Chocolate and love - they just seem to go together so naturally! Especially for Chocolove, a premium chocolate company based in Boulder, CO. Their dream began in a cocoa field in Indonesia and grew into a business that’s now a pioneer in the chocolate industry.
Chocolove chocolate bars are distinctly flavored bars made with all-natural ingredients. Flavors range from a sweet, creamy milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content, to an extra strong dark with an impressively strong yet smooth 77% cocoa content. Other Chocolove bars are married with flavors and ingredients like almonds, raspberries, ginger and sea salt.

That box of chocolates on the holiday dessert table can actually provide some health benefits—that’s certainly a sweet bonus. Since chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which are the seed of the fruit of the cacao (Ka-Kow) tree, it’s full of natural plant nutrients and packed with antioxidants, just as green tea and blueberries are.

Between parties, kid’s events, work, and shopping, there’s only a little time left to make those traditional Christmas goodies you remember from the past. I can handle baking a few cookies and assembling the gingerbread house with the kids, but when it comes to finding a candy thermometer and determining what’s a soft-ball or a hard-crack or thread, that’s where my expertise (and patience) comes to an end.
I’m sorry Grandma – I can’t make fudge from scratch!
Instead, I know just the place to find fudge that’s been lovingly made in a variety of scrumptious flavors - Lunds and Byerly’s.

This is my “go to” dessert for all kinds of events. I recently held a baby shower at my house that included men, women and kids. I knew that the Killer Brownie Platter would be hit for all of the above, and it was!! I had a few other sweets, but the Killer Brownie Bites were the first ones gone.
