My Christmas Chocolate Treats

by Val Reynolds

Divine chocolateWe love chocolate. Not the sweet, cloying stuff you can buy in big bars, made using all kinds of ingredients and added chemicals.

Oh no. We love dark, dark chocolate often referred to by is percentage cocoa solids. One such is the Divine 70% Dark Chocolate with Ginger and Orange. Suitable for vegetarians and carrying the Kosher mark, it is available in Sainsburys nationwide and online £1.69.

Divine chocolate is only made with the best Fairtrade cocoa beans from Kuapa Kokoo, a coopertive of smallholder farmers in Ghana. Many of you will know all about Divine chocolate, but have you noticed the brand new Christmas gift boxes – dark chocolate disks with mint, and dark chocolate with raspberry.Divine gift sets

The raspberry taste is really fantastic, the aroma is enticing and the taste confirms your wise decision to eat it!

All the chocolate is free from artificial flavourings, preservatives and colourings.

Available from Waitrose, Booths, Liberty of London and Oxfam. RRP £4.50

Divine Chocolate barsThe other Divine chocolate allowed in the house – not much is because we just eat it until it has gone and then we feel rather guilty – is the 70% Dark Chocolate Covered Salted Fudge. This is a serious grown-up fudge, you experience a mouthful of delightful textures and tastes. Like no other fudge we have ever come across, we will have a secret stock … Only offered to those who really appreciate unusual, top quality confectionary!

Read all about the Divine range on their website where you will find recipes for cooking with chocolate … They have a shop on line as well.
