This is the third year in a row the group has won at the festival. They tied for first place in 2017 for people’s choice and won first place last year for best taste. This year students made 800 mini waffle cones dipped in milk chocolate, rolled in crushed pistachios and filled with 2 mousses: orange dark chocolate mousse and white chocolate pistachio mousse.

Hospitality and Tourism instructor, Eve Victory said, “We participate in the Chocolate Festival to give the students direct exposure to both the behind-the-scenes work of events in the industry as well as the opportunity to practice real time customer service and utilize their soft skills directly with the community we serve.”
