These Singing Hinny Truffles were created to encapsulate the spirit of Northumberland during the recent Great Exhibition:
“The Great Exhibition of the North has been my inspiration to connect with the culinary heritage of the region. I hope these chocolates will give a flavour of the North East as we celebrate and reflect on our amazing heritage, and enjoy all that our fabulous city has to offer”.
Jane Williams, Head Chocolatier, Davenport’s Chocolates
The Singing Hinny is a rich Northumbrian ‘drop scone’, each side cooked in turn on a hot griddle with a sizzle that ‘sings’. It dates back to cooking traditions of Northumberland coal miners’ families in the nineteenth century. It is served with a knob of melting butter and a spoonful of brown sugar.
Our ‘Singing Hinny’ is a white chocolate truffle, dotted with raisin and shortbread crumbs. It is then enrobed in smooth milk chocolate and finished with a dusting of sugar.
“Hinny” is a term of endearment, from honey and we hope you will one day enjoy the hospitality of the North East of England. For now, enjoy a taste of the heritage of the region with this rather delicious white and milk chocolate truffle.
Each chocolate is handcrafted by us in our boutique studio, they are perfect if you are looking for a gift that feels unique and individual.
All our ingredients are sourced as ethically as possible, as well as tasting amazing. Our cocoa beans are bought from co-operative farms which give back to the local community.
