World Chocolate Day is coming up this weekend - I know, can you believe it?! So, to celebrate, we thought it would be fitting to highlight some of the best places on the Gold Coast to get all up in that chocolatey goodness we crave every.single.day. From waffles to delicious hot chocolates, these are the places where you can celebrate all things...CHOCOLATE! Just bring me back a doggie bag, ok? Thanks.
Cowch Dessert & Cocktail Bar
The OG's on the dessert bar scene, Cowch have you covered when it comes to all things sweet. For World Chocolate Day and pretty much any day ending in 'y', we can't go past their Dessert Pizzas! A stand-out is their Coa-Coa Crunch, with a dark chocolate base, topped with peanuts, Tim Tam, crumble and salted caramel - delicious!
If you prefer to ring in the weekend with a good cocktail, Milky Lane know just how to make us come back for more! Take your love for all things sweet to the next level with their Reese's Peanut Butter Martini! We're talking 42 Below Vodka, Mozart Chocolate Liqueur, Peanut Butter & cream with a chunky chocolate rim and Reese's chocolate. Tempting, no?
Oh My, Waffle
Celebrate the sweetest day of the year with a next-level waffle from Oh My, Waffle! Forget your average syrup & cream combo when you can go all out with something like The Wafflenator! Indulge in a golden waffle topped with crushed Tim Tam's, Whittaker's Creamy Milk Chocolate, Maltesers, ice-cream & a waffle cone drizzled with salted caramel sauce. Absolute sorcery!
Night Quarter has a bit of everything, making it a one-stop-shop for everyone, no matter what your taste buds are screaming out for! But if there's one thing we'll be running towards, it's their famous Funnel Cakes! Think a crispy funnel cake and vanilla bean ice-cream covered in chocolate sauce, melted chocolate, chocolate pieces and crushed nuts! You can thank us later.
There's nothing quite like a comforting hot chocolate on a cold winter's morning and Paddock Bakery know exactly how to get it right! Paddock's Hot Chocolate is made with real melted chocolate and topped with torched soft marshmallow! You're never too old for a hot choccie and, did we mention that people take their dogs there?! What could be better than sipping on a hot chocolate looking at a super cute doggo?! We're keen.
