Mark Hix and Melt celebrate the seasons

Summer has passed, and the hedgerows are richly laden with fruits perfect for foraging. Melt have worked with Mark Hix to create a delicious collection of chocolates inspired by the hedgerows of the British countryside. Blackberries, rose-hip, hazelnut, elderberries and sloes all intertwine to create an abundant and varied natural crop.

"Foraged autumnal fruits are the ideal match to chocolate and what a great time to deliver them for the beginning of the winter season."
Mark Hix



The Mark Hix Winter Collection includes:

Blackberry Bonbon - a tart, fruity blackberry puree in a dark chocolate shell, with a wonderful seedy texture.
Rose-hip – a delicate rose hip and hibiscus jelly layered with vanilla ganache and dipped in dark chocolate.
Toasted Hazelnut Bonbon – rich and comforting, filled with salted caramel.
Elderflower - a clean, bright elderflower pate de fruit, perfectly balancing the collection.


“I am fascinated with each changing day – from my first sighting of tiny hazelnut kernels emerging from their pointy green bonnets – to the very pretty, fragile blackberry flowers getting battered by the never ending rains this summer. I knew I wanted us at Melt to design recipes inspired by these ingredients, and who better than to collaborate with than British seasonal cooking expert and highly acclaimed chef, Mark Hix”
