Guinness Brownies

Here at Lake Champlain Chocolates, it’s no doubt we like chocolate.  We also like beer.  We especially like combining beer and chocolate, either in pairings, in recipes, or by just noshing on some chocolate then swishing beer around in our mouths.  I’m only kidding.  Kind of. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this month, and […]

The energy is contagious.  The fun is permeable.  The loot is delicious. Vermonters from near and far brave March’s unpredictable elements to join the crowds for creative floats, great […]

A Tribute to the Flavor of Vermont

Maple sugaring season is about to hit high gear.  Here in Vermont we don’t rely on Punxsutawney Phil to tell us whether we’ll have an early spring, we look to the maple sugar makers.  When the sap starts to run, it’s a sure sign spring is around the corner.  Sugarmakers (as they are called) look […]

Extreme S’moring!

Lake Champlain Chocolates inadvertently invented a new sport this past weekend, EXTREME S’MORING! The conditions were ideal at the Stowe Mountain Resort – gale force winds, -20 degrees temps, snow that was coming down sideways.  In other words, a perfect storm. The heartiest of skiers & riders threw on their helmets, goggles, and a couple of extra […]
