Do you love chocolate? Do you like doing something different? Do you like helping a good cause? You can have it all on February 9, beginning at 5:30 to 8:30 PM at Open Door's Chocolate Lovers Festival. Chocolate vendors, like Lindt will provide samples of their mouth-watering candy. We will have two wonderful vendors with Dove Chocolate Discoveries, but no need to worry about competition, with Dove Discoveries there is more than enough for everyone, like Crusted Almonds at one table, and dark and milk chocolate coins plus mint filled baking bits to sample at the other.
They’ll have delicious WaWa chocolate flavored coffee to drink with cakes and pastries from Baker’s Dozen, Dia Dolce and The Baker’s Touch. If plain coffee isn’t for you, Dirt Broke Gourmet will have samples of cappuccino, plus an array of their other original products. A rep from Pampered Chef promises to share several delectable treats made using their wide array of cooking and baking products.
At 6:30 PM there will be a demonstration on making a Black Forrest Trifle, with samples to follow, of course. There will be a chocolate fountain with an assortment of fruit, pretzels and other items fresh items for coating. As a festival special, Open Door will also have a half price display of many items for Valentine’s Day from their store.
The first 100 people through the door will receive goodie bags with samples, coupons and information from vendors who are present and others who wished they could be.
There will also be a silent auction with items donated by the vendors. There will be baskets from candy shops and restaurants up for bid as well as several filled with home baked items from some of our favorite bakers. Also, an exciting item will be a certificate for two to go on Philadelphia’s Chocolate Tour, a popular city destination for chocolate lovers of any age.
