Owner description: Co Couture has been creating premium chocolates and chocolate products right in the heart of Belfast, less than 100m from City Hall, since 2008. Their luxurious wares are handcrafted in small batches using only the finest raw ingredients; local produce where possible and equitably-traded products otherwise. Their chocolate is all gluten-free and refined-sugar-free, so much healthier than one might expect. Can you imagine a chocolate brownie with less calories than a banana? Co Couture have made it a reality. They’ve also created a range of dairy-free chocolates and highly sought-after vegetarian marshmallows; a recipe which took 2 years to perfect. Everything from Co Couture is made using exquisite Madagascan chocolate to ensure the ultimate taste experience. As the chocolate is RaiseTrade (one step above FairTrade), it is helping Madagascar to add further skills and wealth per capita, as well as increasing tax revenues to apply to the nation's developmental needs. So far Co Couture has secured over 20 prestigious national and international awards, including the Great Taste Awards Northern Ireland Speciality Producer Champion 2008, runner-up for Best Independent Retailer in the UK (top 4 in NI) at the Observer Food Awards 2013, and 10 medals at the Academy of Chocolate awards from 2009-2015. They also won a silver medal at the 2014 International Chocolate Awards, which has put Co Couture within the top 40 chocolateries in the world. They are currently ranked top 4 in the UK and number 1 in Ireland.

Very impressed with the Dessert Club at Co Couture, would recommend for any chocolate lovers looking for a break from the hustle bustle in town.

Their hot chocolate is completely different to any others we've tried - smooth and not sickeningly sweet. The choice was amazing but this will change with each club, I'm sure they won't disappoint though!

Nice atmosphere in the shop and the best smell of freshly made chocolate - only two tables though so be sure to book!

You should not miss this small but top-notch Chocolate lovers paradise.

Deirdre's chocolate is all absolutely superb and as dedicated expert owner Deirdre says on their own little one-page website: ''Co Couture make everything in small batches using only the finest raw ingredients to ensure the ultimate taste sensation. Experience the quality and pleasure in every delightful bite of the tantalising selection of fresh chocolates and chocolate bars. And Co Couture is not simply saying it - the Guild of Fine Food awarded the Irish Whisky Truffle the coveted 3 Gold stars in the Great Taste Awards 2008. Co Couture's Dark Chocolate with Biscuit & Cranberry also received 2 Gold stars.''

This is firmly at the top of our ''Must-Do'' List when we are in Belfast.

They are very centrally situated just a minute from the heart of the city centre which is Donegall Square. Very very easy to find: with your back to the big gates at the main entrance to City Hall on North Donegall Square walk to the right (towards the East) and at the north-east corner of the square cross the road and stay on the right as you enter Chichester Street and you will see Co Couture just a couple of doors along at No 7 in a basement shop.

You will love this - it is a delightful and we believe that it is a terrific real find.

This small, hidden shop placed in the centre of Belfast is a must visit for any chocolate lovers.

The owner who usually serves behind the counter is so helpful and welcoming in deciding what chocolate you receive with your hot drink. The hot chocolate itself is fantastic.

It really is a must place to visit in Belfast.
