I could get used to this. This week those lovely chocolatiers at Hotel Chocolat asked me to test out one of their Christmas chocolate gifts. Like there was ever any doubt that it would be anything other than spectacular... I picked the strangely named Christmas Pocket Selection. I say this because chocolate has spent time in my pocket, and has not lived to tell the tale. Yes, I was probably about five, but the memory of wasted chocolate stays with you for quite some time!
At £8.50 this makes a nice little stocking filler which feels rather refined indeed. It contains just the right amount to eat alone without actually making yourself sick, which is always a bonus. I could have eaten mine whilst lay in a hot bubble bath with a good book, but as I've been a right pig recently, I took them into work to share with my hard working pals.
This little box of delights contains the perfect mix for cake fans like me: Apple Strudel, Salted Caramel and Praline, Christmas Mess and Trillionaire's Shortbread. Reports are that they were all absolutely delicious. 'Unfortunately', one of the salted caramels broke during transit, so not wanting to make a mess of the others, I'm afraid I had to eat that one before they got to work...Join me on Facebook
