Leonidas (Selfridges)

Is there anything better than luxury Belgian chocolates? These are beautifully packaged, and wrapped in red paper. There is a lovely mismatch of goodies tucked away inside the box.

Included are pralines, solid chocolate discs shaped like coins (both milk and dark), and chocolates containing hazelnuts, crispy rice and coffee. Every chocolate is gorgeous, and made with thick rich Belgian chocolate which melts in the mouth. Proper luxury.
The only curious point is that there is no guide in the box explaining what each chocolate is. Maybe this is a deliberate gesture to promote the ‘mismatch’ style, or maybe I was just unlucky and mine got missed out of the box!
