Today is quite possibly the best day of the year. Why so? It’s World Chocolate Day! Although there are no rules on how to celebrate this day, we encourage you to celebrate by the consumption of copious amount of chocolate—because if you can’t do it on World Chocolate Day, then when can you do it?! To help you on your chocolate endeavours, we’ve complied this handy guide to get your chocolate on in Auckland.
Devour A Choccy Dessert (Or Two)
Today’s the day to indulge in a cheat meal—or should we say cheat dessert? We’ve rounded up Auckland’s Best Chocolate Desserts to give you some choc-spiration. Hot cocoa and s’mores? Don’t mind if we do. Choco Brûlée? Hells yeah! You’ll find it all here.
Sip On A Comforting Hot Chocolate
No winter (or World Chocolate Day) is complete without countless hot chocolates. They’ll warm you from the inside—and leave you with a smile on your dial (and possibly a milk moustache). We’ve rounded up The Best Places To Grab A Hot Chocolate In Auckland.
