Chocolarder’s rich and gooey golden caramel is made in house using the best Cornish sea salt and fresh Cornish cream. It’s then enrobed in spheres of Ashaninka 72% dark chocolate and rolled in cocoa powder. Look out for notes of green and red fruit and undertones of hazelnut, followed by the salty-sweet richness of the salted caramel. Little mouthfuls of luxury.

When you tuck into a Chocolarder bar, you can be content in the knowledge that it’s chocolate that doesn’t just taste good, it actually does good too, from bean to bar. What more could you ask for?
Mike sources these beans from Asháninka farmer co-operatives in the rainforests of Peru, with the help of environmental charity Cool Earth. The Asháninka are an indigenous people, living mostly in the Peruvian Amazon. Harvesting and selling cocoa beans provides them with a sustainable income, which is crucial to combat the challenges they face from illegal logging, mining and deforestation.
