The 10 Best boxes of chocolates
Aim higher than Roses this Christmas. We’ve got perfect pralines and tempting truffles for chocoholics to enjoy...
These are actually 12 pieces of chocolate-covered ginger, and they are light on the palate, which makes them ideal as a post-prandial treat.
Booja Booja is an ethical brand with a distinctly airy-fairy ethos – but my goodness it knows how to make chocolate truffles.
You used only to be able to find Allsop's chocs in smart restaurants, but now you can get the crazy-flavoured chocolates online.
This box is huge, inexpensive and surprisingly good. The caramel fleur de sel is very fine indeed.
There is something special about Godiva chocolates. They melt in your mouth to create tongue-coating slicks of loveliness.
Geranium creams, almond marzipans, passion fruit pate, cream toffee – this box is quite the polymath. Not one bum note in 24 chocolates.
The chef has teamed up with chocolatiers Melt to create a lovely little box with some witty and surprising flavours – the cider brandy is a particular joy.
The chocolates from here are worth just about any price Gorvett and Stone wants to charge. But, as it is, the 12-piece mixed box is remarkably good value.
The purveyors of all things sweet and lovely has come up trumps with this 12-piece box. .The cru savage truffles are dainty, but they have a bitter bite to them.
You can get whacking great boxes here – but we find the mini Les Attentions boxes more intimate.
