It was a chocolate lover’s delight at Kennett High School earlier this month, when the gym was transformed into something heavenly — rows and rows of all things chocolate. Over 1,000 visitors to the Kennett Chocolate Lovers Festival paid $10 each to sample five pieces of chocolate — brownies, cakes, cookies, candy and cupcakes  — and helped raised $16,500 for the Community Impact Fund of United Way of Southern Chester County. Ribbons were awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place to professional, amateur, and student divisions of each of the chocolate baking categories.

“We can’t thank enough the adults, professionals, and students who baked for us,” said Carrie Freeman, UWSCC’s CEO.  “Without their entries, this festival couldn’t happen.”  Two professionals scored big with 3 ribbon each:  Nancy Orlando from West Chester’s Heavenly Sweet Chocolates and Pam Matthews from Kennett’s Country Butcher.

Top Amateur winners included Patti Beauchesne for her Chocolate Peanut-Butter-Ganache Brownies, Michelle Cope for her Michelle’s Sinfully Delicious Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse, Alison Snyder for her Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles, Lisa Gross for her Lisa’s Dark Chocolate Raspberry Bar, and Roberta Carlson for her I’ll Stop the World and Malt with You cupcakes.
