Delicious picks for National Chocolate Week…
This week marks National Chocolate Week so we’ve painstakingly searched high and low (and eaten far too much!) to bring you the most delicious chocolate on the luxury market. Enjoy!
Melt’s Round Praline Box
We love the new praline box from Melt – the combination of nuts and chocolate is always a winner. Each of the 19 chocolates is filled with hazelnut and pistachio cream. Melt hand-make all their chocolates with fresh natural ingredients in London.
L’Appetit Fou is an independent shop selling exquisite Belgian chocolate by the slab, bar and bite. It’s rated as one of London’s best chocolate shops. We love their praline products, handmade from the highest quality and available in a wide range of flavours. Try the hazelnut and salted caramel.
Booja Booja’s Almond Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffles
Who would have thought that dairy, gluten and soya free truffles could taste so good? Booja Booja has out-done themselves with all their Almond Salted Caramel Truffles. This award-winning yumminess melts in the mouth with chewy, gooey sea salted caramel and roasted almonds.
Rococo’s Sea Salt milk Chocolate Wafers
Rococo has been fulfilling customers chocolate fantasies for over 35 years. Steeped with a rich British heritage they aim to bring new tastes and experiences to their customers. Rococo believes in setting trends and using the finest ingredients, which corresponds with the deliciousness of all their products. Special mention goes to the Sea Salt Chocolate Wafers.
Prestat is the chosen chocolatier to Her Majesty The Queen. They’ve launched a new range of eight chocolate bars, five of which are vegan-friendly. They have collaborated with Domori, using their range of single-origin Côte d’Ivoire. We highly suggest you try the Milk Chocolate with Earl Grey and Lemon.
Fortnum & Mason’s Milk and Dark Selection
From the beautiful glided boxes to the intricately detailed chocolates, everything about this Fortnum & Mason box pleases. Our personal favourites are the nut clusters that have been wrapped in the slow-melted milk or dark chocolate.
Pierre Herme Paris’s Signature Chocolate Box
Pierre Herme believes that chocolate is a magic potion, a source of intense and unique pleasures. They believe you should consumer their delights in a quiet location so you can fully enjoy the unique flavour. We adore the Infiniment Praliné Noisette which contains crunchy, hazelnut praline with smooth almond paste, enrobed in dark chocolate.
Another win for plant-based eaters: Ananda’s vegan wagon wheel comprises squishy vanilla marshmallow sandwiched between two handmade chocolate biscuits, with a dollop of strawberry jam and rolled in chunky Belgian chocolate. A true rival to the traditional Wagon Wheel and a charming vegan stocking filler.
DeRosier Chocolates Box
These chocolates are handmade using the best quality single-origin couverture chocolate from Venezuela and Peru. They use the freshest ingredients in all boxes which enjoy a wide selection of flavours. Some personal favourites are the sea salted caramel and hazelnut praline.
