What's better than a box of chocolates? A whole month of Hot Chocolate Festival of course! It's all happening for the whole month of AUGUST 2019 from 9am to 5pm every day at the renown Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, 35 Old Healesville Rd, Yarra Glen.
FREE to attend, European Chocolatiers have created an amazing lineup of 31 hot chocolate flavours over 31 days of August. On top of that there's a changing menu of 8 limited edition hot chocolates each week and flights of mini hot chocolates to try. What to expect? How about interactive concoctions with melting chocolate discs, chimney stacks and syringes to infuse flavours, plus oreo coated churros, giant macarons and crispy French crepes ?
