Advent Calendar

Happy December 1st everyone. For many today means starting your chocolate advent calendar for the countdown to Christmas. Yes, I still have a chocolate advent calendar!

This year John surprised me with a fancy Prestat one. (When I say surprise I mean I mentioned many times the one I wanted and he lovingly remembered and ordered it online for me.) (When I say remember I mean I wasn’t going to let him forget the most beautiful advent calendar I have ever seen while visiting the Harrods food hall last Christmas.)

Prestat chocolates are divine they are “By Appointment to her Majesty the Queen Purveyors of Chocolate”, they are also the chocolates that Roald Dahl preferred…

Today’s chocolate was Orange ad Frankincense. The description on the back of the box was just as yummy sounding a the real thing. “Sweet orange oil combined with aromatic frankincense infusing butter, cream and chocolate filling a velvety smooth milk chocolate truffle shell”.

I kind of feel bad because whilst John’s knitted Cadburys calendar does look cute the chocolates look sad in comparison. Take a look…

Maybe I’ll share one with John as a thank you…maybe.
