Taste of Chocolate photos to sweeten your day
On Sunday, the 15th annual Taste of Chocolate Dessert Competition took place in Bloomington, with more than a dozen bakers, pastry chefs, and chocolatiers vying for honors and distributing samples throngs of chocolate fans. The competition included entries from Crave at the Galleria, Obsession Chocolates, Patisserie Margo, Creative Confectionaire, and more. Proceeds benefitted the Bloomington Fine Arts Council.
The Sweet Swede, a fudge shop in Lindstrom, brought their signature dish, lingonberry fudge.
Here are a few of the tasty highlights from the day.
