Christmas chocolates you’ll want to keep for yourself

There’s something exotic about the word bonbon, for me it conjures up Juliette Binoche in the film Chocolat, who uses chocolate to inspire and intrigue her customers in a magical way. Bake Off Professional finalist, Bharat Chandegra has nailed real  life bonbons which are delicately flavoured to complement the seasons.

Born in Birmingham Soko is chocolaterie –  patisserie which fuses the best of both skills resulting in a range of artisan chocolates which are perfect for sharing.

Famous for its “waterfall” chocolate, each delicious segment is enrobed in a thick coating, whilst inside you are treated to a range of salted caramel, strawberry cheesecake, hazelnut and almond praline or Madagascan vanilla. Or order the Advent calendar which will make the oldest kid go gaga over the  Black Forest, mince pie, mandarin caramel, almond and hazelnut praline, spiced caramel, marshmallow, and chestnut flavoured treats behind the Christmas doors.

Or if you’re looking for something unique for someone special, the Golden Hazelnut Rocher is a smooth rich chocolate ganache with a whole hazelnut in the centre coated in a gold edible dust.

Soko’s Christmas artisan bon bon selection, features six contemporary flavours and is available in boxes of 12 (£16) or 24 (£28).
