Fall is Vermont’s iconic season.  This fall has been a little different as the weather has felt like summer until just a short week or so ago— people were still swimming in Lake Champlain at the end of September!  While summer is usually too short in Vermont, something felt off about it still being so […]

Pumpkin Spice Done Right

Yes, we have a spiced pumpkin truffle.  And it’s delicious (ok, amazing).  But we want to be clear, this is no “let’s jump on the pumpkin spice-obsessed bandwagon.”  We’ve been making this truffle for over 20 years!  It’s always nice to be ahead of your time.  Back in the 90s it just made sense to make a […]

Set the Easter Table with Chocolate

Flowers, festive linens, and bowls brimming with jelly beans are a must at the Easter table, but no table setting is complete without chocolate, lots of it.  A place setting Easter bunny or carrot at every seat is a thoughtful, tasty gift for each guest. Made of rich, Belgian milk and dark chocolate, our place […]

Take your Best BunnySelfie

Easter is all about the bunny.  And specifically chocolate bunnies.  Everyone has a chocolate bunny in their basket come Easter morning.   LCC has some pretty adorable bunnies (see how they are made here) and it’s kind of a shame that they are appreciated for only a short time before they are devoured a few moments […]

Where do Chocolate Easter Bunnies Come From?

There are oh so many places where chocolate Easter bunnies are made.   We prefer to tell it like it is: you can’t get any better than our chocolate bunnies.  Made with Fair trade certified chocolate. Fresh in Vermont. Hand poured with love and care. And let’s face it, most parents steal from their kid’s Easter […]
