Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar New York Grand Launch Event
EveLovelle was invited to dine as guest at Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar New York
A few days ago I attended Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar Grand Launch Event at Emporium. This chocolate restaurant has been around since emporium opened but is finally ready to launch publicly. We were excited to be given tickets to attend the event.
There was a chocolate fountain, candy floss corner and mini popcorn machine to start our palate.
I got some strawberries and marshmallows dipped in the chocolate fountain and a side of dark chocolate peanut butter milkshake topped with raspberry foam.
Deborah and Rakiza, both the operations manager and general manager addressed us, and brought about a little history behind Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar. Afterwards we continued with a speech by the guest of honour from Melbourne’s Chocoholic tours, Jessica Gilchrist. She broke the chocolate bar as a sign of cutting the ribbon.

Hot Chocolate (Dark)
Mini hot chocolate shots with a side of mini marshmallows stuck in a toothpick, how adorable.
Peanut Butter Cookies
My favourite dessert of the night was the Peanut Butter cookies. This was apparently gluten free, no flour, no butter, and I can’t crack the code of what’s within. I only know that the taste of the peanut butter was distinct and the amount of chocolate chunks was plentiful.
There was a lucky draw going on during the event and one lucky blogger received a corporate chocolate box valued at 69AUD. We on the other hand won a mini consolation prize, a crispy rice coated in chocolate.
There were more savoury items and other sweet tooth desserts such as cupcakes and various pralines that night. Thank you Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar New York for the invite, we enjoyed the delights you have prepared for us.
