A chocolate affair: La Maison du Chocolat

5 Advent Calendars to infuse your festive season with a touch of French “je ne sais quoi”
It wouldn’t be a proper Advent Calendars round-up without at least one calendar full of yummy chocolates and La Maison du Chocolat never disappoints when it comes to celebrating the festive season with some chocolate treats. The giant colourful cardboard cracker, designed by Brazilian illustrator Fernando Volken Togni, is filled with the creations from chocolate master Nicolas Cloiseau: 21 pralines and four gourmet bar squares (so yes, that’s a total of 25 delights instead of your usual 24) including two unique recipes to savour on Dec 24 for an extra dose of festive cheers.
