There’s nothing like slurping on some liquid chocolate to beat the cold right out of your body. Luckily there’s a Hot Chocolate Festival coming to Victoria next month, so you’ll be able to slay those cold demons with a variety of chocolatey drinks.
So who’s behind this hot chocolatey extravaganza? The dessert masters behind Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery, of course. Throughout the entire month of August, YVCI will be offering 31 new delicious and exotic hot chocolate flavours for you to slurp and warm up with.
There will be a selection of eight flavours available at the YVCI café or outdoor kiosk each day throughout the festival, and each one will be served with an extra shot of hot couverture chocolate plus a handcrafted giant marshmallow. Hell yes—our fingers are warming up already.
There’s also a hot chocolate tasting session—it includes a 45-minute hands-on class, during which you’ll be able to sample a selection of eight amazing flavours. Plus you can choose over 50 ingredients to make three different chocolate-flavoured spoons, then just add hot milk at home and enjoy your own personalised brew. Bookings are essential for the class, so pop over here to get that sorted.
The Hot Chocolate Festival will run for the entire month of August, so mark it in the calendar.
