GREENVILLE The 12th annual Chocolate Festival in the Moosehead Lake Region just happens to land on one of the biggest chocolate days of the year, Valentine's Day. The 2016 Moosehead Region Chocolate Festival will feature a silent auction, a kids corner and of course chocolate.

'You can't get much better than good, quality chocolate,' said Angela Arno, executive director of the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce. 'Over the 12 years of this festival, it has become obvious to us that people from near and far like to celebrate chocolate. It comes in different forms, with different pairings, and for different occasions, but it is always enjoyable. Chocolate lovers and casual chocolate consumers will all find something to enjoy at the Chocolate Festival.'

Summer is wrapping up, and fall is just around the corner. Whether you are sitting around a campfires of the year or kicking off fall with a blazing bonfire, without a doubt you will want to make a delicious s'mores. After all, who doesn't love the classic taste of graham crackers, marshmallow and chocolate? If the treat is getting to mundane for your taste, however, or you just want to try something new, consider these variations to a nostalgic favorite.

Rolo centers -- Try jazzing up your s'more by substituting the chocolate with a Rolo. The caramel-filled treats are round, which means they perfectly fit inside the marshmallow and can be toasted at the same time. If you are running short on graham crackers, they also make a tasty treat by themselves. Say hello to melted caramel and creamy chocolate.
