Gifts for chocoholics

By  |  0 Comments

I’ve always loved M&S chocolates, even more so than Thorntons.  Maybe it’s because I used to work there and had access to all the different treats!  Every year they’ve always got a great selection of chocolate Christmas gifts and this year is no exception.

Belgian Chocolate Collection  £20

(plus reuse as makeup drawers …two gifts for the price of one!)

My current favourite from their selection is the perfect small gift for a makeup lover (yes!)  because the fabulous little drawers can be converted to a makeup stash!  I was really excited to finish the chocolates, Classic Belgian chocolates with coffee mousse, crispy praline, raspberry truffle and sicilian lemon type fillings and use the empty drawers for mascaras, lipsticks and brushes (as they are nice and long)  Here’s my demonstration below;







The Collection of Exceptional Characters ~ £15

The “Exceptional Characters” box is amazing, so beautifully presented and imaginatively named after characters in Pride & Prejudice!  This means you can pop Mr Darcy in your mouth 😉 and slowly let him him melt.

Although I was surprised at the choice of filling for Mr Darcy…coffee mousse covered in white chocolate.  I would have expected him to be dark, mysterious chocolate on the outside with a warm and passionate filling inside!  (If you were to make Mr Darcy as a chocolate…how would you envisage him?)  The quality of ingredients in this one is high end…star anise, salted macadamia and dulce de leche.

Available from all good Marks and Spencer stores nationwide.
