In addition to the opportunity to consume as much chocolate as possible, attendees may get involved by entering chocolate-themed contests. The Homemade Chocolate Dessert Contest is for those who think they have a recipe for a chocolate dessert worthy of an award. A panel of judges will sample the desserts and choose winners in three categories: Chocolate Cakes & Pies, Chocolate Cookies & Brownies and Unique Chocolate Treats. Entry forms are available on the events page of the Belmont Shore website. It costs $10 per dessert to enter.
Those who would rather eat chocolate than make it are welcome to enter the Chocolate Pie Eating Contest. Contestants will race each other to see who can eat an individual-size chocolate cream pie the fastest. Winners of all contests will be announced at 4pm on Corona Avenue (south of 2nd St.) and will receive trophies.
