Head to the green hills of the Yarra Valley and warm up with a super-luxe hot chocolate
The Great Ocean Road and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie is famous for its month-long festival dedicated to hot chocolate in all its delicious forms. Every single day of August, a new and ever-more ambitious combination of chocolate and milk will be introduced: we're talking chocolate brownie, Nutella, cookies and cream and the more adventurous like salted caramel popcorn and bacon and maple syrup.
You'll get the chance to vote for your favourite hot choc, which means, yes, there will be plenty of tastings throughout the festival. You can even book into a tasting session of eight hot chocolate flavours for $18.
The Chocolaterie's head chocolatiers are busy finalising their new blends, but some of the limited edition flavours include the weird smashed avo and white chocolate number (yes, really), and more classic combos like pumpkin chai spice, cookies and cream and the Golden Gaytime inspired hot chocolate.
