The 10 Best luxury chocolate bars

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

From salted-caramel and award-winning flavours to the latest offering from the queen's chocolatier, these moreish bars are to die for

1. La Molina Nocciolato Gianduja hazelnut dark chocolate

£16.49/250g, selfridges.com

Probably the most you'll ever pay for a chocolate bar, but worth it as it's completely addictive.

2. Artisan du Chocolat Orchid and Orange Blossom Dark Bar

£3.15/45g, artisanduchocolat.com

You won't find a disappointing bar from this chocolatier, which pushes the boundaries of flavours.

3. Ottolenghi Salt Caramel and Chocolate Brittle

£5.85/100g, ottolenghi.co.uk

This bar has only a 14-day shelf life, but the truth is that it won't last anything like that long because it's utterly moreish.

4. Rococo Cardamon White

£4.50/70g, rococochocolates.com

Even top quality white chocolate can taste too sweet, but the aromatic cardamom cuts through the sweet creaminess of this bar.

5. Marou Tien Giang 70%

£5.45/100g, chocolatiers.co.uk

Vietnam is not naturally associated with artisan chocolate, but the country's cocoa beans are attracting chocolatiers such as Marou. This bar is particularly punchy.

6. Chococo Heavenly Honeycomb Bar

£8.50/125g, chococo.co.uk

Chococo crafts chocolates on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. This award-winning bar uses the flavour du jour – honeycomb.

7. Amelia Rope Pale Honey Roasted Pecan Nut & Sea Salt

£9.95/100g, ameliarope.com

Rope's latest bar, for Fortnum & Mason, has pecans roasted in honey on top of single-origin Equadorian milk chocolate with sea salt. Yum.

8. Bettys Cru Sauvage 68% Dark Chocolate Bar

£3.85/50g, bettys.co.uk

This bar is made from a rare variety of cocoa that grows wild in Bolivia. The beans are then slow-roasted to bring out the flavour.

9. Hotel Chocolat St Lucia Island Growers 70% Milk

£7.50/70g, hotelchocolat.com

Hotel Chocolat is one of the few chocolatiers to grow its own cocoa. The results are to die for and this is one of its best bars yet.

10. Prestat Tea Time Frolics

£3.50/85g, prestat.co.uk

This is the queen's chocolatier, making the quintessentially British flavour of Earl Grey in this bar, combined with a twist of lemon in milk chocolate, very apt.
