Drinking Lake Champlain Chocolates Hot Chocolate at Stowe

The weather reports for our Vermont ski resorts are bringing in nothing but good news: Killington had 18 inches of fresh powder as of Thursday morning, and Stowe and Sugarbush both report a good foot so far, with more to come. But hitting the slopes (and the pow) can be tiring, and when you are in need of sustenance, there is no substitute for a good bite of chocolate. Here are some chocolates that always make a good mountainside snack:

1. Chocolate coins: The perfect size to take out while waiting in line for the lift, I never go skiing without filling my pocket with a handful of these. They also make you very popular with your friends when you share!

2. Granola five star bars: the best part about these candy bars is that they contain our home-made granola blend, complete with almonds and cranberries. So even though they are covered in a sumptuous dark chocolate, you can still argue that you are having a healthy snack (particularly since dark chocolate is good for you!)

3. A thermos of our hot chocolate: I used to go skiing with a (British) friend of mine, who would whip out a thermos of hot tea whenever we were on a particularly long lift. This was great, but even better would have been a thermos full of hot chocolate! Why not start the tradition with your skiing group?

Whatever you are planning on doing this weekend, make sure to bring some chocolate along. It always makes an adventure more fun (and tasty!)


Free Chocolate at Stowe!

Stowe Ice Carving Competition

Thanks to our beautiful store in Waterbury, just down Route 100 from Stowe, we are the official chocolates of Stowe Mountain Resort. This weekend was a big one for the resort, as they were part of Stowe’s Winter Carnival, and on Saturday they hosted their annual Ice Sculpture Competition.

With only a few hours to create art out of frozen water, it was amazing to see these carvers work. Chainsaws, hand tools and rags were all used to create beautiful finished sculptures.

Free Chocolate for Everyone

All of this was great fun to watch, but with temperatures in the teens and an added wind-chill factor, we knew we had to help keep the crowds warm and happy. My mother always had chocolate in her pocket when we went skiing, and we passed along the tradition this Saturday, handing out free chocolate squares to adults and children alike.

Five Star Bar Sticker

If you missed us this past weekend, don’t worry – we’ll be back for more fun at the s’mores pit on February 16. In the meantime, look out for our 5 Star Sticker. It’s an awesome sticker to slap on a helmet or boot bag, but it’s even more awesome when you realize that it’s good for a free Five Star Bar, redeemable at our Waterbury location! Stowe staff will be handing them out if you look like you’re having a five star day, and you can always come and ask us for one at the s’mores pit!

Happy Winter! We hope to catch you (with some chocolate) on the slopes!


Lake Champlain Chocolates Smores at Stowe!

Having hot chocolate after a long day of sledding is a tradition, but wouldn't it also hit the spot after a long day of skiing, particularly at Stowe?

Of course! Fortunately you won't have to go without a cup hot chocolate any weekend that you ski at Stowe. In fact, every weekend from 2-4pm, free hot chocolate is paired with s'mores at Stowe's very own fire pit. Even, better, this happy event is sponsored by Lake Champlain Chocolates on certain special weekends throughout the season.

We just recently hosted our first s'mores event of the year, and what a success it was! Our Traditional Hot Chocolate earned high accolades from the tasters at the event -- both parents and children alike -- and if you think a s'more is good with standard chocolate, try making one with Lake Champlain's gourmet milk chocolate!

All in all, our first event was a snowy, sticky, sweet success, and we hope to see you there again this Saturday, on January 19th for some more free hot chocolate and s'mores.


Did you know that Lake Champlain Chocolates is the official chocolate of Stowe Mountain Resort? To celebrate this, last Saturday we gave away Five Star Bars at the Boston Ski and Snowboard Expo with Stowe.

There’s nothing quite like hitting the slopes (which you can do soon – Stowe is opening to the general public this weekend) but even better than skiing or snowboarding on its own is doing it with enough fuel (read, chocolate) to keep you out there for a long time. To celebrate the joys of skiing with our Five Star Bars (the granola really does the trick,) we wanted to see what people’s Five Star Moments were while on the slopes.

Obviously, fresh powder was on many people’s minds:

Fresh Powder and LCC Chocolate

But so were family, friends, and loved ones:

And there were also a few accidents:

But at the end of the day, the best part was avoiding anything major:
