The Yarra Valley Chocolaterie has wicked chocolate all year round, but come August - it is all about the HOT CHOCOLATE and in all flavours imaginable. We are talking White Chocolate Mermaid, Freckle Head, Jolly Swagman, Black Adder Licorice and a Cookie Monster and 27 others! These limited edition flavours are released in batches every 8 days and run for the entire month of August. A hot choc come with some accompanying treats, extra shot of chocolate and most cases - a hand crafted marshmallow (there was no chance Mamma wasn't sharing hers!). There is also a smaller kids version, served in it's own milk bottle but there is only one flavour choice per week - Frog in a Pond was a hit last year. Can't decide which flavour to choose - book in for a tasting session! The program runs for 45 minutes and are EXTREMELY POPULAR so you must book in online!
Mamma's special mention: Speaking of popular, the entire festival was a hit last year with the carpark filling up to the brim on weekends! Mamma's advice - there are not bookings available for the cafe - get in EARLY and have a hot chocolate for breakfast!
