you can buy some of his magnificent creations, give Edward a call.

Now, if you don't mind, I have a spanner to finish scoffing and a fabulous blogger to contact about attending the Derbyshire Christmas Market...

A hui hou,



I have not been compensated in any way for this post, I just happen to think this company is brilliant! But who knows... maybe the guys over at The Amazing Chocolate Workshop might fancy working with me in the future ;-)
