Photos and Recap | Cocoa Cabaret at the 2012 Toronto Chocolate Ball

Move over Count Chocula, we’ve found something sweeter!

On Oct 19th we hit up Roy Thomson Hall to check out this year’s Toronto Chocolate Ball. The 7th annual gala was a swanky meeting zone for the chocolate connoisseur and obsessed. ‘Where savoury and sweet meet’ – it was time to leave the calorie counter and diet at the door. The theme for the night was ‘Cocoa Cabaret’ (keep reading for sweet photos).

In support of Prostate and Breast Cancer Initiatives, the night invited guests to sample not only the finest chocolate confectionery around,  but some unique savoury creations as well – everything from chocolate chicken wings to chocolate chili. Add in some swingin’ entertainment and a silent auction and you have yourself a ball.

Karl and I had a blast sampling everything in sight. We were particularly impressed by the selection of chocolate-infused savoury stations available. Who would have thought white chocolate and avocado cheesecake with lump crab salad, roasted tomatoes and micro cilantro salad went together so well! A smörgåsbord of awesome in our stomachs.

The Toronto All-Star Big Band, Sisters of Swing and The Dance Company provided the show. Roy Thomson Hall turned into an early to mid 1900′s fall soiree.

Nothing but smiles and sugar highs were seen from the party-goers. Only thing we thought was missing from the night was Chocolate Beer. Our recommendation for next year!
