If chocolate is your thing but you would like to be healthy, you'll love the Chocolate Apple Factory.
White chocolate Rockyroad Apple

Who could resist a fine fresh Pink Lady apple, dipped in creamy gooey caramel, smothered with chocolate and all sorts of decadent delights around the outside. Yuuuuum!

Set a little bit out of the way, yet only a 5 minute drive from Shepparton, you will arrive at the farmhouse door surrounded by old tractors and pumpkins drying in the field.

You enter the large shed to see a huge chocolate wheel flowing with creamy milk chocolate dripping from the wheel and a delightful cabinet filled with the most decadent looking chocolate apples on a stick, you have ever seen. But not just any apple, each one is a delicious Pink Lady apple dipped in caramel and then covered with chocolate and lolly treats.

They even have dipped apples looking like wedding gifts.

The lovely Vera cut one open for us to sample. The kids 'oohed and ahhed 'at all the right places as the caramel shell showed through outside the apple and covered in delights.

The caramel provided a creamy sweetness to the crisp sharpness of the apple.

Not for the faint-hearted, these things are absolutely huge! Take that hugeness and then add a huge dollop of Maltesers, marshmallows, chocolate M&Ms or other sweet delights and you are in for a treat.
Oh my goodness part of the selection we took home. Rocky Road and Maltesers with nuts.

The Chocolate Apple Factory also offers fruit liqueurs, fruit juices and jams with fresh fruit available also.
You can taste all the varieties to your hearts content

One of the nicest things that I enjoyed about the Chocolate Apple Factory was the beautiful juices all made from lovely variety of different apples. All with no artificial preservatives, colours or flavours - just pure apple juice.
Gorgeous variety of Apple juice is made from many varieties

If you would like to take some of the apples home from here, one of the lovely girls will hand-wrap for you, put ribbons on them and you can even have them gift packed in a little bag or box for taking home. However they also have individual chocolates for eating or taking home delights too.
Take a selection home for friends as well as your own indulgences

All year round (except February when they are closed).
