One way to make this blogger happy is to send me chocolate (or tea) and recently I got this lovely surprise in the post. It is part of the Christmas range from Hotel Chocolat, the Hotel Chocolat Festive Wreath. I love Christmas, it is always a good excuse to indulge in chocolate and the Hotel Chocolat Festive Wreath is something rather special.
There is a beautiful bow at the top and underneath are the berries and leaves, all perfectly formed in the chocolate. When you open the box a gorgeous smell of chocolate wafts out, tempting you to eat it.
Here is a close up of the top to show the detail, it is almost a shame to eat it.
Now the most important thing about any chocolate is the taste, it is pointless it looking pretty if it does not taste nice. Hotel Chocolate do not let you down. This is absolutely gorgeous.The chocolate, although it is described as milk chocolate, is very rich and almost like dark chocolate. It contrasts perfectly with the rich sweet brittle caramel and the crunch of the biscuits. A small bit is really all that is needed as it feels so expensive and rich. The Hotel Chocolate Festive Wreath is really nice and you should definitely buy one for Christmas, it makes a really special treat.
The Hotel Chocolat Festive Wreath is RRP £20.00 for a 450g wreath. There is also a smaller 100g version available RRP £7.00. The Hotel Chocolat Festive Wreath is available in store or can be ordered online on the Hotel Chocolat website.
