SAFFORD — The Safford Library’s partnership with the U of A Cooperative Extension picks up again Wednesday with two cooking demonstrations.

Chocolate Time will focus on healthy treats for Valentine’s Day, including plant-based brownies, gluten-free brownies, chocolate covered freeze-dried fruits and chocolate cream cheese mints.

“Their classes have a ton of tips, just so much information,” said Leslie Talley, library supervisor. “It’s a demo you watch, you can try some of it hands-on and you get to taste.”

The class will take place at 10 a.m., and then repeat at 5:30 p.m., in the library’s programming room. There is no cost to attend or participate.

The classes will take a break in March, but things pick back up in April at the library when the Cooperative Extension will share recipes for sweat breads in April, and cooking with onions in May.
