But if you want to go beyond hunting through the best chocolate shops in London, why not try crafting your own at a chocolate-making class? There are lots of schools and workshops to choose from and if you make it yourself, you're allowed to eat as much as you want, right? Or if you're feeling generous, gift it to mum for Mother's Day.
If that sounds like too much work, find a chocolate tasting event or tour, or just hunt out some of London's best and most extravagant chocolate creations to sample.
Take a look at London's best classes, workshops, tastings and tours below. But maybe ditch that diet first.
London's best chocolate-making classes and workshops
Rococo’s flavoured bars are justly popular (the rose flavour is heavenly) and the novelties – among them hand-painted chocolate sardines, and Jersey new potatoes with mint (made from hazelnut praline, white chocolate and mint leaves) – always raise a smile. But it's the sea salt hot chocolate you must save space for. Its base is a 75 percent cocoa drinking chocolate blend, and you can have an espresso-style shot or a milky mug. Either way it comes with a truffle.
