Returning for its fourth installment, the Smooth Festival of Chocolate is unleashing its bag of goodies on The Rocks, Sydney this Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August.

The sugar high begins from 10am as favourites like Gelato Messina and Black Star Pastry dish up their classics alongside a smorgasbord of lesser known delights.

With Sydney’s photogenic harbour as its backdrop, tuck into Greek Donuts (Loukoumades) from Mel Meli, Dos Churros’s signature Spanish doughnuts, Italian Gingerbread and Nougat, the French-leaning Queens Pastri House, Brooklyn Boy Bagels, Yummy Dutch Pancakes, Keski Pan - Mexican Patisserie and a range of vegan and gluten free sweeties from Donut Papi’s.

It’s not all about sweets, either: there’s chico rolls over at Daisy’s Milk Bar, German style hot dogs from Fristz's Weiners Caravan, Gourmet Gozleme and more.

New additions to the line-up include The Baci Experience, demonstrating how Italy’s loved chocolates are made, A Taste of the Rocks highlights a handpicked selection of what the precinct has to offer, and wine tastings by Cellar Masters.
