Hotel Chocolat Review & Giveaway

Mmmm Chocolate!
Milk & chocolate reindeer

Puddles, Orange Nice Spice

I was recently sent The Classic Christmas Gift Basket to review, which was filled with Tiddly Reindeer milk chocolate, Cinnamon Almonds, Orange Nice Spice Puddles, 6 Alternative Mince Pies and Winter Liquid Chocolat. After sampling all the chocolate goodies, I am now keeping the rest for my Christmas Eve party.

The reindeer are super cute and are a lovely solid milky chocolate, perfect for the little ones to have with a glass of milk as a Christmas treat. For the grown ups, I will be serving the delicious alternative mince pies, that are milk chocolate cups filled with praline and salted caramel, and mugs of hot chocolate made with the heavenly liquid chocolat which has been given a winter twist with orange, chilli and spices. The Puddles are large, subtly spiced milk chocolate buttons with the warming flavour of orange and chilli and they will be served in mini latte cups. In mini bowls I plan to serve the caramelized Californian whole almonds dipped in milk chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. A chocolatey Christmas alternative to tea and cakes!

I'm also so pleased to announce a giveaway of The Seasonal Sixty Tin of Chocolates from Hotel Chocolat, worth £50!
