Guylian Belgian Chocolate Sea Shell Truffles - Review & Giveaway (Holiday Gift Guide)

I think I may have found the most beautiful chocolates I've ever seen in my life.  When you think of chocolate you don't think of how pretty it is, but that was the first thing that came to mind when I opened my box of assorted Guylian Belgian Chocolate Truffles

They are so unique and beautiful, it's almost sinful to eat them.  At first I didn't want to, I wanted to save them.  They look like they should be be placed in a bowl and used for decorations.  They truly are that beautiful and would create the perfect accent or centerpiece - perfect for the holidays.
 

Of course, my love for their beauty didn't last long because I had to taste them to see if they tasted as good as they looked.  I must say that Guylian Belgian Chocolates are simply divine.  They are smooth, rich and delicious!  I let them melt in my mouth as I savored every single moment.
 
I hate to admit it, but I had to hide some of them in the cupboard because I wanted to eat a few every time I walked past.  So, I resorted to the "out of sight, out of mind" technique in order to make them last longer!

Guylian Belgian Chocolates are smooth and silky, rich and creamy, luxurious and delicious and sure to satisfy every chocolate lover.
