Hotel Chocolat Christmas Review

I barely had a chance to review these stunning looking chocolates as I had beady eyes peering into my Signature Christmas Collection box (£25) from all directions!  


Everyone was hopeful I might throw a chocolate their way.  In the end I only savoured two for myself.  Hubbie, the boys and my mum (actually make that mainly my mum) claimed the rest…


I think when it comes to Hotel Chocolat you need to use more stealth, bring them out under the cover of darkness when everyone is hopefully sleeping so you can really give them the attention they deserve.  Otherwise you will be lucky to get any; they are swiped from the box and gobbled up with remarkable speed!!!


For £25 they are quite expensive for 19 chocolates, but everyone knows Hotel Chocolat is a quality top end brand, so for a gift it’s well worth splashing out on your loved ones.  These chocolates are beautifully presented in the box; it almost seems a shame to actually eat them, but then again the insides look quite fancy too!  Look at the layers...


I liked that the alcoholic ones are blended into the fillings, so you do not just get a mouthful of pure alcohol like you do in liqueurs that I am not so keen on.  The box had a nice balance of flavours, eldest proclaimed they were delicious and asked me not to mention to my mum I had them to review, when I asked him why he said because she will eat them all!  I think perhaps I should have listened because she did get a little carried away.  Although Christmas is about sharing, I keep trying to remember that as I gaze wistfully into the empty box…
