I love October but the constant rain today has been miserable. The children were really looking forward to a trip to the pumpkin patch but unfortunately this was cancelled due to the weather. In need of a little cheering up, we broke open the Halloween chocolates and sweets! We enjoy Autumn and love nothing more than enjoying some sweet treats whilst watching a family film.
We couldn’t resist the Halloween H-Box from Hotel Chocolat. The classic chocolate box is filled to the brim with 14 frighteningly flavoursome chocolates including a mixture of classics and Halloween specialities.
Dare to take a bite out of the Oozy Eyes; a classic 36% cocoa butter white and 40% cocoa milk chocolate. Crack open to release a gory red molten caramel. A delight to eat, as long as you don’t think about the poor soul whose eyes you’re eating!
The Spooky Spider is filled with sweet and salty peanut praline and wrapped in creamy milk chocolate, and the Ghastly Ghoul is overflowing with scarily soft ganache. For a smooth, mellow option, you’ll have to overcome your fears to pluck out the Boo! Chocolate, containing a terribly opulent vanilla white filling into the 50% chocolate cup. The Petrifying Pumpkin may look worried, but he’s a sure favourite with his wicked salted caramel cream filling.
For those who are afraid of things that go bump in the night, the Mousse au Chocolat and Dizzy Praline are soothing, satisfying and not spooky at all. We can’t say the same for the Grim Treater though; the sunken eyes of this spine-chilling skull can only be overpowered in one way – by eating it!
