Choccywoccydoodah / Bar Du Chocolat

The only thing I’ve been craving recently is a good ol’ hot choc to keep me warm, what with the miserable weather at the moment and all the flood warnings. I’m talking real melted chocolate topped with a mountain of whipped cream, marshmallows and a chocolate stick, not the usual instant powder stuff mixed with water.


My friend Steph and I decided a trip down to Choccywoccydoodah was in order for one of these, where my cravings were certainly fulfilled. I had been looking forward to this for days, and let me tell you it exceeded my expectations! Both being true Brightonions you’d think we’d be regulars at this little place but neither of us had ever been before. Surprising considering we’re both also chocoholics. I arrived soaking wet from the rain to find Steph tucked away in a little room full of heart shaped chairs and paintings of cherubs on the walls, patiently waiting for me so we could order!


Need I say anymore?


What I would do to scoop up that melted chocolate dribbling down the side again!


Once we had spooned up all of the cream the treasure was revealed; gooey marshmallows.




My only regret is that I didn’t save enough room for one of the Choccywoccy dipping pots but the Choccywoccy hot chocolate is a dessert in itself.



You can tell we weren’t disappointed! (I made a mess as always – you can’t take me anywhere!)



If you’re a fellow Brightonion or if you’re visiting for the day I would suggest you trying this place out. You can’t really go wrong with homemade chocolate cakes and a hot chocolate to die for! It’s a little hidden, tucked away behind the shops of Dukes Lane on Boyces Street.


If you’re still in a chocolatey mood after your hot chocolate it’s worth walking around the corner to their store on Duke Street where the most incredible cakes are displayed in the windows. I can never stop myself peering through the window to see the new creations when I walk past!
