Celebrate National Chocolate Week!

Divine chocolate recipes and quirky gifts

by Carla Griscti

We just love a big dose of chunky, creamy chocolate here at All About You. Whether it’s wickedly indulgent, champagne truffles or a towering, giant Toblerone, we’ve always got something chocolate-related on the go to help us through the week.

Always partial to a wee celebration, and with National Chocolate Week being absolutely no exception, what better way to indulge in the festivities than with our collection of gorgeous chocolate goodies, recipes and wonderfully quirky chocolate-themed novelty gifts...

For games enthusiasts and chocolate fiends alike, treat yourselves to a friendly game of Scrabble, with edible chocolate letters, or embrace your inner child and get stuck into a fun game of Chocolate Twister, with the reward being a tasty little chocolate treat. For budding property tycoons, there’s also a Belgian chocolate Monopoly set to sink your teeth into.

If you’re simply one to delve into a decadent chocolate dessert, try some of our delightful chocolate after dinner treats. From chocolate roulade with thick, whipped cream or soft and fluffy chocolate cupcakes, to more unusual savoury dishes like roast venison with a chocolate coated crust or chilli con carne with a hint of dark chocolate, try your hand at some mouthwateringly tasty recipes to celebrate cooking with this wonderfully versatile ingredient.

If you don’t have the time (or the enthusiasm) to whip up some chocolate cuinary classics, fret not as there are some great ready-made chocolate buys that do the job just nicely. From dark chocolate pieces with a Tabasco hit, to Montezuma’s dark, rich drinking chocolate, there's something out there to suit all chocolate tastes!

And the piece de resistance, for the discerning dinner party devotee, is this stunning, Vodka Martini cocktail infused with creamy chocolate and a hint of piquant chilli. Serve with some exquisitely rich and indulgent handmade chocolate truffles from Booja-Booja. They’re simply divine.
