Hotel Chocolat - The Nutty Collection

Hotel Chocolat have a great range Autumn products and Halloween themed chocolates for October - the spookiest month of the year! 

Having been asked if I'd like to review a box I chose The Nutty Collection.  


Praline-filled walnut, Caramel Truffle Acorns, Praline-filled Hazelnuts (with a whole nut tucked inside!), nutty caramel and and a delicious hazelnut praline.

Weight: 215g / 7.5oz and priced at £16.00

 Considering the high quality of the chocolate, great presentation and that they focus on ethically sourced cocoa to use in their products, I'd say the price is good and each chocolate is generously filled with either praline or truffle.

 Thank you to Hannah and Hotel Chocolat for sending me a box of The Nutty Collection to review.
All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of and therefore would buy myself.

Romantic Valentine Gifts from Hotel Chocolat

There's nothing like a bit of romance now and then and what better time than Valentine's day?  Once again Hotel Chocolat have an excellent range of chocolate Valentine's gifts that in my opinion can't be matched.  
Perfectly packaged in an outer box so it arrived through the post in tip top condition.  This stunning 'Sealed with a Kiss' heart shaped box of 36 chocolates is a perfect combination of soft caramels, melting pralines and silky soft truffles.
 The menu card included is very clear and explains each chocolate by picture. Big decision time - where to start first!
 
The box includes, Champagne Bellini, Soft Caramel, Zesty Orange Mousse, Black Cherry Truffle, Salted Praline, Strawberry Swoon and Lemon Berry Tart to name but a few. 

Placing an order takes no time at all and with a range of delivery options available, it's easy to send a gift to your loved one at any time.
 Thank you to Beth and Hotel Chocolat for sending me a box to review.

Make your Table Sparkle this Christmas with a Chocolate Wreath

At Christmas, the way the dining table looks is almost as important as the festive feast spread out upon it.  Whether you show it with a snowy white tablecloth and the best silver, with scattered pine cones, gold and silver glitter, candles, crackers or all of the above, Christmas dinner is a once a year occasion and deserves to look really special.  Little dishes of treats like sugared almonds, mixed nuts or chocolate ginger add to the effect.

For a combination of the traditional and the original, and for an addition to the table that everyone will welcome, it would be hard to beat a Hotel Chocolat wreath.  Made from solid milk or dark chocolate and studded with goodies, they are both decorative and delicious.
The classic Festive Wreath is made from Hotel Chocolat's 50% milk chocolate, with swirls of sweet caramel.  Its more sophisticated cousin, the Purist Festive Wreath, appeals to the refined palate with its indulgent 70% dark chocolate, made from pure Ecuadorian cocoa grown by a farmers’ cooperative in the unspoiled province of Napo.

Fruit, nuts and chocolate are all favourite nibbles at this time of year. Hotel Chocolat's Festive Wreaths presents all of the above in a combination as handy as it is tasty.  The milk chocolate Festive Wreath is a veritable biscuit barrel, covered with chunks of cookie and pieces of florentine, that festive confection of caramel, nuts and candied fruit.  The Purist Wreath's dark chocolate with its vanilla undertones is complimented by tender, golden raisins and two kinds of nut.  There are hazelnuts from Italy's Piedmont region, famed for their cultivation, and Marcona almonds, a small, sweet variety prized for their delicate flavour.

The wreaths are moulded to evoke the elements of a Christmas wreath in the traditional style. Under the delicious topping, the chocolate ring is shaped into holly leaves, bows, baubles and pine cones.

The Festive Wreath is suitable for vegetarians.  The Purist Festive Wreath is made without dairy products, making it vegan friendly too. Both wreaths come in a clear plastic box, adorned with a white ribbon for the Festive Wreath and a snazzy black ribbon befitting the dark Purist version, but we think you will prefer to display them on a suitably festive plate, to allow easier access. Nutcrackers not required!

The Festive Wreaths are available in two sizes.  The smaller 100g wreath is perfect for an after dinner nibble, while the large version, at 450g, serves eight and should last you well into an evening of party games or seasonal television watching.  The milk chocolate Festive Wreath costs £7 for the smaller edition or £20 for the large size, while the dark chocolate Purist wreath retails at £9 for the 100g version and £25 for the 450g model.

Whichever you choose, a Hotel Chocolat wreath is sure to make a centrepiece which will be remembered long after the chocolate itself has been consumed. You could even buy both and give your guests a choice. What could be more festive than that?

Hotel Chocolat Extra Thick Chocolate Egg - Review

Hotel Chocolat very kindly delivered us one of their Extra Thick Easter Eggs to try.  Named 'Serious Dark Fix,' it certainly lives up to its name!
 
The egg arrived well packaged and in perfect condition.  The actual egg packaging looks expensive too with a lovely black bow finishing it off.  Priced at £26 - I'd say it is certainly worth the money.

 The 'Serious Dark Fix' egg is made of 70% dark chocolate which really is very nice and thick.  As the name suggests it's a real chocolate fix for any chocolate lover!  
Two egg halves - one studded with crunchy cocoa nibs.  Inside the shells there are 14 chocolates with the most amazing fillings from rum, chilli praline, raspberry liqueur and salted caramel and more.
 Of course there are more Extra Thick Chocolate Eggs in the Easter egg collection including milk chocolate too if dark chocolate isn't your thing. 

Thank you to Beth and Hotel Chocolat for sending us one to try.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner (Tuesday February 14th) and Hotel Chocolat have a fantastic range of  Valentines Day Gifts that can be ordered online and delivered to your Valentine's door!
The Sleekster Love Selection Box not only looks good but it tastes good too.  Paul (the husband and official taster of all things chocolate) says once again Hotel Chocolat chocolates are the best!
So far he's tasted one of each flavour and can't fault any of them.

Priced at just £22 and contains 26 chocolates and truffles all with amazing fillings:
  Champagne and cherry, fruity blackcurrant and strawberry, liquid caramels, stunning hearts, luscious lips and much more.

Personally, I think the 'Sleekster' boxes are a great idea to send as a gift because you don't have to worry about the person being home for the delivery - the long slim box will fit through most letterboxes!

Christmas Gifts from Hotel Chocolat

Christmas is just around the corner and Hotel Chocolat have a great range of Christmas Gifts.  They also have a Stocking Fillers starting at just £5 
I was recently sent the Sleekster Classic Christmas Selection, what an amazing box of chocolates!    
Don't you just love the look of them?!

The Sleekster Christmas Selection sells for £22 which is excellent considering the quality.  These chocolates really are different and a cut above any other brand out there.
With a range of fillings from Simple Milk Truffle and Rum Truffle to Champagne Truffle.  There's also Mulled Wine, Christmas Mess, Cinnamon Praline, and Gingerbread Truffle too!
The Zesty Marzipan Star is even dabbed with edible gold!
Other interesting fillings include Star Anise and Salted Caramel, Chilli Truffle and Ginger Cheesecake and more.  In case you are wondering, it is suitable for vegetarians.

Another thing I personally like about the 'Sleekster' range of boxes, is that the box is just the right shape to fit through most standard sized letterboxes.  So, you can surprise someone with your gift without the worry of them being out when it arrives.   After all, if you have to ask them if they'll be in, it kinda gives the game away!
 Pop over to Hotel Chocolat and have a look for yourself.
 Thank you to Beth and Hotel Chocolat.
