These @paul_a_young sourdough, butter and sea salt #chocolatetruffles are utterly delightful. Made with @guittardchocolate and brought to the #guittard150 celebration in #london🇬🇧 these delightful chocolates had the sourdough crumb on the outside, encased in chocolate keeping them perfectly crunchy. The ganache filling was perfect as you would expect from Paul - the perfect celebration chocolate. Last time I was in they were sold out so if you do get the chance to grab some, absolutely do! What’s your favourite truffle? . . . #chocolatelover #chocaholic #darkchocolate #chocolatelovers #instachoco #chocolateaddict #ilovechocolate #chocolateporn #chocolateheaven #guittardchocolate #paulayoung #paulayoungchocolates #chocolateporn #ilovechristmas #ilovetruffles #chocolateheaven #chocolateblogger #chocolate🍫 #chocolateganache

Beautiful @pierremarcolini desserts in their Marylebone shop. I very much enjoyed the wrong cake they selected for me (seriously - I was quite specific! What is it with PM shops and staff having a hate on for me?) as did my friend! . There are some amazing new products in shop today so why not head on over and caramel up your life? . What is your favourite caramel concoction? . . . #chocolate🍫 #caramelsauce #caramelcake #pierremarcolini #chocolatecakes #chocolatedream #ilovechocolate #chocolatepom #chocolatelover #chocolatelove #chocolatelovers #chocolatedessert #chocolove #chocoholic #chocolatier #caramelbeurresalé

#brownies made from @askinosie chocolate that bloomed when my wine fridge broke. Absolutely gorgeous and so easy to make! . Melt 400g choc and 100g butter together in a ban marie. While that is going, beat 350g brown sugar with 200g of softened butter. Once creamed together, add one at a time 5 eggs and beat until lightly incorporated. Then add a tablespoon of vanilla bean paste and beat until fully blended. Once the chocolate and butter are cool, beat the chocolate into the sugar mix then add 200g plain flour with a teaspoon of salt and fold together. Pour into a lined baking tin, tap out air bubbles and bake at 160C for 30min. . Have you baked anything chocolatey or fun for the long weekend? (In the UK - might not be the same elsewhere) . #foodideas #foodinspiration #simplefood #simplefoods #epicurious #foodblog #foodbloggers #londonfoodie #foodinspiration #foodinstagram #chocolatelover #chocaholic #darkchocolate #chocolatelovers #instachoco #chocolateaddict #chocolateporn #chocolateheaven #chocolateheaven🍫 #chocolateheaven#recipeshare #chocolaterecipes #brownierecipe #browniebatter #brownies #bakingtime #bakingfun

This is probably the world’s best #prosecco with probably the best flavour I’ve ever experienced. I’d like to fly over and bring back a few cases because it is absolutely worth it. If you want to taste the world’s best #prosecco🍾 you’ll need to buy it direct from the winery. It’s not the cheapest but it is the best! . . #bestprosecco #proseccotime #sfrisowinery #bubbles #sparklingwine #proseccopop #proseccosuperiore #iloveprosecco #doc #proseccodoc #proseccodocg #loveprosecco #proseccogram #notchampagne #🥂 #🍾 #🥂🍾 . .

At the launch for the #zingerdoubledown and it is HOT stuff! Launching in the UK for the very first time but I know elsewhere had it first. My mouth is on FIRE and I love it 💕 @kfc_uki really love us but it’s only around for three weeks so grab it from today! Totally filling and came with a cherry Pepsi Max - low sugar is their default - because they love us! . Zinger Double Down was launched in the UK in response to pressure from superfans who loved the #doubledown and #Zinger - so fans really can make a difference! . Did you know that all chicken used is prepared in store - all that different breading, assembling - everything is done locally in store so your #KFCchicken is about as fresh as you can possibly get. No matter where in the world you go, it’s freshly made in store! . My face is on fire and I LOVE IT! NEED MOAR NOW!!! . #limitedition #kfc🍗🍟 #kfcuk #zingerburger #kfczinger #chickenburger #lowcarbpaleo #baconlover #lovekfc #ilovekfc

This stunning presentation piece from @hotelchocolat is new for Christmas 2018. In stores closer to Christmas this is probably the best value for money piece I’ve seen this #christmasinjuly so far. Tons of different chocolate in a beautiful array of colours and flavours I think I might be investing in one of these myself this year! I always recommend #hotelchocolat and this just takes to to a whole new level 💕🍫💕 #chocolate🍫 #ilovechocolate #chocolatelover #🍫 #🍫🍫 #chocolaterie #chocolatelove #chocolateaddict #chocolateporn #foodporn #foodblog #foodbloggers #londonfoodie #foodinspiration #foodinstagram #chocaholic #darkchocolate #instachoco #chocolateaddict #chocolateheaven

It’s not just #chocolate🍫 that I love - it’s also #fudge! This absolutely delicious #clottedcreamfudge from the West Country is part of the #coopxmas range for 2018. I dearly wish we’d been gifted some but sadly I’ll have to buy my own. The #ChristmasInJuly press day was fabulous with lots of passionate people developing amazing recipes with flair and the highest ethical standards that I’m aware of. They don’t just wonder about what we’d like - they go out and try everything and develop the best possible versions of what they see us enjoying. Want deliciously #ethicalfood that’s #locallysourced and often #fairtrade then shop at @coopukfood . . . #creamfudge #bestfudge #ilovefudge #coppermug #copperhomewares #westcountry #westcountryfudge #devonfudge #cornishfudge

Bees Wrap from @eddingtonsofexeter Stojo reusable and collapsible mugs (which I LOVE) from @auteuruk compostable coffee capsules from @dualit_ltd and awesome storage bits from @kuhnrikonuk - the future is absolutely eco friendly! #ES18 is full of inspiring products with a real focus on being eco friendly. What’s more is they are tackling some of the big issues by making products available that change the planet for the better fit perfectly in our lives. Excellent show - excellent technologies - best future for the planet.
