Here are a few ideas for cherishing special time with loved ones this summer.
Take your s'mores to a whole new level
As you gather around the fire pit on a balmy summer evening, choose Chocolove for the most mouthwatering s'mores you've ever tasted. To upgrade that classic chocolate flavor, reach for Chocolove's Milk Chocolate Bar that offers creamy Belgian milk chocolate. With 33% cocoa, this bar delivers sweetness complemented by creaminess and caramel-like flavors. For dark chocolate lovers, choose Chocolove's Strong Dark Chocolate Bar, an intense, well-rounded chocolate with 77% cocoa. With a smooth and pleasant finish, it's perfect for sandwiching in between a toasted marshmallow and your favorite cracker.
Find a sweet way to stay cool
Nothing says the 'good old days' like ice cream, but no serving is complete without toppings! With more than 60 flavors to choose from, Chocolove bars are the perfect way to jazz up your ice cream. Just break off a few squares, chop into chunks or shave a sprinkle on top to give your frozen treat an added something special. Whether you reach for Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate, a Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate, or opt for a more unexpected, fruity flavor with Ruby Chocolate, you won't be disappointed. (TIP: Try popping a Ruby Chocolate bar in the freezer - it makes for a refreshing experience, even without the ice cream!)
