Dolce by Ferrero Rocher

December is my weakness. It's cold, but not too cold. There are fairylights everywhere. It's acceptable to stay in, with a big mug of tea and mountains of blankets. Everyone is in good spirits. People are ready to see off the year and begin afresh. I love it.

I also love catch ups. And random foodie pop-ups. So when all this is combined, it makes for a really good afternoon. One of my favourites.

Our destination was St Martin's Courtyard, which had a store front of flowers that could definitely rival Liberty's offerings. In fact, I swear all those pretty Instagram pics of Liberty are a scam or taken ridiculously early because I have never seen the display as fulsome as the ones in those images. Just saying.

Opposite the flowers is the pop-up of dreams, Dolce by Ferrero Rocher.

You're welcome to show up and queue for a seat at the bar. Or, if you're really smug, like we were, you just head in, with (sold out, sorry) pre-paid tickets.

Into a golden chocolate haven.

It just smells soooooo good.

You're greeted with a glass of Prosecco, and led to a candle-lit, cosy table.

And after a brief introduction whereby the waitress explained what was coming - five mini desserts, each representing a different part of a Ferrero Rocher.

Ferrero Rocher foil napkins. Gold plates. Gold lights. Rich wood. Mmmm.

And the dessert looked alright too.

There was a mousse, a ganache, a cornflakey dessert with a chocolatey centre, a dark chocolate ball, and candyfloss topped with glitter.

My favourites? The ganache for the taste, the cornflakey dessert for the texture, and the glitter candyfloss because, well, it's glitter candyfloss.

Okay, it's not the most descriptive I've been, but I was a bit preoccupied...

It's fun here. But lacking in coffee. Which we addressed at Notes Coffee a five minute walk away on St Martin's Lane. I highly recommend. Chocolate and coffee, what could be better?

The event has now ended, but these kinds of things quite literally pop up all the time. Sign up to Eventbrite, and follow foodie mavericks Cuisson (they designed the menu, and I've blogged about their POPdown's here and here) so you don't miss out in the new year.
