Visit the 2011 Chocolate Celebration For a Sweet Time!

One of my all-time favorite annual events in Kokomo is just around the corner, and my sweet tooth is ready!  J. Edwards Fine Chocolates will present the 9th Annual Chocolate Celebration on Thursday, February 3, 2011 at the Kokomo Mall.  Local restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and chocolate connoisseurs will offer their special (and delicious!) chocolate creations from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  My advice is come early for best selection!

Red Velvet Kisses offered at 2010 event (red velvet cake covered in chocolate - one of my favorite selections from last year!)

Chocolate lovers will be in paradise with the large variety of sweet desserts available, including brownies, cheesecake, flavored coffee, cookies, hot chocolate, cake, crème brulee, cupcakes, pastries, truffles, chocolate-dipped fruit, fudge, and many other tempting chocolate treats.  I am, of course, a HUGE chocolate fan and look forward to what will be offered at the event each year.  There is definitely something for everyone, including Valentine’s Day gift items you can purchase for your sweetheart or family members if you don’t enjoy chocolate yourself.  Visit their website for a list of items that will be offered this year.

This is one day of the year that I completely enjoy devouring chocolate desserts for lunch.  However, if you wish to eat first, several vendors will offer lunch items, and Grace United Methodist Church will sell soup and sloppy joe sandwiches in the Kokomo Mall.   

Admission to the Chocolate Celebration is free.  Tickets are 2 for $5 and can be redeemed for one chocolate treat of your choice.  Tickets are available at the event or in advance at J. Edwards Fine Chocolates and Samaritan Caregivers.  Plan now to satisfy your sweet tooth at this great annual event!  For more information or to see more photos from last year’s event, visit their website.
