‘Choc-Oh-Lot’

By on October 10, 2018

At Saturday’s 17th annual Chocolate Walk, thousands of chocolate lovers made their way to more than 30 different stops throughout downtown Lititz.

Chocolate walkers came ready and able to carry their treats as they made the rounds to 32 stops along downtown Lititz streets. The locations had guest chefs presenting their chocolate creations. Walkers started their day at the Lititz Welcome Center (train station). This year’s event was so popular it sold out weeks in advance.

Proceeds from the Lititz Chocolate Walk go to a variety of children’s charities such as the Schreiber Pediatric Center, the Lititz and Manheim Township public libraries, and the Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic.

Gannon Wright, 3, loved the Swiss chocolate covered potato chips.

 

Chef Tim Whitmyer from Scooter’s prepping and grilling chocolate sandwiches. The secret to the rich chocolatey filling is a mix of Wilbur’s dark, milk and white chocolate melting chips. The treat uses a firm sourdough bread that will not fall apart when it’s grilled, and the bread is dipped in a French toast batter.

 

Denise loved the samples so much she hugged the walking Achenbach’s Pastry long john.
