Chocolate. It needs no introduction, because it’s everybody’s favourite thing. (Unless you’re one of those soulless people who claim they don’t like chocolate, in which case, stop reading because you’re not going to like where this article is headed.)
Here is where to find Perth’s best chocolate everything.
Chocolate Gelato With Chocolate Sauce | Chicho Gelato
If you haven’t been to Chicho and experienced their chocolate sauce tap, we suggest you visit and ask the staff if you can position your mouth directly underneath the tap, pronto. The warm chocolatey sauce is delightful, and the only thing that makes it better is when it's drizzled over Chicho’s decadent chocolate gelato.
Triple Chocolate Cupcake | Baked 180
Girrawheen (or anywhere, because they deliver)
A classic Belgian chocolate cupcake, filled with dark chocolate ganache, frosted with rich Belgian chocolate buttercream and sprinkled with crispy milk chocolate pearls. This is not a drill, Baked 180 is where chocolate dreams come true.
Vodka Chilli Chocolate Truffle | Margaret River Chocolate Company
Perth, Swan Valley and Margaret River
This truffle is the reigning Perth Royal Show Chocolate Champion. Yes, that’s right, at last year’s show the Margaret River Chocolate beat all the other chocolates. So you know it’s going to be mind-blowing.
The Belgian Spoil | Koko Black
Claremont And Perth CBD
You’ll be in a sugar coma after this, but it will be worth it. A chocolate taster plate with two chocolate pralines, chocolate cherry royales, a slice of Koko Black's signature chocolate cake (made from 70% dark chocolate crème, dark chocolate mousse and chocolate caramel), along with chocolate mousse and chocolate ice cream.
Belgium Chocolate Fondant | Tavolo
Chocolate fondant with chocolate soil AND salted caramel! Plus rhubarb compote, rose blossom pashmak (that's fairy floss FYI) and vanilla bean ice cream. No wonder we love Tavolo so much. It's well worth the 20 minutes it takes to prepare!
Lemon Myrtle Dark Chocolate Coated Macadamias | Kakulas Sister
This Urban List author had to put herself on a Kakulas ban after becoming addicted to these bad boys. Beautiful Australian macadamias, coated in dark chocolate infused with lemon myrtle. Give them a try, just try not to get addicted.
Chocolate Marquise | Measure
If you’re serious about chocolate then you need to go to Perth’s only true dessert bar, Measure. Chocolate marquise is a rich chocolatey dessert made with dark chocolate, topped with espresso sorbet and hazelnut praline... And guess what boys and girls, it also happens to be vegan. Which means you can order three.
Chocolate, Peanut And Salted Caramel Tart | Isle of Voyage
The dessert offering at Isle of Voyage is a beautiful sight to behold, and the chocolate peanut and salted caramel tart is no exception. We don’t really even need to explain ourselves here. Chocolate = good. Peanuts =good. Salted caramel = good. Well played, Isle of Voyage.
Signature Chocolate Cake | Rochelle Adonis
The team at Rochelle Adonis are the cake masters, and the Signature Chocolate Cake is their most popular cake. It’s a rich, dark cake layered with Valrhona dark chocolate ganache, doused with whiskey vanilla bean syrup.
Dark Chocolate Rocky Road | Gabriel Chocolate
Fremantle and Yallingup
One for the dark choccie lovers. The people at Gabriel’s give the classic rocky road a sophisticated twist, making it with their signature dark chocolate and lightly roasted and salted nuts.
Chocolate Truffles | Sue Lewis Chocolatier
You could get any type of chocolate truffle from Sue Lewis’ chocolate wonderland, but our tip is the Salted Caramel—70% Valrhona dark chocolate filled with soft buttery caramel, seasoned with pink Murray River salt.
Tim Tam And Coco-Pop Milkshake | Babooshka
If you’re in need of a chocolate hit, you may as well go all out and get one of the gourmet shakes on offer at Babooshka—namely, the shake made from classic chocolate Tim Tams and everybody’s favourite chocolate cereal, Coco-Pops.
