2020 Recipe Book
We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Bloomington Watercolor Society to produce the Chocolate Recipe Book. It will feature around 25 recipes from local chefs. An artist from the Bloomington Watercolor Society will paint each food item from the recipes to provide images for the book. The paintings will be displayed in the 2020 We Paint…The Sweet Life gallery display at The Vault at Gallery Mortgage on 6th street in downtown Bloomington. Paintings will also be used to create the images in the recipe book. Books will be sold at each of the Month of Chocolate events, and can be pre-ordered. Here’s a taste of what will be in the recipe book! View this flyer to learn how to submit a recipe to be included in the Month of Chocolate recipe book.

Bloomington has been celebrating the Month of Chocolate since 1997, each year and each event unique. Local businesses host chocolate themed events that celebrate a love of chocolate that goes back to ancient times! Each year, there are over 10 events, each with a different theme. Not only does this festival taste amazing, but it also offers an opportunity to raise funds to support various causes in the community. Don’t forget to get your Chocolate Passport stamped at each event you attend! Bloomington Chocolate Company will award you with a FREE box of Truffles if you turn in your stamped passport at their store in the “Olive Leaf” by College Mall.

Formerly known as Week of Chocolate, this festival has changed quite a bit over the years. Starting as a single event in 1997 and eventually growing to a week long series of events in 2008 when other non-profits were invited to join LIFEDesigns and host their own chocolate themed fundraising events, and again expanding to multiple weeks in 2016 when for profit businesses were invited to start hosting events to benefit a nonprofit. In 2018 restaurants started featuring chocolate desserts or cocktails as a stop on the passport. As we look to the future, we expect to see further growth as more excitement builds for this community wide festival!
