The annual month-long Rocky Road Festival has returned to the Surf Coast for May

A whole festival dedicated to the treat with the perfect mix of sweet, crunch and squishy marshmallows.

Running for a whole month and making all your sugar-filled dreams come true, the famous Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie’s Rocky Road Festival is making its return once again this May along with all the mouth-watering Rocky Road sensations from 1 May until 31 May.

Rocky Road Festival

  • The Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie’s annual Rocky Road Festival returns
  • There will be 31 weird and wonderful flavours on offer
  • The festival is running all of May

Keep up with the latest food and booze news via our website.

Because we all know Easter isn’t long enough, for the entire month (yes all 31 days!) of May, the European Chocolatiers will be giving the classic Aussie Rocky Road treat a makeover and creating 31 different flavours of the treat which will take form as hand made blocks, bars, truffles, ice creams and desserts using couverture chocolate with seasonal and exotic ingredients.

For those just keen on a good old block of Rocky Road, there will be a three-metre long cabinet completely filled with Rocky Road temptations. Festival-goers can pick and mix from the 31 different flavours, including the likes of Oriental Brittle, Caramel Mudcake, Turkish Toblerone and Strawberry Margarita, Honeycomb Macadamia, Tahitian Lime and Chilli, and so much more.

You can even get a Rocky Road Festival Box which features every single flavour, or a limited-edition 12 pack.

Yum, just yum.

And because the GORC believe in an equal world, this is a festival that caters to any dietary requirement, so you’ll find flavours without nuts, gluten and/or dairy for any fan of the marshmallow stacked treats. How goods that?!

There are also tasting sessions being held for $24 per person to sip, taste and devour all things rocky and make your very own dream rocky road to take home.

Anything that celebrates the marshmallow, nut, cherry and chocolate creation of the Rocky Road sounds like a pretty good time to us.

The Rocky Road Festival will go from Sunday 1 May until Tuesday 31 May at the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie in Bellbrae. Find out more information by visiting the Facebook page or the website.
