Sweeten Your Celebrations With Thanksgiving Chocolates

The weather has begun to cool and here at Delysia, that means the season of chocolate is upon us. The harvest-esque flavors of fall (think: red wine, pumpkin spices, and cinnamon) pair so perfectly with the cocoa tones of chocolate that we can barely contain ourselves. While it might be more obvious how chocolate fits into Halloween treats or Dia de los Muertos celebrations, chocolate can be incorporated into every festive occasion — especially autumnal ones. And nothing screams autumn more than Thanksgiving. Read on to find unique ways to incorporate chocolate into your Thanksgiving festivities.
