​Sophie the Squirrel: we're nuts about her

16 November 2017

This Christmas Eve, you may plan to hang those stockings up well out of the reach of any eager little hands too impatient to wait until the morning to see what Father Christmas has brought. But watch out: height will be no obstacle for one nimble intruder.

Joining Freddie the Fox and Harry the Hedgehog among the loveable animals brought to life by the Enchanted Forest – with a little help from our chocolatiers’ magic touch – Sophie the Squirrel will delight anyone who discovers her chosen nesting place.

Handmade from our deliciously rich Swiss Grand Cru milk chocolate, Sophie sports the native red squirrel’s distinctive russet coat, carefully brushed on using cocoa butter. Hand-piped ear and eye details bring out her lively expression, while her bushy tail’s silver shimmer and white chocolate tip suggest that she’s only just finished bounding through freshly fallen snow.

Of course, all that scampering makes for a hungry squirrel. As a finishing touch, we’ve given her a pine cone brushed with a beautiful bronze lustre to nibble upon. So if on Christmas morning you notice any bite marks on those other stocking treats, look elsewhere for the culprits.
