Just when you thought this horrific winter would be your undoing, the clouds part ways and offer you a sliver of mercy in the form of the Yarra Valley Hot Chocolate Festival. The Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, otherwise known as heaven on earth, will be open for festivities for the entire month of August with a new hot chocolate flavour every day. Yep, that's 31 flavours of hot chocolate in 31 days. The menus will be updated weekly, so make sure you plan your visit (or visits) accordingly.
Just to get your tastebuds going, one example of the hot choccies on offer is the "The Slam Dunk," where mini doughnut balls sit skewered on top of the beverage, waiting to be immersed in cinnamon and honey hot chocolate. There are also whispers about a competition where you can win your body weight in chocolate, so if you're swooning as hard as we are right now, make sure you drop in.
