This past weekend, my daughter and I entered a world of pure imagination, Willy Wonka style. We attended the Michigan State University Museum’s 27th Annual Chocolate Party Benefit. We devoured scrumptious cakes, luscious mousse, and succulent truffles, all while enjoying a visual taste of the museum’s artifacts.
There were no oompa loompas, but instead, a minion invasion. Area chefs created minion-themed chocolate sculptures for the masterpiece chocolate-pastry competition. Join us next year for this sweet and festive tradition that supports the MSU Science & Culture museum.
Chocolatey Facts: According to The Telegraph, the chocolate river featured in the original Willy Wonka movie was made of water, chocolate and cream. Toward the end of filming, the river had developed a dreadful smell.
