Brookside Chocolate Perfect Pairing for the Holidays & Entertainment Gift Idea

Brookside Chocolate Pairing Clos du Bois (1 of 2)
I remember the first time I heard of BROOKSIDE Chocolate a couple years ago. I immediately loved it and have bought it ever since that time. I consider it a special treat, something to spoil myself with while taking a bubble bath and enjoying a glass of my favorite wine. There is just something about a glass of Clos du Bois Merlot with Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai & Blueberry flavors that pairs together perfectly. Maybe it’s the rich, dark chocolate with the soft center filled with exotic fruit flavors that blend with the Sonoma grapes? Who knows, but if you haven’t ever tried pairing your wine with BROOKSIDE Chocolate you are missing out!
Brookside Chocolate Pairing Clos du Bois (2 of 2)
 Every year at our annual holiday party we always try to give everyone we invite some sort of gift to remember the night. This year we decided to do a themed party centered around chocolate and wine and we had a few people over to try Clos du Bois Pinot Noir and Merlot. We gave everyone a handmade wine glass decorated in holiday glitter, lined with festive tissue, and filled with BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate paired with a different Clos du Bois. The glasses were simple to make by simply applying Mod Podge to the stem and pouring glitter.  Once the stem completely dried another layer of Mod Podge was applied to seal on the glitter.  We did various designs on the glasses, including polka dots. They came out great and paired with the Clos du Bois it was a great gift idea for under $25.
