Michel Cluizel Chocolates

More posh chocolate! These wonderfully crafted chocolate mushrooms are made by Michael Cluizel, a Chocolatier from Paris. You get 8 of them in a long, thin box, and they’re all so, so good.

The cap of the mushroom is made from dark chocolate, and the inside of the cap is filled with a crunchy, almond nougat. The stem of the mushroom is made of a very soft, sticky and incredibly tasty butter caramel, and is surrounded in a white chocolate shell, with the base being surrounded by dark chocolate.

This has got to be one of the tastiest chocolates I’ve ever had. There’s so much going on, and it’s all so good. The butter caramel overpowers the taste of the white and dark chocolate coating that it has, but I’ve never had a caramel taste anything like this before, compared to the recent Milk Duds I had, the difference is amazing.

I highly suggest you pick these up if you can, they’re some of the best things I’ve ever tasted, they look and taste wonderful, and its worth spending a little extra on them.
