While at the Lindt Chocolate store, I came across a variety that I had never seen nor tried before. I bought a few to share with friends and family and we all did a mini tasting.

I must say, I’d never think to pair champagne with milk chocolate. True to Lindt’s form, the chocolate was very smooth and the champagne aspect was almost awkward? To me it did not taste like any champagne I’ve had before but more along the lines of the alcohol filled chocolates you see around Christmas.

It’s not my favourite but its also not the worst I’ve had.

Have you tried these before? What did you think of them?

An annual tradition that the hubster and I seemed to have been repeating:  midnight nibblys with some bubbly to ring in the New Year.   Since we had an early dinner with the family  (you can read about that here) and it was fast approaching midnight, we were getting excited and a bit peckish.  I went and fired up the oven,  tossed in the h’ors d’oeuvres to warm  while the hubster cracked open the champagne. Real champagne, not sparkling wine posing as champagne.  For some reason he’s a stickler about it being true champagne.  I’m alright with that as we don’t drink champagne any other time of the year.

The feast:
jalapeno poppers, cheese sticks, coconut shrimp and jalapeno bacon wrapped meatball lollipops. YUM!

What did you do to ring in the New Year? Any traditions?
