THIS ded­i­cated choco­late cafe’s rocky road is so pop­u­lar, it’s no won­der Hah­n­dorf’s stores have opened all over Vic­to­ria.

The Pak­ing­ton St store is stick­ing to the orig­i­nal ver­sion of this clas­sic, of­fer­ing a rocky road made of choco­late, marsh­mal­lows, nuts and co­conut. IN the cou­ple of years since Mule Cof­fee Shed opened, it has be­come known lo­cally for its spin on tra­di­tional food of­fer­ings and its rocky road is no ex­cep­tion, with Mule re­cently un­veil­ing a de­con­structed twist that in­cludes donuts, Nutella, marsh­mal­lows, crushed rocky road, choco­late bis­cuits and straw­berry top­ping. THE Great Ocean Road Cho­co­la­terie took rocky road love to new heights ear­lier this year when it hosted a rocky road fes­ti­val of­fer­ing more than 30 dif­fer­ent rocky road flavours.

Although the fes­ti­val has ended, the Cho­co­la­terie has white, milk, and dark choco­late rocky road va­ri­eties avail­able all year round. As part of its Straw­berry Af­fair fes­ti­val, a spe­cial straw­berry flavour will also be avail­able for a lim­ited time from Oc­to­ber 20. GEE­LONG’S much-loved donut des­ti­na­tion reg­u­larly fea­tures rare takes on rocky road in its reg­u­lar monthly ro­ta­tion of donut flavours. This month’s of­fer­ing is the ‘ghost’ rocky road, which in­cludes white choco­late, pop­corn, goji berries, and marsh­mal­low. THESE sweet su­per stores of­fer up hun­dreds of va­ri­eties of choco­late and lol­lies, and also host a num­ber of dif­fer­ent rocky road flavours. The cur­rent se­lec­tion in­cludes flavours such as milk choco­late, white choco­late, dark choco­late, mint and salted caramel.
