Festive Wreath with a difference

Look what a lovely postal courier bought me today. Yes a huge festive wreath just in time for Christmas. Only this isn’t your usual wreath that you may hang over a door! Oh no this is something much much better.
This fabulous large wreath is made from chocolate and a few other delights and is part of Hotel Chocolat festive range.

Hotel Chocolat is without doubt my favourite chocolatier. If ever I was asked to choose a favourite box of chocolates then they would be from here. The chocolates are very fresh, beautifully presented and the taste is heavenly. I have been lucky enough in the past to be kindly bought or given the odd box of delicious chocolates from Hotel Chocolat and they really do seem to be the best around. I have however never seen anything like this Festive Wreath before.
It’s quite large at least for a chocolate gift anyway and certainly has some weight to it. I was amazed at the work that had gone into this beautiful gift and the very unique fine details in the chocolate to create the wreath. Everything you would expect on a Christmas wreath was there such as leaves, bells and bows. I took some pictures but you really have to see it close up to appreciate the beautiful fine features. It’s almost like a work of art.

The wreath is created from 50% cocoa milk chocolate and decorated with bubbly cookies and hand cut Florentines. It’s designed in mind for sharing and to cut into several pieces. Enough for up to nine people. I think I would struggle to eat this by myself after all.

It weighs 450g so that’s almost half a kilo of pure indulgence and sweetness and definitely worth every penny of the £21.
It comes in it’s own gift box.
