A sweet combination: Chocolate and Charity!

If there’s one weakness I have, it’s giving in to my sweet tooth.

On April 25th, Community Christian Church hosted their 2013 ‘Chocolate for Charity’ event where over 25 vendors offered their sweets and went head to head in the amateur or professional division.

The money raised by the event will go to non-profit groups in the Lake of the Ozarks area.

To read more about the event, read LakeNewsOnline’s story.

And since it’s Friday, I wanted to ask — what is your favorite chocolate dessert?

I’m a sucker for brownies! 😀
