Hotel Chocolat Heart-To-Heart Goody Bag: A Review

Valentines Day is nudging closer and Hotel Chocolat kindly asked me to try out some of their Valentines Gifts for Him chocolates- all in the name of reviewing of course!

The Heart-To-Heart Goody Bag landed on my doorstep last Friday - a good day to arrive! So that evening Hubby and I sat down to the all important taste test - with a few cheeky glasses of wine (we were trying to re-create the ambience and romance of Valentines Day but unfortunately the 1 yr old kept waking up).

The Heart-To-Heart Goody Bag contained the following;
Contents: 100g Milk and White Chocolate Slab, 6 Praline Heart milk chocolates, 6 Caramel Heart chocolates and a bag of Milk Hearty Nibbles (Price: £16.00 on Hotel Chocolat website).

I'll start with my favourite - the Caramel Heart Chocolates. The caramel was silky smooth and tasted lovely and buttery. Definitely a winner and I could have done with double the number! The bag of Milk Hearty Nibbles was devoured by hubby before I even got a look in ( I was upstaris seeing to the baby at this point) - but, they were very good by all accounts.

Now, when it comes to white chocolate I am not a great fan but, the Milk and White chocolate slabs were a pleasant surprise, in fact almost a revelation (for someone who doesn't really like white chocolate) - mainly because of the streaks of dark chocolate that ran down the centre (I am a dark chocolate lover!).

Finally, the praline hearts, probably my least favourite chocolate in the pack, but hubby seemed to take no time at eating these either. This is definitely a Valentines present for a Milk Chocolate lover, which hubby is, so he was very happy indeed...

  3. corporate gift baskets

    Of all things related to give-away goody bags, I find chocolate the most enticing. I would want that to be a give away for next time.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

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.
