Chocolates by post
Chococo Dorset sea salt caramel chocolates, £12
Looking for a crowd-pleasing chocolate gift? These decadent salted caramel chocolates from Chococo are guaranteed to be a hit. The smooth liquid caramel centre pairs beautifully with the intense dark chocolate with a pleasant salty kick. Made with local ingredients in West Dorset, each chocolate gem is hand decorated with cocoa butter speckles. We also love the honeycomb chocolates (£12) made with 45% Venezuelan milk chocolate and crunchy local Dorset honeycomb. Can’t decide on a flavour? Go with the classic selection box (£12) for everything from boozy to citrus truffles. Chococo’s truffles are always top-notch with incredible attention to detail- you can’t go wrong.
Booja-Booja chocolate truffles selection, £9.99
Fan-favourite chocolate brand Booja-Booja offers a selection of its classic vegan-friendly truffles for just under £10. The squares of organic dark chocolate are full of rich flavours, including roasted hazelnut, gooey salted caramel, toasted almond, stem ginger, tangy rhubarb, and bold Mexican coffee. The selection includes 16 truffles, each rolled in bitter cocoa powder to offset the sweet ganache centres. We think this selection is fantastic value for money.
Hotel Chocolat The Everything Sleekster, £22.95
A classic hit among chocolate lovers, The Everything Sleekster from Hotel Chocolat provides a great selection for a range of preferences. The name really befits the product, as there really is a bit of everything. Flavours range from caramel cheesecake and Eton mess, to raspberry smoothie, peanut butter, billionaire’s shortbread, carrot cake, and more. The set includes 27 truffles made with white, milk and dark chocolates. It’s a good choice for those who prefer variety in their chocolate selection.
Ferrero Rocher chocolate set box, £11
Who wouldn’t love opening a box of Ferrero Rocher on their birthday? This giant gift set is any chocolate lover’s dream, as it’s packed with 42 truffles, all wrapped in the iconic gold foil with the signature logo on top. Crunchy hazelnuts sit in the centre of a creamy filling, all wrapped in crispy wafer and milk chocolate. With this many truffles, it’s big enough to share with loved ones during a special celebration together.
Love Cocoa vegan chocolate library gift box, £22.50
Treat the vegan in your life to this luxurious chocolate bar selection. Love Cocoa makes high-quality dark chocolate with sustainability in mind. The packaging is completely plastic free and a tree is planted for every chocolate bar sold. This colourful five bar selection includes its Maldon sea salt 70%, gin & tonic 71%, English mint 71%, salted almond 70% and Peruvian 70% varieties.
Charbonnel et Walker pink champagne truffles, £15
Booze lovers will enjoy these luxurious truffles infused with a warming alcoholic kick and a subtle hint of strawberry. These iconic treats are a cult classic for a reason – the rich and creamy ganache centre is covered in a white chocolate shell, then rolled in icing sugar for an extra special touch. If champagne isn’t for you, try another one of Charbonnel et Walker’s famous flavours, such as dark sea salt caramel or Sipsmith gin.
Green & Black’s organic tasting collection, £12.99
If you’re not keen on truffles, these mini chocolate bars make a great alternative. This tasting selection provides a great chance to sample the extensive range of flavours offered by classic chocolate brand Green & Black’s. Treat your loved one to a variety of flavours, including toffee, ginger, almond, sea salt and hazelnut & currant. We particularly love the butterscotch flavour, which is full of toasty, sweet notes. The gift box includes a larger dark chocolate bar, tasting notes, and recipes to use your chocolate.
Lindt Lindor milk chocolate salted caramel chocolate gift box, £4.99
The newest flavour in the Lindor range, these salted caramel truffles have proven to be a hit among chocolate lovers. These are definitely on the sweeter side, but the subtle salty notes really bring out the flavour of the creamy milk chocolate. Perfect for just about any occasion, Lindor truffles come in a variety of flavours. If salted caramel isn’t your thing, try hazelnut, coconut or mint.
Tony’s Chocolonely six pack, £26
You can’t go wrong with this beloved chocolate brand, offering a six bar selection with something for everyone. It’s a great treat for chocolate lovers as the bars are hefty with large portions. The gift set contains one of each flavour- milk chocolate, milk caramel sea salt, milk almond honey nougat, dark almond sea salt, milk hazelnut and extra dark.
