I love Hotel Chocolat slabs. Not only are they delicious chunks of yumminess, but you also get enough to feed a small planet for approximately five years.
Luckily, the mini slabs are equally delicious, but much more manageable. I doubt they would even feed a medium-sized city for a week. That’s how small they are. Comparatively speaking.
As you can see, the box contains four individually wrapped slabs, each with a Christmassy design and different combinations of white, milk and dark chocolate. In no particular order, we have:
“74% dark chocolate with an iconic milk chocolate bell”
These slabs are 100g each, so there’s quite a bit of dark chocolate (which demands to be eaten slowly) to get through here before you reach the milk chocolate bell – and unfortunately, I’ve not quite made it as far as the milk chocolate yet! I am sure it’s very good though… the dark chocolate is!
“White chocolate holly leaves on a bed of milk chocolate”
Not much white chocolate in this one – the sprig of holly makes it look pretty but doesn’t add a lot to what is otherwise a solid milk chocolate slab.
“A glossy milk chocolate bauble set in to a swirling white and milk chocolate fusion”
Exactly as described – not sure how they make the bauble glossy (I’m guessing it’s some kind of magic), but it does appear to be shinier than the rest of the slab. There was a lot of white chocolate in this one, making it very creamy but also very sweet.
“Creamy, cinnamon spiced white chocolate swirdled with mellow 40% cocoa milk chocolate”
This is certainly the most interesting of the bunch, and you can smell the cinnamon the moment you open the wrapper. The cinnamon-spiced part is much softer than the milk chocolate and the whole thing is deliciously creamy and moreish.
Overall, a nice mix of Christmassy themed chocs with something for everyone, but for me it’s the cinnamon slab that stands out. The quality of all the slabs is great, but it’s nothing new. I’d really like to see one of these Peepster boxes where every slab was as interesting as the cinnamon slab.
