Our own creation, this is a personalised chocolate advent calendar that allows you hide a message in chocolate behind each window. As the month passes by, your secret message is revealed. It's perfect as an advent calendar for grownups or as an advent calendar for kids. The only question is, what message will you write? Reveal a secret, give a clue to their Christmas present or add a funny message.
