The tree is a massive 580g, so it's definately for sharing - if you can eat this on your own, I commend you as it's meant to serve 12 people! As well as it being aesthetically pleasing and festive, the chocolate is really thick and the milk chocolate actually wasn't overly sickly sweet but definately wasn't bitter, basically a good quality milk chocolate. It's also packed with "stuff" - almonds, florentines, dried cranberry and truffles. My favourite were the truffles, they were lovely and smooth with just the right amount of crunch to the outside. In fact, me and my boyfriend got a bit territorial/possessive over the truffles which was a bit daft as there was loads of them!
I think this would make a lovely gift or be nice to have on Christmas Eve/Day but after looking at the website properly, Hotel Chocolat actually do loads of other Christmassy stuff too, there are Christmas Gifts and even Stocking Fillers, which I think is a really nice touch. I'd be chuffed to bits if got something like this on Christmas (hint hint!)
