From 21 January 2013 Chokablok will be selling their Chokablok Chocolate Love Hearts in Tescos. Chokablok have a range of lovely chocolatey things and this is their new Valentine’s Day range.
The Rocky Road of Love Heart is perfect treat for any rocky road lovers. It has a chunky,thick, chocolate heart base with generous handfuls of pretty, pink and white mini marshmallows, little dark chocolate heart confetti scattered over and crunchy shortcake biscuit to finish.
If your loved one prefers white chocolate to milk chocolate, then the Cookie Crumb Mon-star Love Heart is the one to choose for them. Once again there’s a good, thick chocolate love heart as the core, but this time it’s made from smooth, creamy, white chocolate. Then there are the shortcake cookie pieces swirled into the mix to add texture, sweetness and crunch. To finish off there’s a generous dusting of tiny, milk chocolate hearts.
The Chokablok Chocolate Love Hearts both gone down very well in our household. My son is a rocky road connoisseur and loves Chokablok’s rocky road and the white chocolate heart is perfect for those that love creamy white chocolate.
I’m a sucker for a good Christmas cake. I am usually a bit of a cheap skate and I tend to buy mine in the sales after Christmas. To be honest we wouldn’t get around to eating it till then anyway with all the Christmas goodies in the house. There’s something about a home made one and if my cake decorating skills were up to it I would make my own. Sadly though the only bit I feel I could succeed with is the underlying fruit cake. Maybe one day I’ll feel confident enough to try with the icing. This cake was made by my sister in law’s sister and I think it looks fantastic.
An everyday luxury for me is a good cup of tea. It has to be one made with a good quality tea. My current favourite is Clipper tea. I like my tea to be what I would term medium strength: not very weak, but not a ‘so strong the spoon stands up in it’ cuppa either. I like a good splash of milk, but again I don’t like my tea nearly black and I find overly milky tea even worse.
I need a cup of tea to get me going in the morning and sometimes that’s all I have or need all day. On a bad day (or an especially early morning) I need two cups to set me up for the day. I also love a proper cuppa after a long journey or a busy day out of the house. It’s a great drink to chat to friends over too. The rest of the (day) time I tend to drink either herbal or fruit teas, but there are times when nothing but a real cup of tea will do.
Are you a tea drinker too? How do you like your cup?
