Chocolate calendars for grown ups

There are a lot of producers that sell advent calendars with high quality chocolate. You can find calendars filled with pralines, with pieces of chocolate, tiny chocolate bars etc. Some of them contain alcohol, but most of them are suitable for children as well.

Now it is time to think about shopping this year´s advent calendars. In some cultures every child has an advent calendar each year. For instance in Sweden, where I live.  My husband usually fills my fabric advent calendar with 24 chocolate neapolitans of better quality. He is so wonderful!

If you are not as fortunate, you can buy one for yourself. Plenty of producers sell chocolate calendars with quality chocolate. Here are some of them. Maybe there are more. Some of them you can only find in Sweden, but, hey, maybe you will come here someday.
