Chocoholics and others who’d like an excuse to satisfy a sweet tooth will want to head to East Lansing for an all-you-can-delight-in Chocolate Lovers Month extravaganza that helps the Michigan State University Museum.
The 23rd annual Chocolate Party Benefit, 1:30-3:30 p.m., Sunday, February 26, at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center features chocolate creations by area candy makers, caterers, chefs and culinary students. A highlight is the annual sculpture competition which in the past has seen pyramids and carousels crafted of chocolate.
Samples of tortes, truffles, cheesecakes and chocolate fountain desserts are included in the ticket price. Sorry, no doggie bags allowed, but there are chocolates for sale if you’d like to take away confections for the drive home.
Proceeds benefit the MSU Museum, which features cultural and natural science collections.
Tickets are $30 ($25 for MSU Museum members) in advance online; $35 at the door. The $75 Premier Chocolatier ticket includes a preview of the goodies and an annual museum membership.
I’ve not attended this event, but I enjoy the MSU Museum and thought I’d share this sweet way to help a Michigan treasure.
