Not long until Valentine’s Day, even though some of the local supermarkets are already stacking their shelves with Easter Eggs, but let’s get one special day out of the way before we start buying for the other hey?
I can’t say that really as I’ve been lucky enough to have a sneaky preview of what Hotel Chocolat have up for offer for Valentines Day and they have a beautiful selection.
The Sleekster Selection (£22.00) 27 heart-shaped truffles in milk, dark and white chocolate, each with a stunning soft centre. They are beautiful. I’m more of a fruit centre person so if it were just a box full of the passion fruit truffle or the Lemon Berry Tart, I’d have been happy but with a luscious selection including Salted Almond Praline, Caramel Dizzy Praline, Gin Truffle Heart and Balsamic Caramel, there is something for everyones taste.
Calorie wise I didn’t look but I imagine they are at least 60 calories per chocolate so don’t pig out (unlike us since we ate the box within a couple of days) and take it easy – they’re actually too gorgeous to rush.
