Chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate! That’s what you are guaranteed to find at this year’s Chocolate Festival. Heaven for any sweet tooth fanatics, this two-day chocolate extravaganza takes place over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September (10 am to 4 pm daily) at The Woodmill in Stellenbosch.
Expect to find a chocolate line up of gastronomical proportion. The usual plus a handful of artisanal gems and more. Oodles of chocolate, macaroons, decadent chocolate brownies, indulgent doughnuts, deliciously creamy (and dreamy) ice-cream, liquorice, marshmallows, candyfloss and so much more. There’s no end in sight for the sweetness overload at this not-be-missed event. Balancing out the sweetness will be a selection of non-chocolate offerings. These range from charcuterie, hamburgers, pizzas, artisanal cheeses and bread and so much more. The young ones will be kept entertained with a movie lounge, face painting and popcorn. While the little ones are kept entertained in a supervised area mom and dad can relax and unwind with live music, gin, bubbly, wine and craft beer offerings.
A fun family filled day to the Winelands with something in store for young and old. Tickets cost R180 per person and include entry and a goodie bag. Entry for children under 18 is R50 each and includes popcorn and a Slush Puppy. Pre-booking via www.webtickets.co.za is essential as tickets are limited to 2 500 per day and they sell out fast!
