Fairytales really do come true! A magical evening is about to take place in Toronto, and I'm already calling up my fairy godmother to make arrangements. The Toronto Chocolate Ball happening this fall is a sweet lover's paradise! This Willy Wonka-meets-Cinderella event will be an enchanting evening of dancing, music, and, most importantly, CHOCOLATE!

Who cares about Prince Charming, I'm going for the sweets! The ball, named, 'CoCoUTURE featuring 50 Shades of Chocolate' will fulfill all your wildest dreams, and make even an Oompa Loompa drool. Chocolatiers from across the land (Toronto) will be offering their finest products, and you're going to want to try them all!

The ball runs in October during Toronto's annual Chocolate Festival, which began in 2004. This will be the 17th Chocolate Ball the city has held and promises to be just as magical as all the rest! The event will benefit Prostate and Breast Cancer Initiatives and will be held at the lavish, art deco venue, Eglinton Grand. 

Upon entering the ball, you will be greeted with the delicious smell of chocolate. You might have to stop yourself from devouring the massive chocolate buffet, stretching over 100ft long! As you venture along this heavenly table, you'll be greeted with sweet & savoury items offered by some of Toronto's top chocolatiers, pastry chefs, and restaurants. Indulge in samples of chocolate, desserts, and other chocolate-infused savoury foods. 

The evening also includes various entertainment that will keep you distracted from eating all of the chocolate at once. The Cocouture Fashion Show will display various fashions and chocolate-themed outfits for men and women. Other activities include special performers and guests, contests, prizes, and DJ. 

Don't expect to find a ticket in your next chocolate bar! You can purchase tickets on Eventbrite by clicking here. The Chocolate Ball takes place on October 17 from 6 pm - 11 pm. Don't forget your glass slippers!
