Hard as it may be to believe, I’m not much of a chocolates kind of girl.
And heart-shaped chocolates for valentines?
WAY too obvious – and about as original as red roses.
But… sometimes, shocking as it may seem, I can be wrong.
Because actually, there’s never anything bad about being given flowers. Ever.
And if the right chocolates are in the right heart-shaped box?
They can be Pretty Perfect.
Rather like this vintage styled floral box from Charbonnel & Walker – absolutely beautiful.
And not only is it unbelievably pretty, but those chocolates taste at least TWICE as good as they look. Maybe three times.
Sadly, the husband is banned from all chocolates, and these are FAR too good to waste on the children. So it looks like I’ll have to take one for the team and work through the box myself, doesn’t it?
The Vintage Collection Heart from Charbonnel & Walker can be purchased direct from them for the princely sum of £25.
