Valentines Day is two weeks away.... and what better way to treat the one you love than with a box of chocolates from the wonderful Hotel Chocolat.
My love affair with Hotel Chocolat goes way back; despite sampling many different brands of chocolates over the years I've yet to discover a better chocolatier! Their edible goodies make fabulous presents, whatever the occasion, and with prices ranging from £1.95 to £55 for their Valentine's chocolates there is something to suit everyone's budget.
Last week I was sent the Sleekster Love Collection to review. Yes, I know! It's a hard life. Seeing as they were Valentine's chocolates I decided to share them with Himself over a cafetiere of fresh coffee. Me! Sharing chocolate?! Who'd have thought it! (It was only because the box was so huge and I wanted to open them there and then - normally I would have hidden in the larder to eat them on my own).
Twenty four mouth watering chocolates including luscious cream truffles with sparkling champagne, the lingering warmth of caramel,
deep chocolate mousse, melt-in-the-mouth pralines and so much more ~ all presented in a stylish and elegant box. One word: WOW.
Every single chocolate was divine (yes, the other half and I sampled one of each variety between us in one sitting). My favourite was the salted praline (ohhh emmm geeeeee!) and Himself pinched both of the blueberry truffles, he loved them that much.
This gift box retails at £22.00 which is more than reasonable, and the best bit about Hotel Chocolat is that their chocolates can be ordered online and delivered straight to your loved ones door. Maximum brownie points with minimum effort!
Why not have a look at their website for more Valentine's Day inspiration. Hotel Chocolat are also on Facebook and Twitter.
You have ages to hint to your nearest and dearest too as there is a next day delivery option available right up until 13th February (charges apply).
Happy Valentine's Day, fellow chocoholics xoxox
