Hotel Chocolat asked me if I wanted to try out their Patisserie Sleekster, a box of chocolates all recreating the wonders of desserts. What could be more perfect.
When I was browsing the menu card, deciding where to start, I couldn’t help but think about what a lovely mix of flavours and unique combination there were all in one box. Every chocolate in the box has something special about, something which maked it stand out. There are no dull fillers in this set, I wanted to try all of them! I’ll mention some of my favourites:
My first choice was the Carrot Cake chocolate, it just sounded like such a fun flavour combination. The chocolate was covered in milk chocolate and shaped a little like a cup. Once bitten the orange colour filling showed through. The taste was awesome, full of autumnal spice, warming but sweet, and with a hint of nut.
The Apple Strudel chocolate was another favourite, with its natural apple flavour, juicy and sweet with a lovely warmth of cinnamon. I do so love my cinnamon.
For the white chocolate fans the Strawberry Cheesecake will be a delight, the berry flavour is quite zingy, but the white chocolate had a lovely creamy edge, and the texture has a nice crunch from the biscuit bits.
The wafers are a nice touch, available in Blondie (white chocolate), Brownie and Orange; all had a nice texture and good flavour.
If you are a fan of caramel you have to check out the Billionaires Shortbread. The caramel flavour is spot on, sweet but oh so smooth. No added salt here, just pure rich flavour. The biscuit bits on top were a lovely touch, it's the kind of chocolate you could just eat a box of on their own!
I thought the section of chocolates were very well put together, and just something a bit different from the usual high street offering. Ideal if you need a box of chocolates for a special occasion, which will stand out.
