Aventura Mall, Miami’s premier shopping destination, announces plans to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Chocolate Mousse at its annual Chocolate Festival on Sunday, Oct. 6 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Executive Chefs Rick Chiavari from Turnberry Ocean Colony and Danny Malone from Turnberry Isle Miami will lead the effort of beating the current 313 pound world record, while raising funds to benefit the Children’s Craniofacial Association, a national non-profit organization that addresses the medical, financial, emotional, and educational concerns of children craniofacial conditions.
Aventura Mall shoppers will have the opportunity to witness the record-breaking attempt and also taste the colossal dessert once it’s complete. Plus throughout the day, visitors will be delighted by elaborate chocolate displays and sweet treats from some of South Florida's most popular restaurants and chocolatiers. A special kids chocolate station, exciting raffle prizes and more surprises will provide entertainment for the entire family.
Visitors can tantalize their taste buds and help raise money for the Children’s Craniofacial Association by purchasing tickets at the event ($1 each ticket or $10 for 13 tickets) and exchanging them for treats.
