Death by Chocolate


My town has this wonderful event each year called "Death by Chocolate".  The idea is, for the price of a ticket you get all the chocolate goodies you can possibly eat. All proceeds go towards the Break-a-Leg Theatre (our community theatre) which is working on re-building our ACT Centre (Arts, Cinema, Theatre and Film).  Not only do you get to eat a ton of delicious goodies, you also get to support a great cause by doing so!

This year the event was held on February 15th (last weekend).  I donated these chocolate avocado mousse cups using my recipe for chocolate avocado pudding.  The were a huge hit, and everyone had a hard time believing they were made with avocados let alone that they were dairy, gluten, and nut free!



This year the event was held at Sweet Lou's, which was completely transformed for the evening.  The atmosphere was absolutely perfect and a truly enjoyable evening was had by all!  Sweet Lou's donated their entire restaurant for the evening so that Break-a-Leg could hold their event here - I love that my local community comes together so beautifully to help each other out.


The tables were gorgeously decorated and adorned with chocolate goodies as far as they eye could see. 


Each table held treats more delicious than the last - it truly was a chocolate lover's dream. 


A silent auction event was also held (all the items we bid on were outbid at the very last second - darn!). 


Here are a few of our favourite chocolate highlights: 








If you missed out on this year's Death by Chocolate Event, don't fret!  Not only will it be happening again next year, I hear they have a cookbook from this year's event in the works!  I'll be sure to let you know as soon as it's available (my avocado mousse cups will be making an appearance!).
