5 Hot Chocolates Worthy Of Getting Out Of Bed For

Get Your (Hot) Chocolate Fix

In the words of John Snow... Winter is coming. It finally got below twenty degrees this week, and with the temperature dropping it's the perfect time to wrap your hands around a mug of hot chocolate. But don't just go for any hot chocolate... To make coming out in the cold truly work your time, you'll want only the best.

Oh My, Waffle | Burleigh Heads

Don't just settle for one option when it comes to your Hot Chocolate, when Oh My Waffle in Burleigh Heads has three! Recently opened in early February and serving up a truly decadent array of Waffles, Milkshakes and Hot Chocolates, Oh My Waffle makes it a whole lot easier to get out of bed in the morning with their 'Campfire', 'Let's Get Chocolate Wasted' and 'Drop It Like It's Hot' Hot Chocolates. If sipping on decadent Hot Chocolate wasn't enough, cover the rim of your mug with cookies, Oreos or Red Velvet Cake batter, then add marshmallows, Nutella, more Oreos and more Red Velvet cake. Can't choose? Get all three... We won't judge!

Max Brenner

It's the original, all-time favourite dessert bar... And it serves up some of the best Hot Chocolates on the Gold Coast! You can always trust Max Brenner to deliver a Chocolate-y feast worthy of even the sweetest sweet-tooth, and they certainly don't disappoint when it comes to Hot Chocolates, serving up five different types in even more flavours to make your chocolate experience one to remember. Choose your drink type then pick whether you want it make with white, milk or dark chocolate, or add a unique flavour with Salted Caramel, Toffee, Mint or Coconut all available to spice things up a little. To make it truly decadent, don't forget to add marshmallows and whipped cream... It's a drink made in Heaven!

Bam Bam Bakehouse | Mermaid Beach

Not only does this super cute cafe do amazing breakfasts, lunches and pastries, but it does an incredible Nutella Oreo Hot Chocolate too! Priced at just $4 (which, let's be real, is pretty cheap for Hot Chocolate), this sweet, smooth blend of chocolate-y Heaven is topped with crushed chocolate and Oreos, and is the perfect way to start any day ending in Y! Top it all off with one of their house-made pastries, and you've got a totally delicious (and totally instagrammable) Sunday brunch!

Plantation House Cafe | West Burleigh

Finding an organic Hot Chocolate amongst all of that Chocolate-y goodness can be hard sometimes, but the team at Plantation House Cafe have done it, brewing up their famous Aztec Hot Chocolate that's perfect for just about any day. Made with twenty-five per cent South American Cacao, their famous Hot Choc is creamy without being too sweet, making it perfect for anyone craving a hot drink that's not too sweet this Winter.

Tella Balls Dessert Bar | Surfers Paradise

Did someone say Nutella?! This new Surfers Paradise dessert bar is all about that Nutella life, and they certainly don't skimp when it comes to their Hot Chocolates! Choose from a Belgium Hot Chocolate or their incredible Nutella Hot Chocolate (because who doesn't want more Nutella!?), then choose whether you want it made with white or milk chocolate and watch as they create chocolate-y heaven in a steaming hot mug. Grab it takeaway and enjoy Surfers Paradise Beach, or settle down with some friends and desserts for an evening in. Girls night anyone?

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
