Chocolate is the one vice you can do indulge in anywhere. Think about it -- when was the last time you brought a nice Pinot Noir to the office or lit up at the PTA meeting?  But you can break out a nice piece of 70% cacao.

If you love chocolate as much as we do, then you're going to want to head out to the Festival of Chocolate at the Palm Beach County Convention Center this weekend.

The Festival of Chocolate allows you to become Willy Wonka, as you learn

about chocolate and its origins, all the while stuffing your face. 

Learn the fine art of pairing chocolate with wine or how to cook with

chocolate at one of the many classes and demonstrations (some classes

require an additional ticket).

Watch master chefs and bakers create one-of-a kind pieces at the

demonstrations and competitions and participate in one of the fun

activities like chocolate bingo or cookie stacking. 

After looking at all this chocolate, it's time to eat some. Some of the

best bakers and chefs will be on hand selling their wares. The official

currency of the festival are chocolate coins, which are available for

purchase in advance or at the show. 

Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for kids 2-12. Chocolate treats range

from $1-$5 and chocolate coins are sold in $1 increments.  The festival runs Saturday and Sunday, November 19th (10 a.m. - 6 p.m.) and 20th (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.).To purchase
