Eight Years of Chocolate Blogging & a Valentine’s Day Giveaway #86
Happy Valentine’s Day. Today is of course a very important day for lovers. For me, however, Valentines Day has additional meaning. it’s the day CT and I set off on our year long adventure around the Antipodes and the day we arrived back home. It’s also the day I started my blog, Chocolate Log Blog, as it was then. So to celebrate this love of all things chocolate, I have a box of luscious chocolates from Hotel Chocolat for one lucky chocolate lover – a Valentine’s Day Giveaway.
Now that Chocolate Log Blog has morphed into Tin and Thyme, I don’t do as much chocolate blogging as I used to, but it’s still very much a passion and I create at least one new chocolate recipe a month. I’m also still running the monthly chocolate blogging challenge, We Should Cocoa. Astonishingly, this has been going for over six years now. Where does the time go?
To mark this blogiversay and my enduring love of chocolate, Hotel Chocolat sent me The Valentine’s. This box of heart shaped delights is from their Sleekster range and contains 27 delectable chocolates. Flavours include a fiery hazelnut praline with habanero chilli, salted espresso, honey, prosecco and gin and passion fruit cream. I love them all, but I was most surprised by the buttered rum, which I think might be my new favourite chocolate.
Anyway, this anniversary is a celebration of my readers too. This blog and the recipes I create would not exist if it wasn’t for you. Thank you so much for reading my posts, trying out my recipes and commenting. A special thank you goes to those who have stuck with me through the years – you deserve a medal! So to the giveaway.
The Valentine Sleekster is obviously no longer appropriate after today. Be not disappointed. For my Valentine’s Day Giveaway, I have a splendid Mother’s Day Sleekster to offer instead. A whopping 350g of dark, milk and white chocolates are filled with pralines, caramel, fruity truffles and tipsy ones too. If you want to get organised for Mother’s Day, which falls on the 26th March this year, this box is available at Hotel Chocolat retail outlets or online for £22.50.
