Win your body weight in chocolate

After a recent visit to the Yarra Glen Chocolaterie left me overwhelmed by choice and surprised by the volume of people visiting the store, they are now offering 31 varieties of hot chocolate in the 31 days of August, as if there wasn't already enough choice.

Giant freckles

I can only guess what the possible combinations could be, maybe we could all make up a few concoctions ourselves as recommendations or maybe a competition for the most interesting hot chocolate combination? I'm sure there would be more than a few of us willing to take over the kitchen at Yarra Glen Choclaterie in the name of research of course.

Has there ever been a white chocolate, hot chocolate with some melted marshmallows with a small amount of orange zest?

What ever the combination, I'm sure Yarra Glen Chocolaterie has done plenty research and perfected the 31 varieties on offer, maybe we're not needed after all.

Every hot chocolate is made from Belgian couverture chocolate and is served with your choice of milk, white or dark pastilles, a shot of hot chocolate and a hand crafted giant marshmallow.
Seven limited edition flavours will be released each week of which you get to vote on the best flavour and go into the draw to win your body weight in chocolate.

Free chocolate tastings

After you've finished your hot chocolate overlooking the valley and nearby mountains a free chocolate taste test is a must. There are 3 giant bowls filled with milk, white and dark chocolate chips which are delicious.

Glass windows through to the making area

Watch the chocolate makers creating edible master pieces through the large glass windows then work your way over to the great wall of chocolate, which as the name suggests is a wall full of chocolate blocks.

Chocolate counter

In the centre is a display cabinet with hundreds of individual chocolates just waiting for you to pick one.

After all of this indulgence you may want to join the kids running about on the lawn playing ball games or a walk around the Marrondah dam.

We visited the choclaterie and were very disappointed in the service. I would not recommend going there for lunch. Our desserts arrived before our main courses. The waitresses were slow, slovenly with cleaning tables and bordering on rude.

Hmmm, is it possible to have TOO much chocolate d'ya think?

We went today. Not overly impressed - poor service, lukewarm hot choc and burned breakfast. The cashier didn't even know that there was a choice between milk/dark chocolate with the hot chocolate and our drinks didn't come with the homemade marshmallows. When we asked for them we were given 2 chocolate marshmellows even though both our hot chocolates should have come with vanilla.

We went there on a Sunday, it was packed but service was moving. Best chocolate place we ever went to. Desserts are to die for.

We had an incredible time at the chocolatier about 4 weeks ago! Beautiful food, deserts, ice creams and of course chocolate! Could not fault the service and it was very busy. Very generous servings on everything too! Can't wait to go back.
