Knox, au Chocolat

With finals fast approaching, some Knox students took a break with chocolate. Last Friday evening the French Club hosted “Nuit de Chocolat” in the Wilson House. This night of deliciousness was themed around the 2000 romance film “Chocolat” starring Johnny Depp.
“Last year we did a Moulin Rouge party and we wanted this year’s event to be centered around another French-related film,” French Club president and senior Katie Baer said.
The club itself has membership ranging from 10 to 15 members and tries to host at least one bigger event during each term. Last fall they taught people how to make chocolate mousse and winter term they hosted a brunch.
“Usually our food-based events get the most people,” Baer said.
The chocolate treats available included chocolate bars, chocolate covered cheesecake, chocolate fondue, chocolate cake, brownies, chocolate milk and chocolate mousse.
Tables were set with Hershey’s Kisses and flashcards of chocolate trivia. There were also some vocabulary cards in case attendees wanted to learn some French words. French posters adorned the room and French music played in the background.
Several attendees expected the film, “Chocolat,” to be played as well and expressed some disappointment when they found out it was not, but most still stayed around to taste chocolate.
