Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives

On The Third Day Of Indie Christmas...

On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… three French hens three French Broad Chocolates.

French Broad's creamy, rich, malted dark milk chocolate bar is made with malted barley flour from Asheville's Riverbend Malt House and milled by Carolina Ground L3C. With hints of nutmeg and cinnamon and a little texture thanks to the local grass-fed, organic milk powder they use, it's like a malted milk ball transformed into a sophisticated chocolate bar. Dreamy.

Chocolate-makers Jael and Dan of French Broad Chocolates are all about local, organic and sustainable (they even have a solar-powered cacao roaster!), but quality is their ultimate standard and these bars are winning. They make them in Asheville, North Carolina, near the French Broad River.

And what’s better than one chocolate bar? Three of them. We’re melting.

So, to recap...

On the third day of Indie Christmas, my small-batch maker gave to me:

Three French Broads
Two Turtle Loves
And Our Indie Cocktail Made With Pear (whee!)

We have nine more days of Mouth-watering gifts. Check back tomorrow to see what the fourth day of Christmas brings…
