Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

Whether you’re a fan of sweet milk chocolate, prefer bars spiked with chilli, salt or nuts or are a purist with a passion for bitter, 80 per cent cocoa, this is an ingredient that tastes like indulgence.

HOW TO

Treat yourself (and the one you love, if you can bear to share) to a warm chocolate pudding, indulgent chocolate pots or moreish chewy cookies. Biscotti flecked with dark chocolate, cherries and sea salt are a joy with cheese, while silky-smooth Hans Sloane drinking chocolate takes hot drinks to a new level.
