Playing with chocolate
As if the countdown excitement wasn’t enough, there are more and more playful creations out there so that you can share some joy with family or friends while indulging in the best-tasting chocolate.
Christmas Piñatas are a great alternative to traditional desserts combining the fun of breaking it up with the surprise of discovering the delicious treasures hidden inside.
If you are in a more constructive mood you can choose to build your own Christmas dessert! It can be a cute chocolate deer that comes in disconnected pieces for you to bring together, or a Christmas tree with its crunchy, crispy, chewy - you name it - but invariably delicious decorations.
Shiny Sparkly Christmas
No matter the format, chocolate creations dress upfor the festive season, either putting on a Christmas outfit with pretty deer, penguin, snowflake ot Santa prints, or going for a fancy make up, which is all about glitter these days. Stay with the elegant bronze, silver, gold, or dare for red, blue, purple, ...
Festive shapes and flavors
As to flavors, next to the all-time classics of orange, champagne and (salted) caramel, more and more winter desserts and drinks are finding their way into the Christmas bonbons and tablets: think gingerbread, mulled wine, apple strudel, pannetone, chai latte, and many more.
Focusing on the visual, the green-red-white combination evokes the cosy and warm feelings and makes a perfect gift. Or the Christmas tree with its lovely pine cones are always a winning way to stand out during the winter months.
