Chocolate Cafes & Dessert Bars
Sydney is known for its great cafe's and bars. But did you know they have some of the best chocolate cafes in the world? Feast your eyes on these three:

The Choc Pot:

The Choc Pot in Sydney CBD is one of the hottest dessert bars to open its doors. This is the place to go if you want to drown your sorrows in gooey, sweet, melted chocolate. They are very affordable and do the best rock salt caramel ice-cream too. It's a great place to bring friends and share plates.
The Regent Place Store is open: MON to WED: 12:00pm - 10:00pm, THURS & SUN: 12:00pm-10:30pm, FRI & SAT: 12:00pm-11:00pm.

Max Brenner has been pumping with customers since they opened their doors; and it's easy to understand why. They have their own in store chocolate shop and then dessert menu is to die for. Bring friends and try the 'fondue for two'. The only downside is that their chocolate is VERY sweet. Some people like a little less sugar in their chocolate. But sweet tooths will surely relish this place.

San Churro:

San Churro do loads of lovely desserts, but you can't go past the main attraction; the crispy fried Churros. They're now making delicious 'Red Velvet Churros' (pictured) which is a unique addition to the menu. The classic 'Churros for two' comes with scrumptious caramel and chocolate dipping sauces.

Chocolate Shops
Sydney has some a great range of chocolate shops to indulge your senses. These top three are sure to get you spending.

Haigh's QVB
Haigh's QVB

Haigh's Chocolate shops are some of the best Sydney has to offer; especially when it comes to gift boxes and packs. These are premium quality, fine chocolates that come at a higher cost than the cheaper brands. But remember, you are paying for handmade, beautifully packaged, melt-in-your-mouth treats. We all need a little luxury in our lives from time to time, so go on and treat yourself or that special someone to some unforgettable boutique chocolates.

Koko Black:

Koko Black make great boxed chocolates and bars. Whilst they are not cheap, you are paying for good quality. When gift shopping try their 'Signature Keepsake' boxes containing 20 pieces for $49.00. The box is stunning and you can keep it and refill it which is lots of fun. Otherwise why not drop into their Strand Arcade store and treat yourself to some handmade goodies? It's worth that extra hour in the gym.

Oh! Boo:

Oh Boo has taken over from 'Boon' chocolates. They've opened recently in Barangaroo and have been getting rave reviews. Their premium chocolate has that all-important velvety texture. They also sell beautiful gift boxes that come at a high price. Save this one for a special occasion; they're great for weddings. While you're there be sure to check out their pralines and brittles too. Yum.
You can shop online to avoid the rush; it's free delivery for orders over $75.

Jamie Oliver is well known for his healthy recipes; but this tart is far from it. Everyone loves a good chocolate-raspberry combo, and this one is sure to satisfy. Be careful though; one serve packs a whopping 455 calories.

You may remember this one from the last season of Masterchef.
Sometimes it's the simple recipes that are the best.
