Mmmm, Hot Chocolate Tasting Sessions are just the chocolatey flakes sprinkled over the foam of this scrumptious Hot Chocolate delight. With the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie releasing 8 new Hot Chocolate flavours a week, the only way to sample a wide variety of these truly irresistible delights is to enrol in one of their very special Hot Chocolate Tasting Sessions.
Hot Chocolate Tasting Sessions will be running every day of the festival. During these 'hosted' tasting sessions you will be treated to 8 different hot chocolate flavours and be given some expert tuition on how to make the perfect hot chocolate at home. Participation in one of these 45 minute Hot Chocolate Tasting Sessions is $18 per person and bookings are essential. Enrol through the Classes Page on the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie website.
The Hot Chocolate Festival will return again on Monday 1st August featuring a line-up of the most popular flavours from last year. There'll also be a bevy of new taste sensations, too. The ultimate choice, Chocolate Brownie flavoured hot chocolate will be back for sure, as will the Nutella and Cookies & Cream. Any flavour you can think of should be there, along with plenty of brand new, mouth-watering surprises, too.
All hot chocolates are served with an extra shot of milk, dark or white couverture chocolate, and an eye-popping giant handcrafted marshmallow.
However, in the ultimate sweet-tooth sensation the good folk at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie have issued a warning to chocoholics everywhere. This year, look out for the 'Showstopper Hot Chocolates.' The chocolate and the milk combinations will be going interactive! This is truly a surprise as no other details have been released. Best check in to the Facebook page regularly to find out more.
