It’s October which means Halloween is coming!! Although normally I would run a mile with anything spider like, these I welcomed with open arms. Why? Peanut Butter of course! Yes these Hotel Chocolat Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector are milk chocolate creepy-crawlies filled with smooth peanut butter with a dash of Guérande salt.
There are quite a few options in their Halloween Collection and include the Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector, Beastly Bites, Choose your Poison Cocktails, Skulls, Vampires and even a Halloween Party Kit. Of the stores I have visited there has been pretty much everything there but you can of course also buy online here.
As always the Selector’s come in at £3.95 a pop or 3 for £10. They are suitable for vegetarians and free from artificial colours and flavourings.
Thick and chunky there is a generous amount of chocolate encasing the peanut praline. As ever the chocolate is creamy and delicious, and I like the mix of milk and white. The peanut butter comes through nicely but the salted aspect was lacking. Despite the praline giving some texture there wasn’t too much distinction between the varying layers making this a very indulgent selector.
I can’t say I’m overly enamoured by these, and their Peanut Butter bar remains triumphant. Don’t get me wrong the Hotel Chocolat Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector is delicious, however there are others I would much rather buy.
