Party Catering can be fun with Funnells Kitchen chocolate lollies. They are great for parties, events or just something to make with your kids. Young or old people will love these delicious treats!
Dark chocolate minimum 50% cocoa solids
Round lolly sticks
Mini fudge squares
Freeze dried raspberries
Whatever is in your cupboard!
Party Catering: The Chocolate
1) Boil a pan of water on your stove. Then place a suitable bowl over the pan and drop in the dark chocolate (50% cocoa solids). Stir until completely melted.
2) Then place a piece of greaseproof paper on a tray and spoon on a dollop of dark chocolate. Use the back of the spoon to spread the dark chocolate into a circle. Continue making more dark chocolate circles depending on how many lollypops you want (or can fit on your greaseproof paper!)
Jamie’s tips and Tricks – Keep your lollies an even size and well-spaced on the greaseproof paper.
3) Take a lolly stick, place it in the chocolate circle you’ve created and gently roll the lollypop until it’s completely covered in chocolate.
Jamie’s Tips and Tricks – Ensure the lolly stick is well coated with chocolate to give it a firm grip.
Party Catering: The Fun Fillings
4) Carefully drop your chosen fillings onto the chocolate. What you put on your lollypops is up to you. Have fun and get creative. I found the more variety the more people will enjoy these treats!
Jamie’s Tips and Tricks -Always place the toppings on before the chocolate sets.
5) Melt some more chocolate white or dark and carefully drizzle over the lollypops. This will give extra hold for your toppings and boost the effect of these tasty looking delights.
Party Catering: Let Them Set
6) Once you have created your lollypops place them in your fridge for 10-20 minutes. Once the lollypops are set you can carefully peel them off the greaseproof, there is a bit of a technique but you’ll be fine.
7) We find a great way to display them using some oasis (the foam florists use as a base to stick flowers in). If you don’t have any oasis you can use a tall jar or mug to pop the lollypops into, but trust me they won’t stand around for long, theses Lollypops will vanish very quickly!!

An Incredible Year
It’s been an incredible year at Funnells Kitchen, we’ve been working hard opening our second kitchen in Norwich. It’s great to be caterer in Norwich. Norwich is such a vibrant city and Norfolk is full of exciting and growing businesses, we can’t wait to help them grow and develop further over the coming years.
Our chef’s passion for good food is something we believe we can bring to Norwich and Norfolk. Our approach to good quality food means that we bring handmade food from locally sourced ingredients to create corporate catering like no other.
A Caterer in Norwich: From Strength to Strength
Over the past few years Funnells Kitchen has gone from strength to strength. Being nominated for Archant’s Future 50 showed us just how far we have come! For us this was a clear indication that our approach to corporate catering is working. We have always seen our role as support for our clients in the day to day running of their business. Delivering good food, on time for any sized event is our passion.
Setting up our second kitchen means we can bring out unique approach to being a caterer in Norwich . Our Norwich clients have been supportive and delighted with the opening of the second much closer kitchen allowing us to service them more fully and for us to feel truly part of the Norwich and Norfolk Business community.

We are looking forward to forging strong long-lasting relationships with the businesses of Norfolk and deliver corporate catering that helps take their business food to the next level.
Catering Services in Norfolk & Suffolk: Funnells Kitchen are proud to be a Future 50 member. Over the past few years Funnells Kitchen has been growing and expanding, this journey has culminated in being chosen as an Archant Future 50 2016 member.
A Catering Services: Our Ethos
Future 50 looks for many attributes in a business and we were very pleased to be asked to be a member. They look for leadership in a business, driving forward performance and engagement. They want businesses that create a well-defined culture that promotes skill development and acquiring knowledge which I am proud to say is a key part of the Funnells Kitchen catering services ethos.
Being named a Future 50 member has allowed us access to some huge benefits. We’ve been able to connect with other Future 50 members offering support and services to one another. A key part of being a member of the future 50 is the access to funding and business support. This has allowed Funnells Kitchen catering services to grow more rapidly than we might have done and we are able to take advantage of our unique position within the corporate catering market place in Norwich.
A Business of Value
I think what has meant the most to me is to see the catering services I have helped build over the last 14 years be asked to stand next to other businesses that are growing and valued within Norfolk and Suffolk. It makes me proud that Funnells Kitchen is there as a business that gives real value to it’s customers and the community and I can’t wait to see where Funnells Kitchen goes next.
I would like to say a big Thank you to everyone who has made Funnells Kitchen the business it is today.
Our catering business has been taken to the next level with our latest marketing videos. We are so excited to show your how we made our catering business’ promotional video. I first met Michael Stiff back in March of this year. The idea of online video being able to convey what makes Funnells Kitchen different really excited me. I knew online video was becoming more and more relevant in modern business marketing and I was keen to keep Funnells Kitchen moving forward with as a progressive catering business.
Catering Business: The Whole Package
At the time we were looking to update our own image, website and branding. Talking this through with Michael he pitched to me the idea of a complete package where he and Aaron Fickling would spearhead a whole project including a brand realignment, a new website, a series of promotional videos and a launch campaign as we opened our second Kitchen in Norwich. I was really excited and we set about taking Funnells Kitchen to the next level.
Over the next few months we worked closely with Michael and Aaron as they began to help us discover what made Funnells Kitchen different in the catering business market place. Through discovery meetings and talking with our clients we built up an even sharper picture of would we are and what it means to be a Funnells Kitchen client.
The Shoot Day Arrived
A big part of our brand realignment and the opening of our second kitchen was a set of promotional videos. It was great when the shoot day finally arrived and our chef’s began making the first of our extensive list of recipes for the two day shoot.
The crew was large and we had photography as well as film to do. The team worked well and the chef’s soon got into the swing of things it was very different from their usual day to day. On an average day our chefs would be making pizza for thirty people on the shoot they made the same pizza thirty times!
I was very impressed with the crew and their devotion to getting just the right shot to show off our food in the best way possible. Everyone worked hard under the direction of Michael with Aaron heading up the photoshoot, together they kept it all on an even keel. It was interesting to see exactly how a film is put together and the time it takes to light, arrange, rehearse and finally shoot each shot. You realise that these guys were professionals and knew how to get the most out of our lovely food.
It’s a Wrap
When the two days came to an end, Michael called “It’s A Wrap” and the crew were very excited to be finally able to try Jamie’s signature donuts. They all set about enjoying something they had watched being made for nearly two days!
The final video really does show what Funnells Kitchen is, what we believe as a company and why our aim is for each of our business catering clients to experience good food. The video has given us a promotional tool that sets us apart from our competitors and shows our clients why Funnells Kitchen is a catering business with a difference. The video allows us to connect with new customers by showing them what is important to us and why we feel quality catering business is so important.
Unexpectedly the video has also given our staff a real understanding of what it means to be working for Funnell’s Kitchen. It’s helped us craft our mission statement going forward, it’s added to our great business culture by helping us to continue to work towards the same goals.
Any business is thinking about video marketing I would say go for it. You will have a lot of fun making it and get a real marketing asset at the end of the experience that will help you drive growth in your business.

Unfortunately because we don’t get to see the sun as much as we would like to, as soon as it does make an appearance one word immediately pops into our heads…BBQ! We have all done it, rushing to the supermarket as soon as the sun comes out only to find cheap burgers and sausages left on the shelves and by the time we get home the clouds are starting to appear. So why do we love BBQs so much?
BBQs give us the perfect excuse to invite family and friends over for a get together, it is one of the very few meals where it is acceptable to use plastic cups and cutlery, the list of food you can cook on a BBQ is endless and best of all it’s an excuse to have a good time!
Organise the perfect BBQ with help from Funnells. If you love BBQs but would prefer to let someone else to do the cooking this is where we come in.
Here are a few things you need to know about our BBQ service…
We have TWO BBQ menus to choose from, Hunky Dory BBQ and Gourmet BBQ, each served with mouth-watering salads and desserts.
Our prices include condiments and a fully trained chef with a helper to cook and serve.
Set up includes a 3m x 3m gazebo and two 6ft tables with covers. We supply china plates, napkins and cutlery as standard (disposable items are available if requested).
We can cater at all different types of events such as Weddings, corporate events, celebratory events and even school proms.
Most importantly the food tastes delicious!
The food, condiments, crockery and service is sorted so all you need to worry about is the Pimms and having a good time of course.
