Ms. Peacock Chocolatier – the delicious chocolate shop that provides us with all the sweet treats – now has a new home – in the Acre complex in Bowral!

Whether it’s Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, your birthday, or even simply Monday, there is never a bad time to enjoy chocolate and we are so lucky to have what must be Australia’s best chocolate shop in the heart of the Highlands!

Award Winning Chocolates

Making real your every Willy Wonka fantasy, the multi-award-winning business began in 2017, when local pastry chef and chocolatier Lisa Morley, opened the Ms. Peacock Chocolatier doors. Lisa’s own insatiable sweet tooth is her inspiration and it leads her to imagine – and create – the most unique, whimsical and mouth-watering sweet treats, that I like to share with a gorgeous glass of cool climate regional wines!

Unique Chocolate Creations

Take for instance, You Rock My World, two half-spheres that join to become a world globe, with layers of passionfruit caramel, Itakuja ganache, and sparkling praline inside. What is sparkling praline, you ask? A beautiful blend of crunchy hazelnut and almond praline loaded with Pop Rocks (remember the fabulous crackling candy from when you were a kid?).

The delightfully whimsical You Rock My World.

Then, there’s the Coffee Toffee Peanut Bar – blonde chocolate infused with Campos coffee with smashed toffee and roasted salted peanuts. It’s like it’s been sent from heaven.

Coffee Toffee Peanut is so delicious.

The Desire Bar is another fave. It layers caramel, orange and vanilla bean ganache with almond crunch brushed with marmalade and the taste is beyond words, really.

The Sea Salt Butter Caramels are also a huge hit, made with fine French chocolate and a beautiful balance of sweet and salty caramel on the inside, while the Honeycomb Smash Bar will

be a favourite with both the kids and the young at heart. Crafted to perfection, it’s handmade using local Southern Highlands honey, which is then smashed up and rolled through 38 per cent milk chocolate.

The Honeycomb Smash Bar will be a hit with kids and the young at heart.

Nut lovers will salivate over Lisa’s Peanut Brittle, made with pecan nuts and milk chocolate and elegantly dressed with a curling gold scroll (there’s a version made with peanuts and either milk or dark chocolate, too).

Lisa’s peanut brittle will be adored by anyone who loves nuts covered in decadent chocolate.

The Finest Ingredients

Lisa only uses the finest ingredients in her recipes, and the proof quite literally is in the pudding!

She sources her chocolate from France, where she says, “the Cacaofevier (the transformer of cacao beans into chocolate,) has a direct and sustainable relationship with the cacao growers, choosing the highest quality beans to create their couverture. With respect for traditional techniques and innovation, the result is a chocolate unmatched by others in taste and texture.”

Indeed, it is – with no added flavours, colours or preservatives and no vegetable fats, just cacao, cocoa butter and sugar each creation is just bliss. And of course, the visual indulgence is part of the experience! With beautiful shapes, colours and textures, every morsel made is dressed to perfection and lovingly adorned with iridescent sparkle, gold foil and elegant hand illustrations.

No matter what your age or tastes, you will find something to satisfy at Ms. Peacock Chocolatier and while you might not find every treat on the menu at all times – they frequently are sold out, or they might be seasonal – you will always find something to indulge yourself with!

Lovely Lisa, the owner and chief chocolatier at Ms. Peacock Chocolatier.
