I know, I know – chocolates are a cliche. But actually, a cliche only becomes one when it’s true.
And sometimes, if it’s a little bit special, then some delicious chocolates might just be the ticket.
And this selection box from Hotel Chocolat? Totally perfect.
27 finest Hotel Chocolat recipes in a varied range of milk, dark, white and caramel chocolate to suit everyone’s tastes, from pralines to desserts and fruity truffles to tipsy ones.
The personal favourite in THIS house is the Eton Mess, but there’s also a particular fondness for the Raspberry Smoothie (an all round favourite, with Tasting Club members scoring it top four times! The raspberry white chocolate ganache has the perfect level of zing, bursting with lots of raspberry flavour), and for me the Carrot Cake is the one I’m always going to steal (it’s an Academy of Chocolate award winner. Light, creamy and subtly spicy, with orange inside that’s all from real carrot).
The Hotel Chocolat Father’s Day Sleekster comes boxed perfectly, ready to give to the man who taught you to ride your bike, fixed your car or bailed you out more times than you can possibly remember. It’s £22.50, and worth every (cocoa) bean.
