If you love chocolate like we love chocolate, you’ll know that the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie has long been the place to go to treat yourself to an abundance of the sweet stuff.
Renowned for their month-long celebrations of ice cream, rocky road, and hot chocolates, the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie is back with their annual Brownie Festival – a delicious 16-day festival dedicated to the oozy, gooey, chocolatey treat.
Expertly crafted by the European Chocolatiers, the festival boasts 16 amazing varieties of limited-edition decadent Brownies, from the expected all the way to the unexpected. In the past, we’ve seen flavours from banoffee, bourbon pecan pie and Neapolitan, to even chocolate gingerbread and a vegan avocado nougatine brownie.
You can enjoy all of the flavours via indulgent tasting plates of Brownie Bites, and/or treat yourself to special creations like Brownie Dessert Pizzas, Brownie Sundaes, Brownie hot chocolates, Brownie inspired ice cream flavours and even a triple choc brownie doughnut via the cafe’s limited-edition brownie inspired dessert menu.
As well as experiencing brownies in every form imaginable, the festival will be hosting COVID-safe tasting sessions, where guests will have the opportunity to create their own signature brownie to take home. Whilst this is cooking you will sample six sensational Brownie Bites and enjoy a brownie ice cream.
For the brownie devotees, there is even an ultimate brownie tasting box featuring every single flavour. If you love your choccy treats but don’t think you need all 16 flavours, you can also create your own two or four-packs of the hand-made blocks to devour at home.
What a time to be alive!
The festival runs from 9am-5pm Saturday June 12 until June 27 and entry is free. The Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie is located at 1200 Great Ocean Road, Bellbrae. Find out more information by visiting the Facebook page or the website.
