GIVEAWAY: Chocolate Hollow

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with chocolate. Whether it be from a significant other, family, or just treating yourself, there’s always a good reason to savor this treat. I mean.. studies say it’s good for your heart. I’ll take that any day.

While I was down in Miami for the winter holidays, I had the pleasure of meeting Maddie from Chocolate Hollow. Having tried her “schmilk” (dairy free milk-style) chocolate, I couldn’t believe how tasty it was. The big differentiator was that it was dairy free. As a practicing vegan, she found herself craving chocolate on the reg and decided to do something about it. In talking to her about her process, she let me know that Chocolate Hollow creates small batches of chocolate from organic and fair-trade cacao beans. Each batch is ground for about three days to reach the desired smooth consistency. A lot of care is taken to produce very special chocolate bars.

Maddie wants to share the love by sending a lucky reader a variety pack of her schmilk-chocolate.

The pack includes:

1) Classic Bittersweet (in silvery blue foil)- 72% cacao. Current bean: Peruvian Criollo- Delicate, with subtle fruity flavors. Notes of strawberry, toasted pecan. Please flip the bar over to see the leaf pattern.
2) Schmilk (in purple foil)- This is a vegan milk-style chocolate, designed to emulate traditional sweet candy-like chocolate.
3) Serious Schmilk (in gold foil) – This is a vegan milk-style chocolate with 55% cacao.
4)Toffee Crunch (in burgundy foil)- A layer of rich and crunchy Hollow-made toffee is encased in a bar of Schmilk.
5) Hazelnut Crunch (in dark blue foil)- Organic Oregon hazelnuts are lightly toasted and submerged in a bar of Serious Schmilk.

She’s also working on a Hazelnut Gianduja Log: A log-shaped bar, with creamy Hollow-made hazelnut gianduja inside Schmilk chocolate. Made with organic Oregon hazelnuts.

What is most unusual about her line of chocolates is that it includes various types of milk-style chocolate bars. High quality milk-style chocolate bars are unavailable on the market and she’s hoping Chocolate Hollow products will fill this void. If you’re interested in sampling some separate to entering the giveaway, check her out online!

    My favorite thing to do on Valentine’s day is to make a meal together, and then maybe just cuddle up on the couch by the fire and enjoy. I don’t like the hustle and bustle of trying to go out to eat on the same night that everyone else is out. A quiet night at home is the best!

  2. erin says:

    I second cmsterzel! I enjoy making a nice easy meal (like a homemade pasta sauce), with a bottle of wine and a fun dessert (thinking of a chocolaty cast iron skillet creation this year). I’ve been playing with a few vegan recipes and love the idea of vegan chocolate, I’m sure it’s divine!

    I like to make heart cookies and batch them up in cute little packages, and give them to elderly home bound in my area. I also give away some red fabric flower accessories – headbands and hair elastics, that I make, to teens who are having problems or the homeless ladies who come to the library.

    As a kindergarten teacher, I have my students decorate and write Valentines for the elderly at the local assisted living home. I’ve been doing it for three years now, and the tradition has caught onto a lot of other classes at the school.

  5. AMP says:

    My favorite thing to do on Valentine’s Day is throw an Anti-Valentine’s Day party. Get your single friends together and enjoy a few too many bottles of wine. Not as wholesome or romantic as other commenters, but entertaining nonetheless!

  6. Molly says:

    Ooooo I’m dairy-free and drooling over these!

    For valentines day I always handmake some cards for the special gals in my life – mom, sisters, and friends.

    I love getting with girlfriends and drinking wine! I love them more anyway

  8. Anathalia says:

    I used to like to have dinner at busy restaurants and all that stuff. But I might be getting old because now I’d rather stay at home, watch movie and drink hot chocolate! 😉

  9. Keya Millionie says:

    I love to make chocolate covered strawberries and bring them to the “Single Mingle” party my friends and I do. Even if we’re not single because we’re not there to actually meet people, just to hangout and have a good time. We usually put on valentine themed horror movies and and play games.

  10. Hannah says:

    I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day celebrator, but I do like to use any excuse possible to go out for a great meal or go away for a weekend.

    My favorite thing to do on Valentine’s day is to splurge on a delicious dinner and try new foods at a new restaurant! I LOVE FOOD!!!

  13. Stacey Jones says:

    I always bake something special for my husband, this year I think it will be red velvet related.

  14. Shelby says:

    Ummmm… That chocolate sounds absolutely delicious… and healthy! What could be better..? On Valentine’s Day, I love to make chocolate cupcakes with good friends if I don’t happen to be with that special someone 😉

    My favorite thing to do on Valentine’s Day is to go away for a few days with my partner. A few years ago we rented a cabin in the White Mountains of NH. It was great! Thanks for the great giveaway!
