It's Rocky Road Festival time again at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, 35 Old Healesville Road, Yarra Glen. Running for the whole month of May 2021, it's not too late to celebrate this classic Aussie treat. If you can't make it to the Chocolaterie, these rockin' creations can be ordered 1-31 May for delivery to your door. Cold and wet weather seems to marry perfectly with the consumption of chocolate.
European Chocolatiers will be giving the classic Aussie sweet treat a makeover throughout the entire month of May. Look out for a three-metre long cabinet in the showroom filled to the brim with Rocky Road temptations where you can pick and mix from 31 different flavours to purchase. You won't believe some of the 31 different flavours the Chocolatiers have dreamt up for this annual festival. There will be a special menu of Rocky Road inspired pastries, ice creams, sundaes, waffles and hot chocolates on offer from the newly renovated café.
Rocky Road devotees will be able to join the Rocky Road Festival Tasting Sessions which include 7 samples of special Rocky Road Festival flavours. Then create your very own Rocky Road block to take home using dozens of ingredients! Friday - Sunday session times are available throughout the Festival in May. See the Classes page for further details. Bookings are essential for these tasting sessions at $20 per person. You'll find the link to book on the classes page. Held on select days and times throughout the month-long Festival, the 45 minute tastings are dedicated to all things rocky including a hot chocolate, and ice cream. Tickets are already selling fast.
