Bologna's Chocolate Festival

With Bologna's Annual Chocolate Festival (Fiera del Cioccolato) just around the corner (from the 14-16 November), here are some photos from previous years to whet your appetite! From thick hot chocolate (in a solid chocolate espresso cup) to beautifully crafted sculptures made from chocolate, there's something for everyone! 



Solid Chocolate Padlocks and Keys


Chocolate Violins


Chocolate Moka Pots, Espresso Cups and Spoons! 


For Cheese Lovers: Emmental, Salami, 
Bread and a Grater in chocolate form! 


Chocolate Ravioli 


Walnuts Dipped in Chocolate & Praline


For the medics in the family: 
Chocolate pills, plasters, syringes and medicine bottles


An endless array of flavours: basil, lemon, chilli, cinnamon, and balsamic vinegar!


Chocolate Tools complete with chocolate powder for a rusty look!


Chocolate Mice (They remind me of the mice I used to 
eat as a child from the National Trust Shop!) 



Hope you liked this post. Feel free to leave comments!

    1. They looked unbelievably realistic. I think my brain would be kind of confused when I bit into it! I had to really restrain my purse strings and instead opted for a thick hot chocolate to warm me up.
