Where is the Easter Bunny?

    Hi there- it’s me, Peter Cottontail.  The folks at Lake Champlain Chocolates were nice enough to let me be a guest blogger on their blog this week!  Yes, even bunnies blog. I thought this might be a good way to get the word out about where I’m going to be over the next […]

The Easter 500

  We all know chocolate can be molded into all sorts of different shapes and sizes- just take Easter for example.  Here at Lake Champlain Chocolates our Easter bunnies alone run the gamut from placesetting milk chocolate bunnies to the over a foot tall Mr. Goodtime  Giant Chocolate Bunny to the Cruisin’ Easter Bunny Rabbit.  And then […]

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 […]

Breakfast of Chocolate Champions

  Admit it.  You’ve had chocolate for breakfast.  No self-respecting chocolate lover can really say otherwise.  It’s not something one tends to announce or have out in the open- more of a sneak here and there with your cup of coffee.  I’m not talking about chocolate hidden in a muffin or pancakes; I’m talking straight […]

Spare Chocolate for Lent

Giving up something for Lent is primarily a Catholic activity but everyone can benefit from a little self-restraint/self-improvement now and then.  Anyone make a New Year’s resolution that has since fell by the wayside?  Well, here’s an opportunity to renew! I think chocolate may top the list as something people give up for Lent.  I’ve […]

Who Dat in Vermont?

Once a year despite the cold and the snow (yes, we are finally getting snow up here!), a piece of New Orleans shows up to make life a bit warmer for one afternoon in downtown Burlington.  For the 15th year, Burlington, Vermont is home to the largest Mardi Gras parade in New England, sponsored by […]

Valentine’s at the Vineyard

What could be better than “Valentine’s at the Vineyard”.  The first vision that comes to mind probably is of a lovely afternoon in the Napa Valley in California.  Or maybe a day on Martha’s Vineyard.   But no,this was Valentine at the Vineyard in Vermont!   And what a lovely afternoon it was.   Cold and blustery outside […]
