A box of chocolate for Valentine’s Day is something of a no-brainer, but I think it’s safe to say that Charbonnel et Walker have completely blown typical chocolates out of the window with their stunning new Fine Milk & Dark Chocolate Heart which has been released just in time for Valentines.
Coming wrapped in a beautiful ivory satin ribbon, the box of chocolates is an absolute treat to unwrap, and it has to be the prettiest choice I’ve come across!
Underneath the mounds of ribbon is the most glorious of illustrations by Queen’s Scholar Kerry Lemon. Her specially-commissioned peacock sweeps over the top of the box, referencing Victorian courting traditions, whilst it’s little crown is a subtle reference to Charbonnel’s Royal Warrant.
Like all good boxes of chocolates, tucked inside the lid is a little menu of the goodies inside. Charbonnel’s is a stunning gold and ivory confection which is the loveliest way to ponder over which chocolates to select!
Inside is every chocolate lover’s dream! Tucked snugly into little compartments is a rather decadent selection of the brand’s truffles.
There are flavours to suit everyone – from gloriously rich and boozy to light and fruity, one of the truffles is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee, or a sweet way to end a meal.
Inside there’s a great balance of milk and dark chocolate,and getting to select them from such a stunning box is such a wonderful way to celebrate Valentines Day!
The special edition peacock-adorned boxes are available in a selection of Charbonnel et Walker’s chocolates, so if you would prefer to feast only on Champagne or Salted Caramel truffles, they’ve got you covered!
Charbonnel et Walker’s Peacock Fine Milk and Dark Red Heart is priced at £30 and is available here
