Sourcing: Cococo Chocolatiers uses only certified sustainable and fair trade couverture chocolate made with Rainforest Alliance Certified™ cocoa and cocoa butter to help drive positive change for farm communities in West Africa. We handcraft our delicious chocolate treats in Calgary with simple ingredients, no artificial preservatives, and no palm oil.
What is couverture? Simply put, couverture chocolate is the best quality chocolate, the type of chocolate that professional pastry chefs and artisan chocolatiers use. Couverture is made with added cocoa butter - fat derived entirely from the cocoa bean - and it's this extra cocoa butter that improves taste, texture and mouthfeel because it melts in the mouth easily. It also makes tempering necessary.
Storage: Our confections contain natural ingredients like real cream and dairy, and no artificial preservatives. PLEASE REFRIGERATE to maintain freshness. Please enjoy within 14 days. Product can be frozen.
