You bite your friends like chocolate..

Lindt Chocolate*
Last week, I received a parcel of chocolate to "eat, try out or play with" as I wished. I used to eat chocolate quite often, but have to admit that I've sort of gone off it in recent months. I don't dislike it, I just never seem to crave it. That said, I was intrigued to try something new.

I was sent a bar each of Lindt Excellence Dark Lime, Lindt Creation Raspberry Dream and Lindt Creation Pistachio Delight.

The Creation bars were made up of nice thick pieces, filled with gooey centres. I tried a piece of the raspberry bar, and the flavour was intense and went fabulously well with the rich chocolate. It got a definite thumbs up from me for the taste and lovely texture.

I decided to use the rest of this bar, along with the pistachio one, in a raspberry and chocolate brownie meringue cake, which I made for Saturday's dinner party. It melted well and I think it was a good addition to the recipe as we could definitely taste the flavour of the raspberries in the brownie layers.

Are you a chocoholic? Have you tried these new flavours from Lindt? Are you intrigued?

  1. The lime chocolate looks lovely, the tart lime against the richness of the dark chocolate must be lovely.

  3. I'm not a fan of chocolate, I never had a sweet tooth even as a child, but your creation looks fantastic. x

  5. I haven't tried any of these flavours, but I have tried the hazelnut milk chocolate which is amazing. Lindt chocolate is to die for, but it's so rich I can only manage a piece or two at a time. Your cake looks absolutely amazing! xx

  6. I'm a total chocoholic. I go through faces where I can eat two chocolate bars a days, let's just say I'll never be skinny. The lime chocolate would have to be my favourite to try, will keep an eye out for these xx
