How does a morning spent hitting the best chocolate spots in Brisbane sound? Sounds like the best morning of my life. Meeting at the epicentre of Brisbane, the Queen Street Mall, this three-hour tour with Food will take you to some of the best chocolate places in the city.
It is not just eating the chocolate that is the highlight of the tour. It is learning about the history, how chocolate is produced and the different types of chocolate available. You will taste your way through the complex flavours and unique types of chocolate on offer.
When it comes to chocolate, it is my personal opinion that nobody does it better than Lindt. Their salted caramel dark chocolate is to die for. There is an entire store dedicated to Lindt chocolate in the DFO in Brisbane, full of special prices and flavours you cannot buy at the supermarket.
Sadly, Brisbane does not have one of the Lindt cafes that are in other cities. So my idea would be to go to Lindt, buy up some hot chocolate and a selection of blocks, and check out these recipes. Make your own cafe in the comfort of your own home.
Stamford Plaza hosts some beautiful high teas, the perfect setting for a hens party, baby shower, mothers day or even just an excuse to have a spot of tea and a scone.
But did you know they also hosted a Chocolate High Tea Buffet? An entire buffet featuring shaven, melted, solid and infused chocolate items in dark, white and milk chocolate. Their motto is 'A life without chocolate is no life at all'. Agreed.

Where: Corner of Margaret and Edward Streets

I do heart brownies. Big time. My husband surprised me with a mix box of these brownies for Mother's Day and they were INCREDIBLE. Turkish Delight Brownie was my personal favourite. Closely followed by salted caramel.
Dedicated to gooey and delicious brownies, I Heart Brownies, have twelve types of brownies to choose from seven days a week. They also do dessert and coffee. All brownies are handmade daily using a secret recipe, this is what makes them so special. Plus their gift wrapping is out of this world for a present.
