Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake

Yes it is another round of Hotel Chocolate delights. The reason for the visit at the weekend was purely for gift purposes only. However after perusing the Selector section and spying the Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake, I knew they were coming home with me.  Usually the PB & J combo is something that is given a miss.

Nonetheless what better way to kick start things than with Hotel Chocolat Treacle Tart chocolates. Hotel Chocolat does some imaginative concoctions as well as giving classic combinations a little twist.
