Hotel Chocolat kindly sent me a box of their Christmas Dark Chocolate selection to try, so I brought them along on a weekend with friends to work our way through all of them. I'm probably a bit biased since I love dark chocolates, but seven of us greedily ate the entire thing in two days. There were a lot of sounds of enjoyment, particularly in relation to the rum and single malt flavored chocolates. Apparently they're very lovely with a drop of Talisker, so my whisky-loving friends tell me. My favorite was the one with a gooey salted caramel center. I thought the chilli chocolates could have been a bit more fiery, but they might be good for someone who was just being introduced to the brilliant combo of spice and chocolate. I used to pick up Hotel Chocolat products as Christmas presents for people at work - they're packaged nicely and always seemed to go over well, so it was fun to finally try some myself.
