And the best news now is that you can satisfy your chocolate craving without moving from your couch. Just pick up your phone and order online.
Homemade chocolates are the latest trend in Bangladesh and there are quite a few sellers online.
Many chocolatiers have their own Facebook pages offering a variety of homemade chocolates that come in different flavours and at pocket friendly prices.
The best part of ordering from them is, you can customise your order, so it is almost like making your own chocolate!
You know exactly what goes into them and can add tasty additions such as your favourite chopped nuts, fruits, dry fruits, any other flavours or just mix and match everything in one bar; it is all up to you.
You can even adjust the sweetness and decorate the chocolates with edible quotes and texts of your own. Sounds like a 'dream come true' thing for chocolate lovers!
