Well it wouldn’t be Christmas without chocolate would it? This year we have been checking out some of the lovely chocolates and chocolate related goodies like biscuits and cakes that contain, you’ve guessed it, chocolate. It’s been a tough task, but someone had to do it and we’ve enjoyed being your taste testers.
Cadbury always have a good range of products for Christmas and our favourites were the Tree Decorations and the Advent Calendar. What we tend to do is obviously use the Advent Calendar in the run up to Christmas, but spread the Christmas fun out a little more by eating a tree decoration for each of the twelve days of Christmas. Buy a couple of packs and you can give a few extras out for good behaviour (or as bribes even).
Mars have some products that involve chocolate, but aren’t chocolate bars if that makes sense. There’s the fab Galaxy Treat Cake which would be great for a Christmas party as you’d get quite a few portions out of it and it tastes fantastic. We like the Teasers spread which would be fab as part of a special Christmas breakfast – as you’ve probably guessed it’s based on the Malteasers chocolates and has all the wonderful flavours of one of my favourite sweet treats.
Wouldn’t these Mini Chocolate Crisp Crackers look wonderful on a Christmas table? I like the idea of using them as stocking fillers too. Each box contains 6 crackers with 2 chocolates in each one, so that’s plenty for the table and you could use them as an after dinner treat, while you are waiting for the Christmas pudding.
