Choux Box Delights - Serious Cake Pops

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!!  

So were they as delicious as they looked ... YES!! They were gorgeous, very moist on the inside with the perfect amount of chocolate covering. They were really fun too with the whole family enjoying the novelty of them. They would be perfect for any occasion - birthdays, hens, dinner parties - the list is endless. Now all I need to do is come up with an excuse to buy some more - hmm whose birthday is it next??
