Take a journey to Daylesford’s Chocolate Mill
5 minutes out of Daylesford on the Midland Highway at the base of Mount Franklin sits the Daylesford Chocolate Mill.
This gorgeous cafe and chocolate Mill, make hand-made Belgian couverture chocolates. That are not only delicious but also have a great variety. These include some plain flavours for children that don’t enjoy fillings.
It’s not only a great place to snack on decadent chocolates but the cafe also sells a great selection of slices, coffee and amazing hot chocolates.
The Chocolate Mill has a quaint little playground, some seating both outside and inside, a scenic dam with its own pelican statue. Our children love walking around outside having a look at the dam and the statues around the property.
But the favourite thing for them to look at is inside The Chocolate Mill’s retail store that is situated separately to the cafe. From the retail store, you can look through the window to watch the chocolates being made. Our youngest would stand there for ages watching them work. Then wander over to the display case to choose his favourite chocolate (or two)
The Chocolates are Palm oil-free, made with 100% Callebaut Belgian Couverture chocolate. Made with the finest cocoa beans, they use natural bourbon vanilla and 100% pure cocoa butter. You can taste the difference. Unlike supermarket chocolate, a couple of pieces of the decadent flavour is enough to satisfy. We always though grab some extra to take home for later as well.
Callebaut Belgian Couverture chocolate is Fairtrade certified chocolate. They also claim to have a huge range to accommodate different dietary restrictions with vegan-friendly, alcohol-free, glucose-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free chocolates available.
Next time you head to Daylesford, make sure you head towards Mt Franklin and find the Chocolate Mill, you won’t be disappointed.
