Greatest Moments in Choc History2

If you remember approximately a month ago, I posted my travel story about heading over to Williamsburg, VA to learn about Chocolate History first hand involving American Heritage Chocolate. It was an amazing trip, and I learned so much about American Heritage Chocolate, which makes me so excited to have the opportunity to share this giveaway with all of my readers!

This fabulous book, GREATEST MOMENTS IN CHOCOLATE HISTORY was just released in the past few weeks too! I had a chance to glance at it for a bit while in Williamsburg on my Chocolate History trip, and this book is GORGEOUS. It’s filled with so much chocolate, you’re sure to get your chocolate fix for sure!

GREATEST MOMENTS IN CHOCOLATE HISTORY: With 20 Classic Recipes from Around the World is packed with chocolate fun facts, gorgeous photos and reveals the untold story of the world’s favorite indulgence.

Did you know that M&Ms were invented for WWII soldiers as the chocolate that wouldn’t melt in their hands?
Or that Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV had their own personal chocolate makers?
And that Thomas Jefferson predicted that chocolate would outstrip coffee as the most popular drink in America?

Featuring delicious chocolate recipes made with AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate, this entertaining romp through chocolate history is the perfect gift for chocoholics everywhere. Hint: This would be the PERFECT Christmas Gift for the Chocolate Lover in your life!!!

Speaking of chocolate recipes, have you tried out my Chewy Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies featuring American Heritage Chocolate??? They are DELICIOUS! (If you win this giveaway, I highly recommend making them!!!)

It should come as no surprise that the Latin word for chocolate translates to “food of the gods.” Beloved by everyone for thousands of years, from the ancient Aztec to Marie Antoinette to George Washington, chocolate has engendered a worldwide passion that has endured across the centuries.

This journey through the rich history of this delectable food will take you along on the first ascent of Mount Everest to the battlefields of World War II—even to the witch trials of the Spanish Inquisition. Discover and explore the events, people, and technology that transformed the bitter cocao bean into decadent drinks and candies, and revel in eureka moments that resulted in such classics as M&M’S® and milk chocolate. Next, try your hand at 20 classic chocolate recipes from around the world, including an authentic historic chocolate recipe made with American Heritage® Chocolate, from Mars Chocolate North America. History has never been so appetizing!


What makes American Heritage Chocolate so different from the rest???

American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products—developed from chocolate recipes from the 1750’s—that celebrates chocolate’s important role in the lives of Americans during the 18th century and is reminiscent of what Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Ben Franklin would have enjoyed, combining all natural ingredients and exotic spices.

American Heritage Chocolate can be used in recipes replacing semi-sweet chocolate at a one-to-one ratio.

American Heritage Chocolate is made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives.

American Heritage Chocolate is an artisanal dark chocolate containing 63% cacao.

Mildly spicy, and slightly sweet, American Heritage Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.

American Heritage Chocolate is Kosher-certified, made without dairy, wheat, peanuts, or tree nuts, and is made in a facility that does not contain peanuts and tree nuts.

Charlton CoffeehouseThis was when I had a chance to try out the rich chocolate drink from American Heritage in Williamsburg, VA. So amazingly delicious, I make it at home now as a treat every now and then!
