It is that time of year again, folks. The time to eat and be merry as we celebrate Christmas (as well as a cheeky competition of course).
Hotel Chocolat have a delicious range this year, perfect for all tastes and budgets. I went along to the launch of their Christmas products up in Covent Garden and it was fantastic. Really got me in the mood for Christmas. I was pleased to see that this year they have vegan chocolate (or suitable for those with a dairy allergy). I tried some and it was so good. So look out for their dark chocolate advent calendar and wreaths.
I have been trying out their alternative mince pies, as well as their milk chocolate advent calendar. The ‘mince pies’ are a really tasty alternative (though I am a mince pie fan anyway). They are rich and smooth as they are filled with a blend of praline and caramel with a pinch of salt. If you don’t like the spice of a mince pie, or the chopped fruit, this would be a great alternative. They are £7.50 which would be a good stocking filler. Or you could leave it out for Father Christmas – too good for the kids haha.
The advent calendar is a really good size. But it has to be for someone that can resist not opening the boxes all at once. the chocolate is rich, thick and delicious. I like that there are a few options for the calendar, including dark or caramel too. At £12.50 I think it would have to be a real treat for someone (or yourself). But it is Christmas after all!
