Cape Town For Chocoholics!


Love chocolate and want to indulge in its many offerings? Cape Town is home to many silky-smooth chocolate experiences that are bound to melt your heart.

From artisanal chocolatiers to immersive chocolate experiences, here’s a guide to some of the best chocolate experiences the Mother City has to offer:

Rapt – The Art of Indulgence

As its name suggests, Rapt is a confectionery heaven that offers several immersive experiences for visitors. You can build your own bar from milk, dark, white, or sugar-free chocolate and top it with layers of fun toppings. Rapt also has many quirky bonbons you can choose from, all covered in glorious chocolate. A must-try is their hot chocolate, covered in a marshmallow topping. The new establishment will also introduce chocolate-making workshops, which they will share on their socials.

Groot Constantia

Pair handcrafted, custom-made chocolate with award-winning wines from Groot Constantia, known as South Africa’s oldest winemaking farm. Unlike other wine estates offering chocolate and wine pairings, a chocolatier collaborates with a Groot Constantia winemaker, sampling the different varietals to create the perfect chocolate that enhances each wine’s flavours. They source the finest beans and ingredients for their chocolates, which are entirely natural and contain no artificial colourants, flavourings, or preservatives. The Groot Constantia Chocolates come in six flavours: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinotage, Shiraz, Rood, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Gouverneurs Reserve. These chocolates are also available for purchase at Groot Constantia.  The chocolate and wine pairing cost R200.
