Thanksgiving is over, and I haven’t posted in several days, but have had this one waiting… After the turkey and the sweet potatoes and the pies, do you have room for some chocolate? Most of us do, I think! Here are some of my favorites: Thanksgiving chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates. At the store they practically JUMP off the shelf into your basket! (this is VERY GOOD branding and marketing, no?), and on the table, they don’t last long in the packaging.

And then there’s “Miami Sushi” from Romanico’s Chocolates:
