I don't know about the rest of you dairy-free people out there, but I've really struggled to find decent dairy-free chocolate. Everything I've tried so far has been a bit rubbish (soya white chocolate buttons I'm looking at you) and nothing has given that sweet chocolately satisfaction. But then in swooped Hotel Chocolat and now that's all changed.
First of all let's touch on the obvious...HOW CUTE IS THAT BUNNY! I almost don't have the heart to eat it...almost.
So what's in this chocolate? Well to quote Hotel Chocolat...
"Milk-Free Milk gives all the pleasure of milk chocolate, minus the dairy. 56% pure cocoa combines with the finest Sicilian almond creaminess to create decadent chocolate with a mellow, lingering flavour. Containing just 24% sugar, Milk-Free Milk is also a high-cocoa, low-sugar option, so it only takes a small portion to satisfy your chocolate craving"
Vicar of Dibley summarising nicely my thoughts on the Hotel Chocolat Milk-Free collection...
The chocolate is divine. If you are familiar with the quality of Hotel Chocolat's 'normal' chocolate then that is exactly what you can expect from their dairy-free range. Creamy, rich, delicious chocolate all wrapped up in the classic and classy Hotel Chocolat packaging. Oh and it's suitable for vegans too. Dreamy.
They have an impressive range. I went for their biggest egg (no surprise there...) the 'Milk-Free Milk Scrambled Egg'. As pictured, this is a 150g hollow egg which comes with 6 'Nutty Fruitcases' aka chocolate bites with hazelnuts and raisins. This comes in at £15.
I also couldn't resist their 'Milk-Free Bunny Lick' which is a solid chocolate lolly. This chocolate cuteness cost £1.95 and I want another one already.
If you're dodging dairy this Easter I seriously suggest you pay Hotel Chocolat a visit, or make someone's day and gift them a chocolate Bunny!
