Caution - Rocky Road AHEAD! For the month of May, the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie celebrate all things marshmallow and chocolate with the ROCKY ROAD FESTIVAL. 31 different flavours in all sorts of combinations of milk, dark or white chocolate. The big winners at this festival in previous years have included the Golden Gaytime, the Mint Madness and the kid's favourite Sour Worms. This wall of rocky road is pretty overwhelming to begin with! Once you get your bearings however, you can ask for a sample before you head home (that is if they make it all the way home!). Mamma's pick in her four pack - Valley Harvest (you can't get more Eastie than that!), the Turkish Delight, the Macaron Delight, and one for bubs - Pop 'n' Rock. Be sure to head outside once you have stuffed your face - the view is to die for and the hill is perfect to tire out a toddler!
This year you can also participate in a ROCK YOUR OWN WAY service, all day on a Fridays during the festival or on Saturday 25th. You get to choose from 50 amazing ingredients, your fave type of chocolate and then work alongside a European Chocolatier make your own rocky road block. Blocks are $9 each and you get to make it there on the spot. No bookings needed, just rock on down!
Mamma's special mention: rocky road is ALWAYS on offer at the Chocolaterie, not just in May and to this extreme. Never fear - the BEST thing that is on offer here is always the REAL hot chocolate.
