Interning at Lake Champlain Chocolates

We are very sad that next week Marissa, our Champlain College Intern, is leaving us.  She brought so much enthusiasm and great ideas to us while she was here.  Luckily I think she enjoyed being here as much as we enjoyed having her.  And so here are some parting words from Marissa herself…. I’m going […]

Easter Traditions

On Easter morning in my house, it was always a competition to determine which sibling – me or my younger brother – would be the first to find their Easter basket.  I usually won.   I managed this, not because I am the eldest sibling as one might think, but because I would wake up […]

Easter Pancakes

My favorite thing about Easter morning (besides all the Chocolate Bunnies) is brunch.  Mimosas, ham, quiche, pancakes, fruit salad, asparagus with hollandaise – brunch is as big an ordeal as a Thanksgiving dinner for my family.  And while these chocolate chip pancakes are good enough to accompany any decadent brunch dish, I’ll be honest and […]
