Satisfying a sweet tooth; All Saints Church kicks off its year

The smell of warm chocolate welcomed two busloads of St. Olaf students as they entered the red doors of the All Saints Episcopal Church on Sept. 18th. Upon entering the church, students followed their noses to the church basement where two tables overloaded with homemade chocolate goods awaited them. The students made nametags and piled their plates with chocolate chip cookies; chocolate-dipped biscotti; mint-frosted brownies; caramel-swirl brownies; chocolate peanut butter bars; mocha-frosted cupcakes; varieties of fudge squares; chocolate, chocolate mousse, Oreo and raspberry tortes; cheesecakes; pound cakes; and of course, complimentary milk, coffee, or lemonade. After satisfying their appetites, students retired to tables littered with chocolate candies (Tootsie Rolls, fun-sized Snickers bars, Hershey’s assortments, peanut M&M’s, and Milk Duds) to satisfy their stomachs while socializing with Oles and Carls alike.
