The Colorado Chocolate Festival makes celebrating Mother's Day weekend almost too easy. After all, what better way to show mom your love than by whisking her away to a chocolate paradise? The Denver Merchandise Mart transforms into just that on Friday and Saturday May 12–13, its 30,000 square feet filled with truffles and imported chocolate bars. Some visitors show off their chocolate culinary chops in a Chocolatier Championships competition with goods brought from their home or shop. Others show off their chocolate eating chops in a timed contest—whoever eats the most chocolate kisses in one minute wins a crown (made of chocolate, naturally).
