Show me your freckle

A chocolate freckle the size of a bread and butter plate.

Oh Yeah!!!

We went on a little adventure today to the Corowa Chocolate Factory, a cute little 'factory' nestled within the bowels of the old Flour Mills in Corowa.

There was lots of chocolate on display and for sale, the smell was heavenly and we bought up...

Confusingly, almost all the chocolate for sale is from the Junee Chocolate Factory, and not from Corowa at all.

 - some investigation via Google tells me they have the same business owners.. but I kinda think if I go to a factory, I'm expecting to buy produce from that factory, not the one 600 km away, or at least that it is obvious that what you are buying is not their own product. We didn't know what we bought was not produced in Corowa until we got in our car to drive away.

The main event for the day was Miss 9 making her own Chocolate freckle.
A thick disc of gorgeous silky Belgium chocolate is poured onto a plate and then the kids can got crazy topping them with sprinkles and coconut. It is then set in the fridge for 15 minutes and kiddo can take it home.

Do you see how big that is ?? As big as her head! All that chocolate for just $5 , that is good value!
There is a lovely coffee shop available and we scored a table right next to the heater, I could have easily sat there all day and watched people come and go, sipping my Chai Latte and pretending there was no housework waiting for me at home.

Where do you love to go, for an escape from your reality?
