Churches & Chocolate offers History, Discussion, and mailed Chocolates

KANKAKEE – A “Churches & Chocolate” virtual tour promises to serve up a unique experience for area residents this spring.

The virtual course, offered by the Continuing Education Department at Kankakee Community College, in partnership with Illinois Valley Community College, kicks off Tuesday, March 30th, 7-8 pm. 

Those registering for the event will experience highlights from three churches in the “City of Steeples,” Milwaukee.

“Even while remaining physically distant, this tour promises a lot of fun,” said Deb Hoyer-Denson, KCC’s assistant director of continuing education. “Participants will satisfy all their senses because indulgent chocolates are mailed ahead of the event. When you add in tours of the beautiful churches, historical information, and stories, plus a chance for discussion as it all happens, this is a unique and enjoyable way to spend the evening.” 

Those registering for the event will receive a large box of chocolates from Indulgence Chocolatiers.

“A chocolatier will describe the chocolates in the box, where they were made, along with special techniques that went into them, flavors that pair well with each, and more,” Denson explained.

Participants for the virtual event must register by March 16. Registration is $79 and includes a box of chocolates from Indulgence Chocolatiers for the virtual guided chocolate tasting course.

You can register by phone at 815-802-8206.
