Hotel Chocolat Editions Pink Champagne Truffles

Oh my, I gave into temptation (doesn’t take much when its chocolate *giggle*) and slipped a pink champagne truffle into my mouth – just to try you understand! It was one of the most amazing experiences with chocolate I’ve ever had, coming from she who could eat chocolate for England. My dearest friend Maureen asked had I ever tasted this brand of chocolate before when she found out I had won. She did say I’d be in for a treat of my life and boy was she so right! The 101 Best Loved Chocolate Recipes Book is jammed packed with decedent delights, from well known chefs to food writers. It breaks down into sections of breakfast, elevenses, al a carte, teatime, desserts and lounge bar for recipes. I know one thing; I’ll be creating some of their recipes from this book very soon! You will find a few of thier recipes on this [link]

Many thanks to Hotel Chocolat for supplying such a great prize!
