Road Trip - Yarra Valley

If you find yourself pondering if there is such a thing as TOO Much Chocolate I would highly recommend a visit to Melbourne's Yarra Valley.

Not only does it have beautiful rolling hills, stunning scenery, farm gate sales and the odd vineyard or six.... it also is the home of the
Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery.

Walking through the door of this newly built Chocolate factory, we are greeted by the sight of piles of chocolate curvature buttons.
And a rather friendly sign asking you to "Please use a Spoon when sampling".

Having booked for the HOT CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL - we were shown to a table where we were treated to 45 mins of chocolatey bliss. The festival is showcasing 31 different Hot Chocolate flavours in 31 days (actually it is 8 flavours per tasting changing weekly - so you could go back each week and try them all!)

Bookings for the tasting sessions are essential as they sell out quickly - but there is still much to tempt you.

Row upon row of glistening chocolates and special treats to buy -

.. and that is before you get to the Cafe!

After all that chocolate? -
I opted for a cleansing Cup of Tea!
