Holiday Chocolate Tower Giveaway

 Chocolate makes everything better. Especially multiple boxes of it.

One lucky winner will receive the Holiday Tower of Treasures, valued at $75 from Lake Champlain Chocolates

It’s a three box set and includes:

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – (top box)

Chocolates of Vermont – Honey Caramels, Maple Crunch, Evergreen Mint and Green Mountain (middle box)


Milk & Dark Chocolate Coins (bottom box)

Imagine how good the chocolate tower would look on your holiday table. And how much better it would taste.

Lake Champlain Chocolates are preservative-free and Kosher-certified. Their chocolate contains no additives or shelf extenders. As chocolate has over 500 flavor components, anything extra is bound to compromise the flavor.

“At Lake Champlain Chocolates, our goal is to create something extraordinary. Vermont ingredients, such as maple syrup, honey, cream and butter, have always played a role in our chocolates, as we combine the best traditions of chocolate making with new flavors and techniques. Crafted in small batches, the ingredients in our chocolates have always been fresh and natural and the results will astound you. Perhaps that’s why The New York Times reveres it as some of the best chocolate in the country.”

I love chocolate and some favorite chocolate recipes include:

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache – This is my go-to chocolate cake recipe because the cake turns out moist, rich, and has great depth of flavor. The batter comes together in just minutes with a whisk and is just as fast as using a boxed cake mix, with much more scrumptious results along with the smooth, silky and creamy chocolate ganache

Quintuple Chocolate Fudgy Brownie Cookies – Five different types of chocolate is used: Cocoa powder, melted bittersweet baking chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips, diced chocolate truffles, and chopped chocolate sandwich cookies. The cookies are rich, smooth, and very decadent for the serious chocaholic and are hands down the best chocolate cookie I’ve ever had

Chocolate Molasses Chocolate Chip Cake with Baileys Irish Cream Glaze – Both cocoa powder and chocolate chips give this easy cake a rich depth of flavor, complemented by the molasses. The glaze is good enough to want to drink

Nanaimo Bars (No-Bake) – A 3-layer no-bake bar made with a chocolate, coconut, graham cracker, and almond base, topped with a dense layer of buttercream, and finished with a slick of rich dark chocolate

Mounds Bar Chocolate Coconut Cake Mix Cookies – Chocolate and coconut is a winning combination and I baked both chocolate chips and Mounds Bar candy bars into these easy, goofproof chocolate cake mix cookies that turn out soft and moist every time

Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting – Nothing cakey at all about these fudgy, dense, rich brownies. The recipe is as easy as using a boxed mix with far superior taste and the batter comes together in less than five minutes with a whisk. Nutella swirls and cream cheese frosting optional, but recommended

Dark Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies Stuffed with Chocolate Covered Strawberries – Any dried fruit may be used but there’s something about the combination of chocolate and chocolate-covered strawberries that is especially good. Strawberries and chocolate shouldn’t only be for Valentine’s Day

Molasses Triple Chocolate Cookies – Chocolate is used three ways for maximum gooeyness in these new seasonal favorite cookies. Soft, moist, tender, no mixer is required, and if you’ve never paired chocolate together with molasses, it’s a great combo

Thin Mints (vegan, no-bake) – Ridiculously similar to the real thing and can be made in less than 15 minutes with a shortcut you’d never guess. One of the most popular recipes on my site

Chocolate Chip and Chunk Cookies – My new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for soft, chewy, fabulous cookies that are easy and straightforward to make, and yield my definition of perfect-cookie results, with two types of chocolate used

Frozen Chocolate Pudding and Wafer Cake (No-Bake, 3 ingredients) – Chocolate pudding and chocolate wafers are layered for a frozen and no-bake fun icebox cake, with wafers that stay crisp. Many ice box cakes made from graham crackers have a tendency to turn mushy and disintegrate but not this one
