I’m sorry if you think it’s too early, but 2018 has seriously been the worst and I love Christmas, so I’m determined to enjoy every second of it. I can’t wait to visit Edinburgh and walk through the German market, share a banana and Nutella crepe with Penny and see the beautiful decorations and lights wrapped around the columns outside The Dome. It really is a wonderful time of year and I was delighted when this box full of festive treats from Niederegger arrived on my doorstep…
Indulging in all the festive food at this time of year is undoubtedly my favourite part of Christmastime. Founded in Lübeck, Germany over 200 years ago, Niederegger specialises in creating luxury confectionary including chocolate-coated marzipan, truffles and nougat. The packaging of the Niederegger Marzipan Christmas Hamper* (£25) is beautiful and really captures the colours and essence of a traditional German Christmas. Every item I was kindly sent from ChocolatesDirect.co.uk would make a lovely and delicious addition to any Christmas stocking or hamper.
The Niederegger Marzipan branded hamper is filled with a selection of their most popular products accompanied by seasonal Christmas items. It contains: a Classic Dark Chocolate covered Marzipan Bar, Assorted Mini Marzipan Loaves, Chocolate Covered Marzipan Sticks (randomly selected from Dark, Milk, Amarena Cherry, Walnut), Apple Strudel Bar and a Dark chocolate covered Santa all beautifully wrapped.
The secret of Niederegger marzipan lies in the ratio, quality of almonds and a recipe that has been handed down over the generations. Niederegger is the only premium manufacturer that exclusively produces its marzipan paste itself which is prepared in traditional roasting caldrons with the whole process personally supervised by a master confectioner.
Available from leading department stores, Lakeland, Waitrose and selected Sainsbury and Tesco stores or click here to buy Niederegger online from Chocolates Direct, the home of premium chocolate, candy and confectionery gifts.
