Valentine's Day might be over, but that doesn't mean you can't have chocolate.

The suburban Village of Homewood is devoting all of Saturday, February 16, 2013, to chocolate - and you're invited!

Rachael Jones, Public Relations and Marketing Manager for Homewood, and Anne Aboushoush, owner of Sweet Annie's Bakery, which is a featured vendor at the festival, came into our ABC7 studio to tell us about the event and to show us how to make a delicious chocolate treat.
