Welcome to Chocolate and Christmas-is-Coming Theme Week. Yes, I know it's early; but advanced planning for the holidays means you could be eating some great chocolates a month or two from now.
Today I opened a box of Christmas holiday chocolates from UK-based Hotel Chocolat (London), and unwrapped the company's "Ultimate Advent Calendar - Truffles for Two" offering. This attractively packaged box, designed for grown-up consumers, looks like a winner. Each day/window opened on the calendar yields not one, but two chocolate truffles. So, if you're a kind-hearted person who shares chocolate with loved ones, this is perfect. And for the rest of you -- and you know who you are -- there are two pieces just for you.

Today's two truffles, hidden behind Day #1 flap, were hazelnut-flavored House Milk Pralines I believe. Whether you start with #1 and count up to 24, or count down (from 24 to 1), you'll be able to enjoy flavors such as: Liquid Caramel, Gingerbread, Orange Liqueur, Rum Liquid Caramel, and Mousse au Chocolat. 

Thank you to Hotel Chocolat for the chance to evaluate these holiday chocolates. For those in the U.S., more information can be found at
