'Tis the season for chocolate!

As if I need an excuse for a daily dose of cacao-based confections, I am very excited about this year's offerings from Divine Chocolate.  Divine Chocolate is a is a fantastic FT (fair trade) chocolate company based in the UK, and available in the UK, US, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Hungary, Denmark, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Japan.  They offer lush bars of chocolate with such additions as dried raspberries, crystallized ginger orange peels, and spiced cookies.

Divine's Advent Calendar is a beautiful thin box with a milk chocolate heart hiding behind each door and a layer of gold foil, just waiting for you to count down each delicious day leading up to Christmas.

Celebrate the Festival of Lights with milk chocolate coins, dark mint medallions, and foil-wrapped chocolate balls.

Limited Edition Holiday bars this year include additions like hazelnut truffle, dried cranberries, and spiced cookie bits.  Did I mention the spiced cookies already?  Imagine that Santa's cup of cocoa and plate of ginger cookies got caught in a tornado, and try not to drool on your keyboard.  Speaking of cocoa, they also sell cocoa powder for baking and have a list of decedent recipes you can make at home with tips on how to bake with chocolate.  This recipe for Squidgy Chocolate Pudding, compliments of The Pudding Club particularly sparked my interest.  How can you not want to eat something described as "squidgy"?

Find Divine Chocolate in stores in the U.S., stockists in the UK, or shop online...if you can wait that long!
