The anticipatory tingling of my tastebuds is telling me that the 10th Annual Oregon Chocolate Festival is this weekend. There will be three days full of chocolate tastings, chef demos, competitions, chocolate workshops, even a chocolate-makers dinner. And it all kicks off with the First Friday Art & Chocolate Walk on Friday, March 7.
I’ve teamed up with Dagoba Chocolate and will be offering free Dagoba Chocolate with the purchase of any handmade box at my studio during the Walk.
After all, what could be more perfect for a Chocolate Festival than boxes for chocolate? Whether to display the perfect truffle, give to the perfect person, or simply to haul your loot home in, boxes and chocolate go together like chocolate and strawberries, or chocolate and ice cream, or chocolate and peanut butter. Actually, is there anything chocolate doesn’t go with?
I’ve put together an array of boxes (and their templates so you can make them yourself) that are perfect for giving to the chocolate lovers in your life. Just don’t forget to add the chocolate. I’ve shared these templates before on my blog, but now they’re all together in one place. And, while I’ve shared them before, the boxes are ones I’ve made just for this occasion.
Happy Chocolate Loving, Candy
