Not much is better than a cup of hot chocolate come Winter, and the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company is well aware.
This August marks the return of the company’s Hot Chocolate Month, during which eight tantalising Hot Choc flavours will be released to tickle your tastebuds.
With two new flavours being announced each week, the first weekend kicks off with Go For Gold, a luscious caramelised white hot chocolate, and Honey Bee, a milk chocolate delight infused with their handmade Honeycomb.
Head Chocolatier Amy Sajinovic is keen for customers to be enchanted and surprised by the exotic combinations and have a sweet hit of nostalgia with the classics.
“Our chocolatiers and awesome café team have perfected some guest favourites from last year and developed some exciting new flavours,” Amy said.
“We were overwhelmed with feedback from last year and can’t wait for this year’s Hot Chocolate Month to return.”
Amongst the eight delicious flavours are Gone Nutty, a creamy milk Hot Chocolate with a shot of peanut caramel, and Orange is the New Choc, a dark Hot Chocolate with a zingy orange infusion.
The Barossa Valley Chocolatiers are also bringing back two crowd favourites from last year’s inaugural month, ‘Its Mint to be’ and ‘Hot Stuff’ which are both made using locally sourced ingredients.
For the kids, there will be a few colourful creations to choose from including, The Ruby Slipper made with a rare ruby chocolate and What’s Popping? a fun blue Hot Chocolate with a popping surprise.
The hot chocolates can be enjoyed on their own or teamed with the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company’s delicious handcrafted artisan chocolates that are made in-house.
All of the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company’s products are made in the state-of-the-art chocolate kitchen by a team of chocolatiers, where you can also get a sneak peek at how the chocolates are created through their expansive viewing windows.
Located in the Barossa Valley region, just outside Tanunda, this ever-growing tourist attraction is surrounded by wonderful vineyards, which produce the grapes for Vineyard Road, also available at the cellar door. There is also an ice creamery serving freshly made gelato.
The Barossa Valley Chocolate Company is open daily from 9-5pm. You can find it at 64 Burings Road, Tanunda 5352.
