This week is National Chocolate Week, a celebration of all things chocolatey, culminating in The Chocolate Show at London's Olympia.
To celebrate, Guylian sent me some delicious Belgian chocolates to enjoy. The iconic shaped seahorses and shells have a marbled chocolate coating encasing a rich hazelnut praline.
Guylian Seahorses are my daughter Kizzy's favourite boxed chocolate so she was delighted to be my chief chocolate tester. She loves the shapes, she loves the mix of two types of chocolate and she loves the smooth, nutty centre. She can do some serious damage to a box of Guylian. I did intend to use the chocolates in a recipe, maybe a Guylian Brownie. But Kizzy had other ideas and approached the chocolates as a purist, wanting to eat them just as they are.
Each Guylian chocolate is beautifully crafted and looks quite exquisite. They taste lovely with the signature roasted hazelnut praline filling and the creamy marbled Belgian chocolate coating. The milk and white and dark and white chocolate marbling looks really effective. Guylian have introduced caramel, crunchy biscuit, vanilla and milk truffle flavours, giving more choice to the range.
The Guylian Seahorses come in 2, 4, 16 and 32 piece boxes. They are perfect for gifting, or for treating yourself! So why not enjoy some delicious Guylian chocolates this week...after all it is National Chocolate Week!
