Pensacola Chocolate Festival

If crawfish isnt your thing, than chocolate probably is. The great unifier, it seems everyone can get into the sweet stuff, and even more so when its for a good cause. Proceeds from this annual event benefit the Gulf Coast Kids House, which provides child protective services, law enforcement, prosecution and medical and mental health professionals. The facilitys one-house concept streamlines the medical and legal processes that an abused child must go through and helps ensure victims are not further traumatized.

This years festival takes place at Cordova Mall on April 30 from noon to 3 p.m. Participants will get to tour the mall and get a delicious chocolate sample from each participating local vendor. Past events have included chocolate cupcakes, ganache, chocolate bread pudding and dark chocolate mousse. By the end of the walk around the mall your box is literally exploding with chocolate delightsand you cant feel guilty because its all for a good cause. Maybe you should buy two tickets…
