LONDON -  Afternoon tea just got sweeter as London Hilton on Park Lane's Podium Restaurant serves the delectable ‘Confessions of a Chocoholic’ - its chocolate afternoon tea menu, which offers more ways than one to indulge a sweet-tooth.

The new menu offers chocolate lovers a four course feast of exquisite treats. After the traditional sandwiches, given a modern update with an ‘open’ presentation, customers are presented with a tiered stand offering a choice of either freshly baked chocolate scones served with chocolate praline or plain scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam; chocolate cupcakes and a colourful array of miniature chocolate fancies, such as cone of marshmallow and chocolate ganache or pineapple crumble with chocolate jelly, presented on an edible chocolate plate. All the delicacies are freshly made in-house with the highest quality Valrhona chocolate, made from 70 percent dark chocolate cocoa.

The indulgent Confessions of a Chocoholic menu is priced at £22.50 per person, or £29.50 including a glass of Champagne.

Furthermore, special themed Chocolate Afternoon Tea’s will be available throughout the year. Try the spooky Halloween, festive Christmas or lovely Mother’s Day afternoon tea. Priced at £25 per person, excluding a glass of champagne.
