I can’t believe it’s only a week until the start of December! When this realisation dawned upon me yesterday, I thought I’d better start looking for advent calendars. Since my family loves chocolate so much, I’ve sought out some great options that suit both the milk and dark chocolate lovers. Along the way, I also came across some cute chocolatey stocking fillers 😉
All the festive chocolates presented in this post happen to be dairy free and vegan, so they can be enjoyed by anyone, including those that are intolerant to dairy.
And I mean anyone! Who was the party pooper that decided that advent calendars and stockings were only for children? If there’s chocolate involved, I’m definitely joining in 😉
