Stopping off at the Chocolate Festival this weekend was a must for any chocoholics or anyone with a unhealthy obsession for sweet treats. Whilst there was plenty to learn and see at the various workshops and tasting sessions, there was also plenty to sample and purchase to curb any chocolate or sweet craving.
I made it my mission of the day to take part in “The Best Brownie Ever Trail”, which included sampling various brownies from different vendors and then rating my favourite (hard I know!) There was a clear winner for me at Batch Bakery, who served up ‘The Elvis Brownie’, which included some of my sweet favourites, bananas and peanuts (heaven in a bowl).
As a VIP guest, I also had the pleasure of spending some time at the Chocolate Spa (yes I thought this could get messy!) But in fact it was actually the opportunity to have some chocolate eye make-up applied (no I didn’t want to eat my eyes afterwards!) And my Mum (my partner in crime for the day), had a chocolate hand massage, which smelt divine!
The amount of chocolate at each stall was unimaginable, I didn’t know chocolate could come in so many forms, and we were helped to take it all in with a free glass of presecco and cheeky shots of chocolate baileys! With so much on offer, it was difficult to limit your choices and purchases!!! But it definitely was a worthwhile trip for any chocolate or sweet lovers in search of something slightly different! Well done Hubby for thinking of me on this little adventure!
