On our way back from Ruakaka yesterday, Simon and I stopped in at Warkworth to check out Chocolate Brown as I had been told I would love it. And love it I did :)
The place houses a café which also turns into a restaurant at night from Thursday to Saturday. We had a quick bite for lunch while we were there. Next door to the café is a shop containing gorgeous looking chocolates, sweets, fudge, wafers, truffles, pralines and powders to make your own hot chocolate from. I liked the couple of little clip boards they had around the shop which had recipes on them which you could help yourself to. Behind the counter was a big glass window through which you could see people making chocolates out the back. Simon and I both got ourselves some of their delicious fudge. I want to come here again so I can try everything else – particularly the truffles and chocolate wafers.
