Chocolate in all its forms is something I, along with many others, like to indulge on special occasions.
The handcrafted artisan chocolatier, Koko Black, is celebrating all natural, local ingredients from across the country with their new limited edition Australian Honey Praline collection.
All of Koko Black’s delicious chocolate is 100% natural with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Koko Black are celebrating being all natural with the new Australian Honey Pralines, championing our homegrown honey farmers with ingredients harvested from local hives in Margaret River, WA, the Blue Mountains, NSW, the Sunshine Coast, QLD, and Melbourne, VIC.
Like Koko Black, Taste of Australia host and Masterchef Australia alumni, Hayden Quinn, is passionate about celebrating natural and locally sourced ingredients. The shared sentiment has seen the culinary star collaborate with Australian owned and made Koko Black for its spring collection launch, which includes the release of the four new limited edition Australian Honey Pralines.
“Some of the best ingredients in the world come from our own backyard, and the new Koko Black Australian Honey Pralines use honey harvested from local hives,” says Quinn. “There’s also no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives in Koko Black chocolate, so needless to say I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit!” he adds.
Adding to their all natural credentials, Koko Black is also proud to support 100% sustainably sourced cocoa by partnering with Cocoa Horizons, an impact-driven program that supports cocoa farmer prosperity by helping to build self-sustaining farming communities.
