Schokolake – DIY chocolate

Schokolake is a chocolate shop/resort in Miaoli county. Entry is 100NT, but that can be used against the cost of anything you spend there. And you will spend money there because the chocolate is too delicious not to.

DIY chocolate costs 220NT. There’s not much to it – just pour the chocolate into the mould and wait for 45 minutes while it sets. Although it’s quite tasty chocolate, it’s sweeter than I expected from the colour, and tasted better in liquid form than after it was set. I much preferred the chocolate truffles (40-70NT each) or the pure chocolate cubes (250-300NT for a tray, I think).

While you’re waiting for your chocolate to set, you can walk around the gardens, snack at the cafe or even rent a hotel room for a few hours. It’s in a pretty location amongst the mountains of Miaoli, but other than spending money, there isn’t much else to do here. However, for a chance to stock up on good quality chocolate, the trip was worth it.
