"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." — Charles M. Schultz 

Hosted and curated by The Big Chocolate Show director Alexandra Leaf, Chocolate Fest serves as an annual gathering of chocolate lovers and enthusiasts to taste sweets from local and regional chocolate makers and chocolatiers at 92Y in the Upper East Side. Below are a few snapshots of some of the lovely exhibitors and pieces that were at the show on Sunday.
