Probably the most you'll ever pay for a chocolate bar, but worth it as it's completely addictive.
You won't find a disappointing bar from this chocolatier, which pushes the boundaries of flavours.
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.
Even top quality white chocolate can taste too sweet, but the aromatic cardamom cuts through the sweet creaminess of this bar.
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.
Chococo crafts chocolates on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. This award-winning bar uses the flavour du jour – honeycomb.
Rope's latest bar, for Fortnum & Mason, has pecans roasted in honey on top of single-origin Equadorian milk chocolate with sea salt. Yum.
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.
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.
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.
