Getting festive with Hotel Chocolat

There’s always great excitement in this household as December approaches.  There’s Monkey’s birthday to look forward to of course, but with two chocoholics in the household the first of December means advent calendar time.  This year we’ll be getting festive with Hotel Chocolat.

Monkey and Daddy P have decided that they are going to share this years Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar.  Although I wonder just how many doors Daddy P will get to open. We’ve opted for the Milk Chocolate option to please both of them, if I’d had my way it would have been the Caramel version all the way!  There’s also dark and white chocolate options available.

You open the advent calendar up and to discover the doors waiting to be opened.

I don’t know about you, but half the enjoyment with these calendar’s is finding the right day each morning and then discovering what treat lies hidden inside.  With this years Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar the 24 chocolate surprises could be anything from an angel, penguin, snowman or even Santa himself.  The solid chocolate figures are 40% milk, and utterly devine.

My two taste testers give these chocolates a big thumbs up, priced at £12.50 getting festive with Hotel Chocolat and their advent calendars couldn’t be easier.

I also wanted something a little different on the treat front for the grown ups to share.  The Large Festive Wreath – Rare and Vintage, fits the bill perfectly.

Formed with 72% dark chocolate, this Large Festive Wreath is 450g (smaller sizes are available!) of pure heaven.  The wreath is crammed full of almonds, cranberries and hazelnuts and it would be a welcome addition to any festive table this Christmas, don’t you think.

Priced at £22 I will do my best to share this with my guests, but I’m not promising! There’s also a Cookie version which looks and sounds devine too.

If you’re looking for some Christmas stocking filler ideas then Hotel Chocolat have some lovely Portly Penguins and Jolly Santa‘s which always go down a treat here.

Whatever your chocolate tastes, you’re sure to find something to enjoy over the festive season with Hotel Chocolat.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
