Belle of the ball

What better way to beat the freezing weather than by indulging in some truly luscious chocs?

I've been a fan of L’artisan du Chocolat's luxurious offerings since receiving a gift box at work (that was a good day) a few years ago.  I love their ganache-filled Couture Collection, distinguished by unusual flavours such as black cardamom, chestnut tree honey and tobacco, and finished in sweet and chic Japanese-inspired packaging. 

My chocolates of choice today are these beautiful salted liquid caramels, primped and preened for Chistmas 2010 in pearlescent shades.  I picked them up yesterday with frozen, greedy fingers at Borough Market and for the briefest of moments, I forgot to complain about the cold.  Each is filled with oozy caramel seasoned with Noirmoutier island’s grey salt, and for the pleasure they bring, is worth its weight in gold.
