After a thoroughly awful day at work I was in severe need of chocolate therapy. So finding a box of Just Truffles from Hotel Chocolat on the doorstop cheered me up no end. The smell as I opened the box was divine.
With 10 different alcohol laced chocolates to choose from including Kirsch, white rum, white champagne, cointreau and calvados. My favourite is Tiramisu, the contrast between the white and dark chocolate shell plus the tiramisu filling was delicious.
To be honest my favourite chocolates are usually the ones that involve coffee. I learnt as a young child it was advantageous to like coffee chocolates as more often than not they were always the ones left in the bottom of the tin. The trick being eat all the chocolates that everyone else likes first, then you’ll also have the coffee ones at the end that no one wants. I wasn’t daft!
I’ve promised to take the remainder of the box for my mum to taste on Mother’s Day. I can’t promise her how many will be left though. Thank goodness I didn’t give up chocolate for lent.
