Building a Chocolate Bridge at the Luxury Chocolate Show for SickKids Foundation

Imagine building a bridge out of chocolate – and doing a good deed at the same time!

Join us at the Toronto Chocolate Festival and build a delicious miniature replica of structures like San Francisco’s Golden Gate or London’s Tower Bridge.  It’s just $5 to take part – and while you’re having fun, your donation will help support Toronto’s SickKids Hospital, Canada’s largest centre dedicated to children’s health.

 

The Chocolate Tales team will be near the entrance of Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto, Sunday November 6th 2016 at the 6th Annual Toronto International Luxury Chocolate Show from 11am-6pm.

In case you’re wondering, the bridges are made of edible bricks, coated with fine quality melted chocolate, donated by famed supplier Callebaut.  All sorts of mouth-watering and colourful decorations are on hand to help replicate architectural features – and there’s even melted blue cocoa butter to recreate the water below.

And with all that delicious chocolate, it’ll be tough to hold back from licking your fingers!

But how does something so tasty stay so sturdy? 

Get there early to find out the sweet secret - and share the fun to help SickKids at the same time!

Hate it or Love it

 

My mom use to only buy me white chocolate as a kid because she argued it was a healthier option (no caffeine)… and as a kid that loved sweets, I’d take whatever I could get! You can say, white chocolate and I go way back. But some years later, as I discovered my more matured palate and took an interest in high quality foods, I discovered that not all white chocolate is made equal (just like not all chocolate in general is made equal) and I became traumatized with some of the gritty overly sweet concoctions I’ve tasted thereafter.
