    DEVOURING A SQUARE OF CHOCOLATE... is usually enough. The satisfaction, the taste, the bitterness, the sweetness, the mouth-feel, and how beautiful the candy is can all enhance the bonbon-enjoying experience.

    A CHOCOLATE ARCADE NIGHT, Choc-La-Trivia, a chocolate turtle demo, Beignet Day, and a chance to pair chocolates with wine — think white chocolate Chambord mousse in a chocolate cup alongside Rodney Strong chardonnay — are also on the dessert-dotted schedule.
