The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens in Coral Gables is filled with more than 6,000 rare, exotic and colorful plants. It is a museum, a learning center, home of the American Orchid Society and a lot more. But next weekend it's going to taste good, too.

From January 24 to 26, wander the garden to discover one delicious chocolate adventure after another.

There will be cooking demonstrations and samplings as well as lots of activities for kids, where you can learn how chocolate is made and hundreds of ways to cook with chocolate.

There will be multiple chocolate stations set up for festival-goers, including the ChocoBeer Garden. ChocoWalk, ChocoFacts and ChocoSpa.

For the start, order a mouthwatering milkshake blended by Whip’n Dip at the Fresh from Fairchild Marketplace and start wandering around.

Love nostalgic movie treats? Then head to Cinema au Chocolat featuring "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" After that enjoy a pairing of Sweets & Spirits at the Mixology Lab, get pampered at the Choco Spa, create abstract chocolate spin art and experience chocolate face painting.

Here you can also learn more about the art of chocolate with lectures from all kinds of master chefs and chocolatiers.

At the end of the festival, guests can take home a cacao tree or a chocolate-scented orchid!
