Today I finally opened my last remaining Christmas present: my Hotel Chocolat Dipping Adventure.
I’ve been waiting for a good time to delve into this delicious delight and today was the day. Guess what the special event was!? ….It was going to go out of date haha.
So I shamelessly stuffed my face with a sharing platter that, although it says for 2, could easily feed 4-6 people. The ‘dipping adventure’ includes milk chocolate and white chocolate dipping pots, chocolate almond biscuits, bread sticks, marshmallows and gianduja balls with 4 pairs of bamboo tongs to keep your hands nice and clean – they’re so thoughtful! I added the grapes to make me feel better about the calorific scoffing that was about to take place.
Here are some pictures so you can share a little of my sugary bliss.
I’d recommend this as a gift for any of you’re chocolate loving friends or to serve after a dinner party to share with your guest. The chocolate pots needed about 3 minutes in the microwave (in 1 minute bursts, you don’t want to burn your glorious glutton satisfier!). At £18 it’s definitely a treat, however the whole box is such high quality and absolutely delicious it’s worth every penny. I’d happily eat each element without the chocolate dip but hey if the option’s there, why not!?
If you haven’t heard of Hotel Chocolat, you can check them out here, they do a huge range of really interesting and unusual chocolates. All of their cocoa is ethically sourced which you can read about here and their concepts are original. There really is something for everyone!
