Hotel Chocolat Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector

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!

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.

Coming with 5 snack sized flapjacks these are available in most supermarkets. I purchased these from Ocado for a solid £1.00,…
