I was due to write this post later this week until Mr Lay the table informed me that he’d wiped the camera memory and had therefore lost all the photos for the other post I was going to write. He is currently in the dog house! Luckily I still have lovely stuff to write about! On Thursday I will be on BBC Radio Leeds with the lovely Lynn from Clandestine Cake Club and My Secret Team Room, so if you have a chance, please listen in from around 9am I think! It’s all about National Cake Week so please bake a cake and donate some money to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
It’s always nice to get the gift of chocolates but it’s really super lucky to receive Lucky’s chocolates.
Lucky’s chocolates are like a halfway house between chocolate and cake. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the “Mad Hatter” chocolates I was sent to review are brownie based inside, mixed with a special filling then cased in chocolate.
Look how beautiful the box is! There’s a little peep hole to let you have a sneak peek and see the surprise inside…
There’s dark, milk and white chocolates in my selection with names like “Salty Insanity” (a salted caramel chocolate), “Coco rush” (creamy coconut filling) and “Hurry Bunny” (blueberry compote). Oh, I didn’t mention it before but they’re all covered Valrhona chocolate, it’s like totes the best quality chocolate. And they’re hand made too (I do love a bit of handicraft).
They are truly some of the most unique chocolates I’ve come across. They taste divine too – honestly I had a job to keep a hold of them at work when they arrived and was sure I wouldn’t have enough to photograph! I think my favourite was the Looney Raspberry – raspberry and pistachio pieces. The only problem was I had to keep checking on the website to find out what each one had in them as there was no information card inside!
These are luxury chocolates and so they do come with a luxury price tag – the Mad Hatter 12 piece box is priced at £35 but there is free delivery. I definitely think I’d order a few of these for Christmas gifts because they’re so unusual. Who knows, maybe Mr Lay the table might get one in his stocking!
