This Triple Chocolate Mint Cookie from Liz Lovely (Waitsfield, VT) had a nice, slightly crunchy chew, with plenty of chocolate and peppermint flavor.

The cookie held together well (sometimes crumbling is an issue with gluten-free cookies) and I felt like I was eating a "real" cookie.

Liz Lovely makes gluten free and vegan cookies in Vermont's Green Mountains. This cookie was also dairy free, egg-free, pareve and Non-GMO.

Today was Day #10 of Chocolate and Mint Theme Week. As I previously explained, I'm taking liberties with the term "Week," and I'm stretching one theme week into, well, two weeks (14 days).

I considered re-titling Chocolate and Mint Theme Week to Chocolate and Peppermint Theme Week, as almost all the chocolates this past week or so have contained peppermint (with the exception of an absinthe chocolate).

So, back to the actual chocolate...This silky smooth Truffle Pig Dark Peppermint bar from Hagensborg Chocolates (Burnaby, BC, Canada) was cleverly made of three chocolate pigs stuck together, each with a different expression. I ate two of them. The aroma of peppermint wafted through the air when I opened the packaging. The bar had remained fresh tasting after spending a considerable time wallowing in my "chocolate vault" in the back room.

Thank you pigs; and thank you to Hagensborg for creating such entertaining lively pig characters -- such as the one stepping out with the scarf pictured on this wrapper. Other illustrated pigs frolic and recline in chocolate.
