Calling all chocolate lovers! Chocolate is one of my favorite small pleasures and I have been so happy with the vegan options I have found, that even non-vegans will love! Whether you enjoy chocolate by itself, with a glass of wine, on a tasting board, or with fresh berries I have some great options for you to try that you may not have heard of before. Grab some of my selections and host a chocolate tasting for friends, give as gifts, or just to enjoy yourself while curled up with a good book or a new movie. Here we go….
