We have a little routine in our house. Most nights, after we put Jake to bed, Jeremy and I open a Chocolove chocolate bar. We started this a couple of years ago, probably not too long after Jake was born. It has become more frequent because it was a really easy gluten free treat for us to eat, and gives us something to look forward to at night.
Chocolove is a small company that is actually based in Boulder, but their chocolate can be found nationwide. We started off eating the 65% cocoa dark chocolate bars but the more we’ve eaten dark chocolate the more we like it. Now we eat mostly the 70% cocoa dark chocolate bars. We also really enjoy the new dark chocolate, almond and sea salt bars.
We discovered something else this summer too, which makes chocolate even more fun. A vendor at the Boulder farmer’s market talked us in to trying the herb, chocolate mint, one day. I had never heard of this before, but chocolate mint is a variety of mint that is supposed to taste particularly good eaten with chocolate. We tried it and are hooked! When we happen to run across it, we buy it and eat it with our chocolate at night. We like it so much I think we’re going to try to grow some next year.
I was going to take a picture of our chocolate mint and chocolate together, but we ate it all before I got around to it!
