Colossal Christmas Countdown:
52 Days Until Christmas!
In my house, the holidays are all about bringing together family and friends and celebrating the year and each other with wonderful food and treats. I have to admit that one of my guilty pleasures has to be chocolate, and I try and find a way to incorporate chocolate into every holiday dessert I serve.
That's why I am extremely happy to have found a delectable new source for high-quality chocolate and unique desserts called Hotel Chocolat. I have always wanted to try a fondue-style dessert, but just never got around to preparing what was needed. Thankfully, Hotel Chocolat made it super simple for me by allowing me to sample their Large Dipping Adventure...and what an adventure it was!
The Large Dipping Adventure is a complete delight for your senses and comes complete with a variety of goodies to dip as well as four different dipping sauces. Just look at everything that was included with this set:
- Pot of White Chocolate
- Pot of 40% Milk Chocolate
- Pot of 74% Dark Chocolate
- Pot of Caramel
- Chocolate-Coated Brazil Nuts
- Fudge Squares
- Gianduja Cubes
- Sesame Waffles
- Sea Salt Paper Waffles
- Six Pairs of Bamboo Tongs
Now that's a feast for your palette! I couldn't wait to get started sampling all of the marvelous items included in the Large Dipping Adventure. Preparing everything couldn't have been easier. All that was needed was to microwave the individual pots between 2 minutes to 3 minutes, depending on your microwave's wattage.
Since I wasn't completely sure how strong my microwave was, I simply started on the highest recommended wattage and increased the cooking time until the chocolate was nice and melted. Next, you stirred the pots and allowed them to sit for 2 minutes before diving in!
I have to admit that my favorite things to dip were all sweet, like the marshmallows, fudge and Brazil nuts. I also liked the Sesame and Sea Salt Paper Waffles, which gave the sauces a new twist and a different flavor. Once my husband and I started dipping, the adventure truly began and we got out some apple slices, orange wedges and strawberries and dipped away. I LOVE chocolate covered strawberries and found that the white chocolate strawberries were absolutely divine!
If you are looking for a fun and highly social dessert to serve during the holidays, then I highly recommend the Large Dipping Adventure from Hotel Chocolat. There are plenty of goodies for six people to dine on, but don't be surprised if just two people could wipe this tray out too, like my husband and I did!
I think that this would be a perfect gift for anyone who loves to entertain or who has a love affair with chocolate. Make sure to have plenty of fruit, pretzels, cookies, brownies and nuts on hand too and see where your dipping adventure takes you!
