NEW YORK -- Talk about a chocolate lover's dream.
This weekend is the 12th annual chocolate show in New York -- billed as the world's largest.
There are more than 800 exhibits, including a chocolate book store, where famous chefs are signing chocolate cookbooks.
There's also a chocolate lounge, featuring chocolate flavored liqueurs, coffees and snacks and a chocolate beauty pavilion that features products based on the cocoa bean.
Hakan Martensson has a chocolate carving exhibit.
He says it takes anywhere from one hour to a couple of months to carve a chocolate sculpture.
One unusual offering at the show is a week long vacation at a lodge in the Belize rain forest, where one can learn to make chocolate.
The chocolate show ends on Sunday.
