Novelty chocolate is just fun plain and simple, delicious chocolate moulded into novelty chocolate characters and shapes.
You can get chocolate novelties all year round, but it is only at Christmas you get the chocolate Santas in various guises, cute reindeer, delightful angels and mischievous snowman, all cast in chocolate just to make you smile.
My favourite, for this year, has to be Dasher The Reindeer from Hotel Chocolat; a chubby little Reindeer dressed up in his winter scarf with a winsome face.
Cast in, hollow, milk chocolate with white chocolate decorating his face and tummy and dark chocolate used on his features, he weighs 150g and is just under 14cm tall, he is just the cutest!
Dasher the chocolate Reindeer is a very cute character from Hotel Chocolat, proving very popular with children and adults alike. Every year he features quite a lot in Hotel Chocolat’s Christmas range in a variety of sizes and type of chocolates, including, very cute, chocolate lollies:
As Tiddly chocolates, in gift boxes of fun and cute novelty chocolates:

Stocking fillers, Secret Santa gifts and chocolate to share, fun novelty chocolate for Christmas from Hotel Chocolat.
Thorntons novelty chocolate characters, or chocolate models as they call them, come in variety of sizes from chocolate lollies to larger 3D figures. There are three different designs a chocolate Santa, Sidney the Snowman and Ronnie the Reindeer.
The three smaller models, available direct from Thorntons, can be iced with a personalised message and come in semi clear boxes so you can see the chocolate and message inside.
With the largest selection of chocolate Santas, chocolate Christmas tree decorations, Christmas figures and shapes, The Chocolate Trading Company, is the place to get the smaller chocolate novelties for Christmas.
