The warm weather definitely hasn’t set in yet, so why not embrace the cold with a hot choccie from one of these local spots?

Paddock Bakery
Have you even had a hot choc if you haven’t had Paddock Bakery’s signature melted chocolate and torched marshmallow goodness?


Noosa Chocolate Factory
Drinkable Noosa Chocolate Factory chocolate? We’re there. The best part? They don’t charge extra for alternative milk or extra chocolate.


We know the weather’s cool, but it could never be cold enough for us to pass up a Cowch iced chocolate, topped with chocolate flakes.


Oh My, Waffle
Come for the loaded waffles or gooey cookies, but you’ll certainly stay for the hot chocolate – it’s borderline unbeatable.


Max Brenner
No one does chocolate like Max Brenner, so it only makes sense that their hot chocolate – served in their signature hug mug – be out of this world, too.
