The Best Ways to Enjoy Prestat Chocolates on a Hot Day

Summer days bring the joy of sunshine, outdoor activities, and delightful gatherings.

However, as the temperature rises, enjoying chocolates can become a bit challenging.

But fear not!

With a little creativity and some practical tips, you can savour the exquisite flavours of Prestat chocolates even on the hottest days.

Here are the best ways to relish these luxurious treats without compromising on taste or texture.

Chill Before You Indulge

One of the simplest ways to enjoy Prestat chocolates on a hot day is to chill them beforehand.

Place your chocolates in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes before you plan to eat them.

This will firm up the chocolates, making them refreshing and less likely to melt in your hands.

Remember, don’t leave them in for too long to avoid dulling the flavours, and don't chill more chocolate than you intend on enjoying to avoid taking the risk of blooming. 

Frozen Chocolate Bites

Transform your Prestat chocolates into delightful frozen bites.

Simply place the chocolates in a freezer-safe container and freeze them for a few hours.

Frozen chocolates offer a unique texture and a cool treat that melts slowly in your mouth, perfect for a hot day.

Some of our chocolate truffles are especially suitable for this, for example our Gianduja Milk Chocolate Truffle, or the London Gin White Chocolate Truffle.

Chocolate-Infused Beverages

Elevate your summer drinks by adding a touch of Prestat chocolate.

Melt a few pieces of chocolate and mix it into your coffee, iced latte, or even a milkshake.

The rich, creamy flavour of Prestat chocolates will add a luxurious twist to your beverages, making them more indulgent and refreshing.

You can also melt some of our chocolate flakes for a delicious Chocolate Affogato.

Chocolate-Dipped Fruits

Combine the goodness of fresh fruits with the decadence of Prestat chocolates. Melt the chocolates and dip your favourite fruits like strawberries, bananas, or pineapple slices into it.

Let the chocolate-coated fruits cool in the fridge for a bit.

This not only prevents the chocolate from melting too quickly but also creates a delightful contrast between the juicy fruits and the rich chocolate.

Incorporate Into Desserts

Incorporate Prestat chocolates into your summer desserts.

Chop the chocolates and add them to ice creams, yogurts, or as a topping for cakes and pastries. Broken wafer thins and truffles easily elevate the final look of a summer dessert. 

This way, you can enjoy the rich flavours of Prestat chocolates without the risk of them melting in your hands!

Storing Tips

Proper storage is crucial during hot weather.

Keep your Prestat chocolates in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

If your home tends to get very warm, consider storing them in the refrigerator, but make sure to seal them in an airtight container to prevent any moisture from affecting the quality.

Pair with Cool Wines and Spirits

For adults, pairing Prestat chocolates with chilled wines or spirits can be an exquisite experience.

A glass of cold white wine, rosé, or even a chilled whiskey can complement the rich flavours of the chocolates, making for a sophisticated summer treat.

Hot days shouldn't stop you from indulging in the luxury of Prestat chocolates.

With these creative methods, you can enjoy the delightful flavours and textures of these chocolates without worrying about the heat.

Whether you prefer them chilled, frozen, or as part of a refreshing dessert, Prestat chocolates can be a perfect companion for your summer days.

So, go ahead, experiment with these tips, and enjoy your chocolates in the most delightful ways!
