The Chocolate Extravaganza was held Thursday at the Joplin Holiday Inn convention center.
The event is a fundraiser to benefit the Dream Team, a program granting last wishes for terminally ill people.
The event featured an array for chocolates, cakes and other desserts participants could sample or buy.
There was also a silent auction and a judging contest for the best chocolate.
The local Dream Team has granted more than 80 requests since 2010.
