'Chocolate Ball' for Arc of Howard County Nothing better to get you in the mood for dinner, than by getting a gander at the desserts first. There they were. All sorts of elaborate cakes, candy and pastries. All lined up on tables in the front lobby of the Kossiakoff Center at Laurel's Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. And all of them chocolate. Naturally. After all, this was the sixth annual "Chocolate Ball," benefiting the Arc of Howard County. And, if that wasn't enough, there were some student chefs, supervised by Mike Wagner, chef instructor at the Anne Arundel Community College Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute, demonstrating how to temper chocolate.

Good company and gobs of chocolate made for great chemistry at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab in Howard County. At the ARC of Howard County's third annual Chocolate Ball, 400 folks marveled at the 30 chocolate creations -- such as a basket filled with fruit, a Faberge egg on a tasseled pillow and a chocolate wedding cake being scaled by chocolate spiders -- displayed in the lab's Kossiakoff Center. This was a sit-down dinner where you had to leave room for dessert.
