We are so excited to announce our ongoing partnership with Chris Bohjalian and Lake Champlain Chocolates that we’re celebrating with a giveaway! The winner will receive a copy of each book as well as six of each chocolate bar and two of each collection. We recommend choosing one of these reads as your next book club pick and sharing the chocolate bounty with the entire group.
Some proper Puritans might have resisted cocoa’s magic allure, but we’re willing to bet that fiery Mary Deerfield would enjoy a taste of her old home with this Toffee Almond Crunch Bar. She knows the devil has nothing to do with this dark temptation and she isn’t afraid to make a little (or a lot of) noise.
There’s nothing quite like the sultry, smoky taste of bourbon, and we like it best with a little sweetness mixed in, too. It’s even better when we can enjoy it without a hangover or getting in way over our heads the way flight attendant Cassie Bowden does. These Bourbon Caramel Bars are even perfect for slipping in your carry on, so feel free to indulge at 35,000 feet.
Italy reminds us of our favorite hazelnut spread, and while we’re not above eating it by the spoonful, we find encasing it in a chocolate bar to be much more civilized. Let it slowly melt in your mouth as you enjoy this love story and console you as you read through moments of despair.
Smart cyclists like Austin know that after a long ride in Vietnam, there’s no better way to hydrate than coconut water, but in order to quell the adrenaline you’ll feel as Alexis tries to unravel his disappearance, we recommend combining the coconut with chocolate.
Dowser Patience Avery is fighting to save the Chittenden River, threatened by drought and a ski area expansion. This collection perfectly fits her mission, helping to restore and repair the quality and integrity of waterways, with 10 percent of net profits given back to the Intervale Conservation Nursery.
Chocolate can’t cure all ills, especially family tragedies, but we know that it can help, and that showing a little kindness, to others and yourself, is never a bad idea. We won’t judge if you read this book, or devour these chocolates, in one sitting.
