Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone Review
I have already reviewed the Arden & Amici Chocolate chip Panettone but I wanted to highlight their Chocolate Panettone too as it is quite different, even though the packaging is almost identical. They both come elegantly wrapped, great for if you need a last minute gift idea for a chocoholic!
The main difference with the Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone is that it has a rich chocolate coating over the top of the bread, aswell as the chocolate chips within it.
From an aesthetic point of view, it is fabulous. The chocolate is a glossy dark brown, whilst the golden colour of the actual bread is mouthwatering! The smells from the panettone are pretty fantastic too, it has a delicious buttery chocolate fragrance.
The texture of the bread was slightly drier than the other panettones I have tried from the Arden & Amici range which is to be expected with a chocolate chip panettone. It is still fantastically soft compared to most panettones I have tried from other ranges. The chocolate chips and outer coating have a sweet but rich cocoa flavour. Overall it is a fantastic bread, especially to enjoy with a strong coffee, and it looks gorgeous too.
I received the Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone to review but all views expressed are my own.
The Arden & Amici Panettone range is available in Waitrose.
