Nothing screams out Valentine’s Day like chocolate. You’re in for a treat with what Divine Chocolate has to offer this Valentine’s Day. Last week I received an early Valentine’s Day treat including a variety of chocolate to bake with, to eat, and more!

 Divine Chocolate, the premium Fair Trade brand owned by cocoa farmers, has a delicious array of Valentine’s Day treats for lovers and lovers of chocolate. When I saw the Milk Chocolate hearts in my package I couldn’t wait and had to try them and they were surely worth it!

I plan on conquering the rest of the chocolate once I’m back to full health in time for Valentine’s Day next week. I’m also hoping to come up with some  Divine Chocolate recipes in time for the holiday.

Divine Chocolate Spiked Hot Chocolate Recipe & Giveaway!

divince pack

Note: This contest has ended.

A few weeks ago, I received a package from Divine Chocolate. It included bars to bake with, a variety of their dark and milk chocolate, and their signature hot chocolate. From the moment I tasted it, I knew this chocolate was truly divine and unlike any other. It’s because the chocolate is grown under the shade of the rainforest canopy in Ghana, the cocoa beans used by Divine Chocolate are hand-harvested, slow-fermented and carefully dried by the family farmers of Kuapa Kokoo who co-own the company.

My personal favorite, milk chocolate, toffee, & sea salt.

My personal favorite, milk chocolate, toffee, & sea salt.

My favorite out of the chocolate bars was the milk chocolate, toffee, and sea salt. I could eat like five of them. All of the bars are amazing and unique in flavor. I love a great warm, cocktail for the winter, so with the hot chocolate I came up with a spiked hot chocolate recipe.
