Summertime Chocolates to Chill from Hotel Chocolat COMPETITION (UK only)
Summertiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmeeeee and the livin’ is chilllllllllyyyyyyyyyy….. Chocs are juuuuuuummmmmpiiiiiing and the centres are luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuush…
I know – don’t give up the day job (well, part time day job 😉 )
It’s unusual to actually chill chocolate in the fridge and it’s something I am always telling people to *not do* but in this case Hotel Chocoat have specifically formulated these chocolates to be put in the fridge and eaten cold.
Of course, don’t just take my word for it – Hotel Chocolat says “Pop in the fridge to chill, pop in your mouth to thrill. Chill out with this special summertime selection of exquisitely fruity and tangy truffles like our tangy Passion Fruit Bombe our Mojito with zippy lime, frisky mint and a tingling shot of rum. These recipes are even better served after being chilled in the fridge for 30 minutes. Perfect for sharing on endless summer afternoons with friends, or for lifting up even the cloudiest summer day.”
Sharing? Sharing with me and me and of course me? Sure! I can dig that! Sharing with other people… weeeellll…
I’m a bit Hotel Chocolat fan as most of you know. It’s my happy place and as I write this I am enjoying some 40% milk chocolate covered caramelised salted caramel almonds 😀
But Hotel Chocolat have created 3 different collections for you to try if you’d like to try chilly chocs:
Mocktails to Chill – £10 – Refreshingly fruity mocktail chocolates with tangy real fruit flavours. Inside, you’ll find 16 chocolates in four different recipes: Spiced Pineapple Punch, Peach Iced Tea, Virgin Mojito and Wild Strawberry Daiquiri. Our mocktail chocolates make delicious party pieces at room temperature, but they’re even better if you play it cool. Just chill them for 30 minutes and serve up a unique summertime chocolate treat!
Not a booze-er like me? Have a try of these: Fruit Bombes to Chill – £9 – Our finest fruit bombes in five flavours. Blackcurrant, lime, lemon, cherry and passion fruit chocs to chill with the perfect contrast of real fruit tang and smooth chocolate, best served after chilling for at least 30 minutes. Perfect for sharing on long-shadowed summer afternoons. Pop in the fridge, then pop in your mouth

My favourite Hotel Chocolate is the Eton Mess Slab. It is a Thick slab of Strawberry & Vanilla Chocolate With Meringue & Biscuit pieces. It’s creamy & Crunchy at the same time.
the salted dark soft caramel they are yummy and just melt in your mouth
My favourite type of Hotel Chocolat is the slabs 🙂 Eton mess is amazing 🙂
I regularly buy fromHotel Chocolat as we have a store in Newcastle and at the Metro Centre – so not far from me! One of my favourite buys is their Dizzy Pralines Selector as I adore praline and these ones are the smoothest, silkiest and tastiest I have ever tried before (and I have tried a fair few!)
At the moment I am loving Hotel Chocolat’s Supermilk selector slabs – creamy milk chocolate with an intense taste.
My favourite Hotel Chocolate chocolate is the almond marzipans from the Sleekster milk collection- I love all marzipan chocolate
salted dark soft caramel they are fantastic and I could eat it till the cows come home
the Rocky Road Giant 500g Slab is my favourite; it`s large and delicious but wouldnt last long with me!
My favourite is the Dizzy Pralines Selector which is a nice silky smooth hazelnut praline and delicious
WE always buy the extra thick eggs for Easter i love the truffles you get inside. expensive but yummy!
I love their Classic Champagne Truffles, this is the best truffle I have ever tried
I like the hotel chocolat drinking chocolate. It is great to drink on a winters evening infront of the fire. It has a real taste of chocolate to it and is so indulgent
Classic Champagne Truffles are my favorite as the flavour is devine!
I love their caramel chocolate, particularly the Caramel and Co mini slabs.
My absolute fave are the egglets they do at Easter!
Florentine Isabelle – That was definitely my favourite out of the one’s left over that my wife didn’t eat from an H box! So I didn’t have many to choose from….
I adore the Billionaire’s Shortbread – a gorgeous mix of chocolate, caramel and biscuit which isn’t too sweet, but is suprisingly filling, meaning I don’t end up gorging myself to the point of feeling ill (which is my usual poison with chocolate), but can put the packet away satisfied knowing that I have another treat left for later in the week
Classic Champagne Truffles are divine and I love to spoil myself in the bath with a little luxury and decadence x
The H-Box Dark Selection looks so mouth watering, especially the Pistachio Praline and the Champagne Truffle.
I love the Mocktails to Chill, particularly the Spiced Pineapple Punch, as they are so smooth and fruity.
I love the Rocky Road Giant slab as it’s very decadent & moreish. I’m planning to buy one as a housewarming present for my brother who’s first house is on Rocky Road in Belfast!
They made these chocolate shortbread cookies which I can’t find on their website anymore. I got them as a birthday gift last year. They were amazing. I want one right now. I’m sad I’m not having one right now. I came to this competition to be happy but now I’m sad I don’t have this cookie.
Also, pretty much every Rabot dark chocolate bar they do. I’m especially fond of whoever writes the copy for the bars.
I love the Billionaire’s Shortbread because it has everything: Smooth chocolate, creamy filling and a delicious shortbread crunch on the top.
Supermilk Hazelnut Slab Selector, the smoothness of the chocolate is a whole new chocolate experience for my mouth! The smoothness and creaminess is one I’ve never experienced before and with the hazelnut texture it’s just the perfect combo and perfectly moreish!
My favourite is the gin truffle – perfect mix of chocolate and booze
I love the slabs that hotel chocolat do. The different flavours they come in are sooo yummy, especially the eton mess one. I wish I could afford to buy them more often! 😉
I’m a big fan of their Selector chocolates, my favourite is the Blackcurrant Selector. Way not enough blackcurrant and chocolate combinations out there.
i love their champagne truffles they are just so delicious
I love the white chocolate and mint slabs. It is unusual to see mint with white chocolate. They are a great alternative to original after dinner mints. They are also not too sweet. I buy them when I go to the Hotel Chocolat shop in the Metro Centre.
Salted caramel chocolate is by far the best combination of chocolate yum yum!!!
I love the Large Chocolate Dipping Adventure; it’s wonderful for sharing and has a mixture of amazing flavours & textures. Also makes a lovely gift
The Salted caramel chocolates just melt in my mouth as I lick my lips.
I’m a sucker for Hotel Chocolat salted caramels. They do so many other delicious chocolates, but that would always be my first choice.
Winning chocolates from you seems to the the only way I manage to get any these days, so crossing fingers.
*hahaha* I wonder if you have a deal with Rafflecopter or something 😉 But I wish you luck!
I love chocolate covered nuts becuase they are nutty like me!

I love the drinking chocolate tastes amazing and helps me sleep I think yum
I treated myself to one of the Extra Thick Eggs a couple of years ago, it wazs fantastic and felt like it lasted me ages.
I’ve had a couple of the ostrich eggs, they are just divine so indulgent, The chocolate on the egg is super thick and has a great crunch to the bite..

I love them all but my favourite is the salted dark soft caramel which is so good I cannot think of anything else now!
i like the Mojito Selector as you can really taste the rum and lime and imagine you are on a tropical beach
Ooh my favourites are the Chocolate Brownies! I got completely addicted to them when they were Taste of the Month a few months ago – found myself unable to walk past Hotel Chocolat without ending up inside by the brownies! They are so lovely and velvety but with the crunch and added texture of the nuts. And a lovely flavour – just divine.
I always go for the slabs – all of them are delicious so it doesn’t matter which one!!
My absolute favourite chocolate from hotel chocolates is the Caramel Cappucino Slab, I’m a huge coffee fan!
What a great giveaway, how I do love Hotel Chocolat, my favourites would have to be the slabs there’s a beautiful vanilla white chocolate and raspberry one that I tend to treat myself to.
I love the Champagne Truffles, but I have to say that Hotel Chocolat chocolate is one of my favourites
I’m completely in love with the Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Puddles. But then, I love just about ALL their chocolates!

I love Hotel Chocolat’s champagne truffles and their rum ones (can’t think of the name … but they’re yummy!) … but then again most of their chocolates are yummy! 😉
Hotel Chocolat Salted Caramel Drinking Chocolate feels very decadent and tastes just delicious, the layers of sweet and salty and I want to say malty…….perfection in a mug.
I love the Hotel Chocolat Fruit Bombes, I’ve only had them as a gift but they were delish! Also fond of the Cocoa Gin (not strictly chocolate though) 🙂
Mousse au Chocolat, yummy, melt in the mouth, little balls of deliciousness.
I absolutely ADORE Hotel Chocolat’s Gianduja bombes – the smoothest hazelnut praline you can imagine, and even better, made with dark chocolate!
The Billionaire’s Shortbread Giant Slab is delicious, it’s hard not to eat it all in one sitting
Eton Mess Selector – I like mousse, white chocolate and meringue. What is there not to like when you have these different things together!
I’d be happy to live on nothing but champagne truffles…. unhealthy…. but happy!
