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 toffee apple, black forest, lamington, berry cookies and cream, Turkish Delight, marbled milo, the classics, and mint madness.

The flavours we recommend trying out include the golden gaytime, perfect pistachio, strawberry cheesecake, biscoff bliss, and Neopolitan. There’s also espresso martini, peanut butter and jelly, caramel obsession and burnt butter and sea salt.

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.
