I’m a couple of days late in wishing you a Happy Advent, but I hope you are all taking some time to enjoy the preparations and lead-up to Christmas rather than being too stressed about it all. I must have done something good this year, as I have been sent my very own milk chocolate advent calender to open and enjoy every day by Hotel Chocolat. The very best thing about the countdown to Christmas is that the children seem to leap out of bed every morning, which means the school run is a lot smoother. Having my own calendar means that we can all share a morning ritual together and I get to start my day off with some chocolate, which is never a bad thing.
Other goodies in the Hotel Chocolat Christmas range that I’ve tried include -
- The Sleekster Winter Desserts Collection - the perfect present for any chocolate-loving couple or a good friend
- a box of Alternative Mince Pies - great for kids!
- and The Rabot Estate 1745 Wreath - I tried the small wreath – a good chunk of 75% dark chocolate, made with Trinitario beans grown by the Trinidad Cocoa Association, studded with Piedmont hazelnuts, Marcona almonds and South African raisins
For Christmas, I’d love The Festive Christmas Collection, since it contains lots of milk chocolate treats (which is my favourite in the whole Hotel Chocolate range) including the Milk Sparkling Stars and a gorgeous box of Little Caramel Angels.
The Hotel Chocolate Christmas range varies in price from £1.95 (chocolate lollipops etc) to £300 for The Ultimate Christmas Hamper.
What would you love from Hotel Chocolat for Christmas?
With many thanks to Hotel Chocolat for sending me some of the Christmas range for review. This is an unpaid post and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
