The coolest box of chocolates in the world…ever.

A parcel arrived from Justine’s Austrian in-laws, and in it were various gifts for the family, most of them edible.

When I was young, I used to prefer big presents. On average, they tended to be better. Although I’m wiser now, this one wasn’t much bigger than a 2p coin, so I was initially a little suspicious…


At first glance, merely a pretty cardboard box, measuring just 5x5cm. Not so big. But appearances can be deceiving…


….for clearly the magical fingers of elves had been at work.


It was like a prop from Alice in Wonderland. Packed in a colourful and varied display, each miniature, perfectly crafted chocolate delight promised its own taste sensation…


Delicious. Now I can say I’ve eaten a whole box of chocolates in just a handful of seconds (-:

    thank you bye the way for the beautiful picture and frame.
    justine and i love it and we will soon happily put it onto the mantlepiece.
    it’s a shame we came out to late this year to meet you.
    i think justine just discovered she hadn’t had your actual phonenumber but now she got it right from holly.

    as far i know she wanted to ask you about a wishlist at one point but then we decided to go by chance. we hope you like it however it isnot not so big as you always liked pressies to be as a child.

    merry christmas and lots of love
    your brother in law

    Many thanks for publishing our little Christmas-present in Your blog. It’s very amusing but we can imagine, that this would be a lot of hard work! Now we are fully stretched to find a good idea for next Christmas!
