The family-friendly, annual Festival of Chocolate packs the Palm Beach County Convention Center with delectable cocoa creations, classes, and demonstrations November 19 and 20. Vendor booths display baked and molded treats, where sweet teeth can sink into cupcakes and brownies, break through truffles, and bathe in creamy beverages. Award-winning pastry chefs demonstrate baking techniques and sculpt large, intricate, opulent dessert structures to lure attendees with the ambrosial scents of chocolate mastery and the enjoyably gooey texture of chocolate malleability. Tykes can wander through the Kids-4-Chocolate creative workshop area to make sugary crafts or write novels about the eternal struggle for candy, or attend a chocolate museum that educates on history and production methods. Throughout the festival, experts battle in the Chocolate Indulgence competition, awarding winners in six different categories. The festival maintains its own currency, the chocolate-chip coin, which is worth $1 and can be traded in for goodies generally costing $1–$5 apiece and is legal tender for all debts public and private.
