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.

Hotel Chocolat Treacle Tart

It has been a while since I have posted, work life balance is currently out the window which is making it hard to get the blog mojo on. Nonetheless what better way to kick start things than with Hotel Chocolat Treacle Tart chocolates.

Part of their autumnal range, Hotel Chocolat may have answered my banana chocolate prayers with this little beauty, lets find out.  For 6 Banana Bread Selectors it will set you back £3.85, or buy 3 and you save a measly 70p.

Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter Slab

Happy Easter Everyone!! I hope that the Easter Bunny has bought you all lots of goodies. It is only fitting that we have a chocolate review today and why not be a devil and throw in some peanut butter as well! A while back I reviewed Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter Selectors and was left bitterly disappointed at how they had completely missed the peanut butter mark. From there I was intrigued as to whether their Peanut Butter Slab, which is aimed at crunchy peanut butter lovers, would actually hit the spot and more importantly taste like peanut butter.
