Hotel Chocolat’s 2016 Christmas chocolate collection, a feast of chocolate goodies perfect for giving as Christmas chocolate gifts or for sharing with family and friends, and of course the odd chocolate treat for you! Hotel Chocolat is my favourite chocolate shop and as normal Hotel Chocolat have the largest and more impressive selection of chocolates for Christmas including chocolate boxes, gift hampers, chocolate stocking fillers and a selection of Christmas chocolate gifts.
These are just a sample of the wonderful chocolates in the whole range.
Christmas Chocolate Boxes
Hotel Chocolat Sleeksters
Hotel Chocolat are probably best known for their chocolate boxes, the Sleeksters, these are bestsellers all year round and they have two Sleeksters for Christmas 2016.
At the heart of the Christmas range is the Christmas chocolate box, the Classic Christmas Sleekster, a collection of milk, dark and white chocolates with and without alcohol in Christmassy shapes and flavours presented a seasonal Sleekster box.
The other Sleekster is the Winter Puddings Chocolate Box, a chocolate box filled with a selection of chocolates inspired by Christmas and winter desserts, twenty-seven chocolates in fifteen different flavours.
£22.50, 305g and 340g, each.
Hotel Chocolat H-Boxes
The Sleeksters are Hotel Chocolat’s large chocolate boxes, their smaller chocolate boxes are called H-Boxes and for each Sleekster there is a H-Box to match.
The flavours and recipes in the H-Boxes are almost exactly the same as the larger versions; Hotel Chocolat Christmas Chocolate H-Box the smaller version of the Christmas Sleekster and the Hotel Chocolat Christmas Puddings H-Box is the H-Box matching the Winter Desserts Sleekster, some chocolates are only available in the Sleeksters, the colour coordinated boxes are just smaller, but perfectly formed!
In total there are ten different Sleeksters and ten matching H-Boxes, including the seasonal editions, each box makes a wonderful gift whether it is a Christmassy one or not, you can find all of the Hotel Chocolat Sleeksters & H-Boxes here.
£12.50, 155g and 170g, each.
Mini Chocolate Boxes
For anyone familiar with the Simple Thanks mini chocolate box, you will be very pleased to know Classic collection also comes in the “eight” box and the even cuter “four” size, these miniature boxes make great gifts (and table favours).
Both the Mini Christmas Chocolate Box and the Small Christmas Chocolate Box are presented as ribbon tied Christmas gifts with clear lids, so you can see the wonderful chocolates inside, and have “Merry Christmas” written on the top on silver.
£5.00, 45g and £8.00, 90g.
Hotel Chocolat Stocking Fillers
Hotel Chocolat’s stocking fillers are availible in a variety of shapes and sizes; these are the cute boxed chocolate treats packed with flavour and charm. All of these stocking filler boxes are availible on mix and match: MIX & MATCH 3 or more for £6.00 each, or £7.50 per box.
All of the boxes are different shapes and sizes, and having differing amounts of chocolate – but they are similar enough not so start fights if you give different flavours to siblings, but just to be safe they are grouped by box size and number of chocolates!
The dark chocolate chilli penguins are made from 70% dark chocolate, which is both vegan and dairy free and there are ten penguins in total. Hotel Chocolat’s The Enchanted Forest contains ten mini Christmas trees made from 36% cocoa milk chocolate and caramel chocolate, also with ten chocolates in the box.
The smallest box contains my favourite, six chocolate mince pies – chocolate cups filled with hazelnut praline and salted caramel.
The “cute” stocking fillers or the “A Dozen …” boxes are the A Dozen Gingerbread Men and the A Dozen Portly Penguins, decorated to bring a smile to your face and flavoured make your mouth water – each with twelve chocolates inside.
In a different shaped box are Hotel Chocolat’s Christmas Baubles, chocolate truffles in three different flavours and festively decorated to look like mini Christmas baubles.
Fun, cute and delicious chocolate stocking fillers from Hotel Chocolat, for all ages.
£7.50, each or MIX & MATCH three or more for £6.00 each.
