The Finer Points of Hot Chocolate

Friends of mine have an annual party featuring what they contend are the three most important food groups—garlic, butter and chocolate.

Of these, I would say that chocolate reigns supreme on the menus of folks in Carding, especially the hot, drinkable kind.

That’s where the agreement begins and ends because, as you will find out, everyone likes their hot chocolate in their very own way.

Welcome to Carding, Vermont where life always includes a dash of the unexpected. Carding is the small town (population 3,700 or so) that no one can seem to find on a map of the Green Mountain State. But you can find it any time, right here in the Carding Chronicles and in the four novels of Carding, Vermont, The Road Unsalted, Thieves of Fire, The Dazzling Uncertainty of Life, and Lights in Water, Dancing.

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to subscribe to the Chronicle by clicking the link on this page. That way, you’ll never miss a story.

Hope you can stop by tomorrow for a cup of hot chocolate, a good story, and a recipe.
