Hotel Chocolat Banoffee Pie

Happy 2018 Everyone! It is practically half way through January, how can this be? Today marks my first post of the year, yes I could do a nice healthy number but the chocolate has won me over. Last year we had the Hotel Chocolat Treacle Tart, which in its entirety was pretty good, however it is now the turn of a banana classic, enter Hotel Chocolat Banoffee Pie.  Of the two I have tried this is the one I was most excited about because of the banana element. Typically getting the banana flavour right is a tricky business, it is…

McVitie’s Chocolate Orange Nibbles

It’s so close to Christmas we can almost taste it! I have been raving about the McVitie’s White Chocolate Nibbles, honestly if you haven’t given them a go get some pronto before they disappear! Needless to say whilst getting myself another bag of these beauties I spied McVitie’s Chocolate Orange Nibbles.  Frankly I cannot believe that I have not come across these sooner, despite the packets saying they are new it would appear that they have actually been out for a number of months.

Eagled eyed readers from my last review may…

The not quite in the festive mood yet, slowly getting there, or are you embracing the full on Christmas spirit and have Magic Xmas on all day every day (yes that is me).

Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb

Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb, could it be as fantastic as it sounds? These artisan confectioners are known for their buttery fudge, chewy honeycomb and varying brittles, and come the festive season even they cannot resist getting into the spirit of things. With endless choices the Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb is certainly the one that caught my eye, how can they combine the two? Handmade in their kitchen’s in Cornwall, these sizeable chunks of honeycomb are suitable for vegetarians, have no nasty artificial flavourings and are gluten free. A 150g box comes in at £3.99. I love the cute packaging, it may just be…
