Win a Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar




COMPETITION CLOSED
Christmas is not so far away (7 weeks to be exact) and to celebrate Hotel Chocolat have plied me with chocolate...again. They have kindly let me road test not one but two Advent Calendars  AND given you the opportunity to win them in a little Christmas competition (2 winners this time so double the chance of winning).

First up was the Childrens Advent Calendar which Lowen reviewed (although I think she was getting confused thinking it actually was Christmas - she's only 3!). The Advent Calender was filled with milk chocolate in 6 different festive shapes, Lowens favourite being the reindeer below. The calendar also included 3 Christmas decorations to cut out and hang on your tree.


Hubby and I got to road test the Truffles for Share Calendar, which handily has two truffles behind each window - no more fighting over one chocolate for us! There are 6 different varieties of truffles, my favourite was the mousse au chocolat but the gingerbread truffle came a close second. Hubby's favourite was the Orange Liquor.


To be in with a chance of winning both the Childrens Advent Calendar and Truffles to Share Calendar all you have to do is;
1. Check out Hotel Chocolats christmas gifts and let me know which gift you would most like to find in your stocking on Christmas Day.
2. Leave your answers in the comments section of this post, or the Jam and Clotted Cream Facebook Page. I will also accept entries on Twitter (start your tweet @jamandcream HChoc).
3. Competition open to UK residents only.
4. Competition closes on 19th November at 5pm.
5. Share the competition on Facebook or RT on Twitter for an extra entry (use the widget at the bottom of this post).

  93. It's really tempting to say the Chocolatier's Table Luxe, or the Christmas Pamper Hamper - but I know I'd make myself sick on both of them, because I just couldn't leave them alone! So I'm going for something a little more restrained. Cinnamon Rum Sultanas sound gorgeous - a grown-up version of the chocolate raisins I used to love as a child!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!


TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
