We had our yearly staff party yesterday but this year it was extra special because:
we were named BEST CHOCOLATE SHOP IN ORLANDO BY ORLANDO MAGAZINE!
We are overjoyed that we have been voted the Best In Orlando! We are proud to be alongside some of Orlando's best restaurants and thank everyone who voted for us!
We celebrated at one of our very favorite places - Bosphorous! We have known the owners for over 25 years and they are the most wonderful people and neighbors. They use our dark chocolate in their Chocolate Baklava dessert, and serve our Pistachio gelato for dessert also! Talk about community! See some pictures from our fun evening, spent laughing, enjoying great company, and eating tons of delicious food! If you've never been to Bosphorous, put them on your Must-Eat list.
Did you know we have both white and semi-sweet baking chocolate? You can purchase them by the ounce and add them to your favorite recipe! We used the semi-sweet baking chips to make Sally's Baking Addiction's Seriously Fudgy Homemade Brownies recipe and when she says seriously fudgy, she wasn't exaggerating! The chocolate flavor is pronounced and rich, and the brownies came out soft and chewy (don't worry if they're a little flat - they're supposed to be like that). Check out the slideshow below to see pictures from our baking session, and the recipe is available here:

Here at Peterbrooke Winter Park we are always thinking of new and inventive ways to bring you delectable desserts! From our jaw-dropping Bubble Waffles to dipping pretty much anything you could dream of in our signature chocolate, to our 2 newest items: Dark Chocolate Blossom Bars and Macarons!
Dark Chocolate Blossom Bars
Not only are these beauties beautiful to look at, they are also good for you. Dark chocolate has many antioxidants - even more than green tea! In addition, the edible Violas we delicately place on the bars are well known for their cleansing properties. A dairy-free option is available in our 72% Super Dark Chocolate Blossom Bars!
Chef Maria and Chef Jackie attended a special macaron class in New York and have been busy perfecting a recipe all their own! Carefully selected ingredients and meticulous execution result in these decadent little pieces of heaven! What better treat to bring to a special person than a box of macarons?
Don't forget to pick up something special for Dad! Father's Day is June 18th, and we have everything from custom chocolate bars, to chocolate basketballs, footballs, and gift baskets! 🏀🏈
May 14th is Mother's Day, and what better way to show mom how much you appreciate her than with chocolate! From gourmet chocolate dipped berries, hand dipped caramel and chocolate apples, to fan favorite chocolate covered popcorn, there is no sweeter way to say "I Love You"!
Here at Peterbrooke, we love to customize gifts so if you can dream it, we can make it! Let us know how we can help you show the special mom in your life how much they mean to you!

Such an exciting morning! In celebration of National Chocolate Week, Winter Park Mayor Steve Leary joined Orange County Tax Collector Scott Randolph to visit our shop and they presented owner Kevin Wray with his business tax receipt.
Bubble Waffles will premiere at Peterbrooke Winter Park this Friday! We are so excited to be the first place in Orlando and Winter Park to offer these decadent creations! We have been working hard behind the scenes to perfect our recipes and only give you the best! Have you ever heard of or tried Bubble Waffles? Here's a little background on them. Bubble Waffles (also known as egg waffles) originated in Hong Kong and are among the most popular snacks sold by street vendors. They were first seen in the 1950's, and are best served hot, either plain or with toppings such as strawberry or chocolate. Here at Peterbrooke, we don't do anything plain! We are stuffing these fluffy waffles with our Italian Gelato and topping with whipped cream, and everything from M&M's, Fruity Pebbles, chocolate chips, and more! We hope you join us this Friday as we premiere this uniquely delicious treat in our Winter Park shop! What is your favorite topping? Let us know!
