Death by Chocolate.

Ah, the things I do for this blog.  Saturday was a day full of fun, friends, and chocolate.  The 6th Annual Eureka Springs Chocolate Festival was held at the Best Western Conference Center... packed full of people from all over.  Students from several regional high schools and volunteers from several organizations served up all sorts of chocolate objects, edibles and varieties to the crowd, some carrying trays full and some manning tables.  Four different fountains (a blue white chocolate fountain, red milk chocolate and traditional milk and dark chocolate stations) were crowded with attendees dunking everything from Rice Krispy treats to Fritoes (a surprisingly good sweet-and-salty combination!).  Mountain Bird Coffee offered espresso and a favorite varietal.  There was chocolate covered popcorn, big chunks of fudge from Two Dumb Dames, truffles from 2nJoy Magazine, chocolate covered fortune cookies from Holiday Island Vacation Rentals, and... well, I could spend all day listing all the sorts of chocolate that was free with paid admission to the event.

And that's the thing -- $10 for all that chocolate.  Chocolate ice cream.  Chocolate covered pretzels.  Chocolate door prizes!  Aw, yeah.

It's not too early to put it on next year's calendar, that's for darn sure.  I plan to be back.
