The excellent chocolatiers behind Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Mornington Peninsula Chocolaterie are keeping us comfy with a delightful hot chocolate festival this August. Expect 31 tasty flavours, including a pink-infused dedication to Barbie, across the 31 days of August.
Hot Chocolate Festival
Now, they’ve created 31 new delicious and decadent flavours for you to indulge in. Each week in August, there will be a revolving menu of eight different flavours to try. All of them will feature milk, dark, white, ruby or caramelised white couverture chocolate, as well as a giant fluffy marshmallow and extra chocolate shot.
Indulge in adults only flavours like Salted Caramel Espresso Martini and dark chocolate French Connection, with cognac-filled red, white and blue balls to melt into the drink. Other tasty flavours include an Iced Vovo with choc iced donuts for dunking and Happy Vegemite, with handcrafted caramel koalas for you to melt. There’s even a puppachino carob creation for your dog to join in on the fun.
During the festival, there will also be hot chocolate tasting sessions. In a 45 minute, hands-on session, you’ll sip and sample eight delicious flavours. On top of that, you’ll get to choose from 50 ingredients to make personalised hot chocolates at home. Make three of your own “hot chocolate spoons”, take them home, add hot milk and voila! Your own decadent hot chocolate, suited to your taste. These tasting sessions run on select days, and bookings are essential. Each session is $24 per person.
Can’t make it to any of their three locations? No worries! There will also be DIY kits for you to order online and try at home.
