Immerse Yourself in the History of Chocolate! Join the staff at the Genesee Country Village & Museum in Honoring the History of Chocolate at Celebrating Chocolate Weekend!
Back by popular demand and growing each year, Saturday and Sunday, August 8-9, is our Celebrating Chocolate Weekend. Enjoy fun facts about the uses of chocolate in both traditional and non-traditional ways in homes, trades, and businesses across the Historic Village. You’ll receive a tasting box of chocolate samples from both historic and modern recipes, including Shaker Chocolate Pound Cake, Sweetmeats, Chocolate Puffs, Sausages of Marchpane, Potato Chip Clusters, Chocolate Shortbread, and Chocolate Babka. Then explore the Village as you: Hear of a family’s love of drinking chocolate through a diary account Learn about a component of chocolate that is good for the skin Learn how to form the intricate knots in chocolate babka And much more! And when all this exploration of chocolate’s rich history makes you crave your own sample, stop by the peddler’s bread cart at the Toll House, chock-full of tasty fresh-baked chocolate breads while supplies last. The D.B. Munger Confectionery will feature chocolate-dipped jumbles, chocolate cake, coconut macaroons with chocolate drizzle, and our exclusive Steak & Cocoa Porter Hand Pies. American Heritage Chocolate is an authentic historic line of products by Mars Chocolate North America developed from recipes from the 1750s.
It will also be featured at this event and can be found in the D.B. Munger Confectionery as well!
