If you are giving chocolate for Christmas why not consider The Merry Little Christmas Hamper from Hotel Chocolat? Unwrapping this lovely selection will make anyone smile.
Christmas would not be Christmas without chocolate. On Christmas morning children receiving their gifts from Santa will unwrap some chocolate. Normally this is eaten for breakfast, adding to the excitement of Christmas. Hunger then builds as smell of Christmas lunch cooking wafts round the house and tasty nibbles whet the appetite. Chocolate is not just for children. Adults also appreciate the gift of chocolate at Christmas.
Hotel Chocolat has a range of chocolate gifts any adult will love. Not only is the chocolate delicious, there is a quirky and whimsical quality about the gifts. Where else would you find a truffle tree or a chocolate festive wreath? There is everything from £5 stocking fillers to decadent £300 hampers. Recently I was sent The Merry Little Christmas Hamper to try out. Christmas for me had come early.
Hotel Chocolat The Merry Little Christmas Hamper
One of the things I love about receiving Hotel Chocolat gifts is the presentation. There is something exciting about receiving a Hotel Chocolat gift bag. The cream paper bag with it’s signature logo and black ribbon handles indicate luxury before you unwrap it. The gift card indicates who it is from in a subtle manner. Anticipation builds as you open the bag and look inside. The Very Merry Little Chistmas Hamper is a perfect gift.
The red ribbon on the outside of the box gives it a festive feel before you open it to find the chocolate goodness inside. There is a selection of six different packages, each containing their own chocolate delight. Choose from Clementine Baby Bombes, a 40% milk snowflake, Rocky Road Slab, Comet Does Caramel Slab, Christmas Pocket Selection, Salted Caramel Nano Slab and Fruit & Nut Nano Slab. The only questions are which to open first and do you share?
Comet Does Caramel Slab
Comet does Caramel is a festive chocolate slab with a milk chocolate sky and white chocolate snow. Comet the reindeer makes a guest appearance on the bar wearing a scarf to keep him warm. The taste is delightful, the blend of milk and white chocolate work together well.
Rocky Road Slab
Rocky road in a chocolate slab? What could be nicer? This slab of milk chocolate has cookies, puffed rice and chocolate in one bar.
Christmas Pocket Selection
The Christmas pocket selection is a selection of four very pretty chocolates in a red ribbon wrapped box. The selection has a festive look and almost resemble Christmas decorations. They taste amazing as well.
Salted Caramel Nano Slab and Fruit & Nut Nano Slab
These little chocolate slabs are artistic to look at, one with a fruit topping and the other with a signature Hotel Chocolat logo on the front. Both are a delight to eat.
40% Milk Snowflake
How pretty is this snowflake? The design is incredibly detailed and it does look like a large snowflake. It is a lovely addition to a Christmas chocolate hamper.
Clementine Baby Bombes
The Clementine Baby Bombes come in a small bag with a red ribbon at the top which adds colour to the presentation. They fit in well with the look and feel on the hamper. These delicious orange bites are incredibly tasty and did not last long at all.

I was sent a hamper from Hotel Chocolat in return for a review. I was not obliged to say anything nice and my opinions are my own.
