LEXINGTON, Va. (WFXR) — Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so if you haven’t decided what to get the mom in your life, you’re in luck because WFXR News has a very sweet treat in mind!
WFXR News’ Hazelmarie Anderson visited Cocoa Mill Chocolates in downtown Lexington, where she helped make chocolate-covered strawberries, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, and chocolate nonpareils.
Here are some fun facts for chocolate lovers:
- It takes about 400 cocoa beans to make one pound of chocolate.
- Milk chocolate bars have a higher caffeine content than a shot of espresso.
Cocoa Mills Chocolates is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 123 West Nelson Street in Lexington. You can also check out the chocolatier’s special Mother’s Day products on their website.
