ways to delight over the holidays

It is a year of where many things seem uncertain and as we head into gift-giving and gatherings, I want to share some ideas about how chocolate can fit into your plans regardless of budget.

A handcrafted bar of chocolate is a wonderful gift. Whether you are looking for a stocking stuffer or need to create a wonderful tasting experience for a group of people, DWN has a solution. 

Send your bestie your favourite chocolate bar and grab one for yourself so that you can share an experience together whether you are near or far.

If you are hosting a holiday gathering, consider making a chocolate charcuterie board. A beautiful tableau can be created with pieces of different chocolate bar flavours, bowls of chocolate-coated nuts, along with fresh fruit and chocolate ganache for dipping.

Consider visiting a holiday market or pop-up. Often there is a small attendance fee or request for a donation for the local food bank. These holiday outings can be a festive way to enjoy the season and a way to find your new favourite local business. I have been attending maker and holiday markets for the last year and I love meeting my fellow vendors, and it is also a way that I have met many of you.

And remember to take a breath. Treat yourself to a piece of chocolate when you need a sweet pick-me-up and take a moment.
