With the Easter weekend upon us we’ve put together a list of our favourite chocolate offerings from Melbourne.
The Finest Chocolate in Melbourne
Since the early 1840s when the first confectioners opened their doors, chocolate has held a proud place in Melbourne’s food scene. Over the years many beautiful chocolate boutiques have popped up, serving handmade artisanal delights and delicious new flavour combinations. With the Easter weekend upon us we’ve put together a list of our favourite chocolate offerings from Melbourne. Whether you prefer an 80% cocoa dark block, a decadent truffle or rocky road with all the bells and whistles, we’ve got you covered.
As one of the oldest chocolatiers in Australia, Haigh’s Chocolates has earned a spot on any chocolate list. This fourth-generation family-owned company turned 100 in 2015 and boasts an impressive selection of chocolate delights. Famous for their milk chocolate frogs, Australian flavours and chocolate Easter bilby’s, it’s no wonder you’re likely to find the store packed with locals and tourists alike in the lead up to Easter.

A slightly newer addition to the Melbourne chocolate scene, Koko Black has built up an impressive reputation for their beautifully designed chocolates. Their hot chocolates are legendary as are their single-origin chocolate bars, hampers and gift boxes. We love this year’s bright and modern Easter packaging.
If you prefer a healthier approach to getting your sweet fix Pana Chocolate offers a selection of delicious vegan-friendly raw chocolates. Handmade, hand packaged and proudly local, Pana Chocolate aims to be as good for you as it is for the planet. We recommend heading in store to try one of their incredible vegan desserts.
The undeniable master of all things drinking chocolate has to be Mörk. Catering to all taste buds from a junior blend made from 50 per cent cacao to the darkest 85 per cent single origin blend, you’ll find their delicious hot chocolate being served at most good Melbourne cafes. The Mörk concept store in North Melbourne is well worth a visit. If you’re feeling indulgent try the campfire choc, a multi-sensory experience that comes complete with a toasted marshmallow.
