So Valentine's has come and gone, cards have been exchanged, expensive meals eaten and the choccies have been demolished (they lasted all of about 5 minutes in my house!!). But this year I decided to do something different and take a leaf out of the American's book. In America everyone celebrates Valentine's Day, it's not just for couples, every one you love gets a small token of your appreciation. Some might say it's a cynical ploy by Hallmark to increase their sales (you know who you are!) but I say whatever - lets spread the love!!
So after coming across the amazing Choux Box a few weeks previously and drooling over their photos I decided to order some for the family to celebrate Valentines with them. This is what arrived!!
They came in a range of delicious flavours. Chocolate, which was a chocolate sponge, mixed with a light cream cheese icing and coated in chocolate. Lemon, which was a lemon sponge mixed with a lemon buttercream & coated in white chocolate. And to top the whole American Valentine idea off - an oreo one. You can also get them as red velvet sponge which would obviously have been perfect for Valentines but like most families allergies got in the way!!
