Why Cook With Craft Chocolate?

Single-estate craft cooking chocolate tastes better, is easier to work with and is free from additives and preservatives.

Better Flavours

Cocoa Runners cooking chocolate packs more flavour into every single bite. So if you’re looking to improve your bakes – for richer cakes, gooier brownies and more intense cookies – you need look no further. Making the simple to swap to single-estate cooking chocolate and cocoa powder couldn’t be easier and it will improve your bakes in an instant.

Easy To Work With

Our cooking chocolate buttons are incredibly easy to work with – they’re designed to melt quickly and evenly, and weighing them out couldn’t be simpler.

Natural Ingredients

We believe in keeping things natural. Just as we choose to bake with simple flours and free range eggs, we believe that cooking chocolate should be free from chemicals and preservatives. Unlike other cooking chocolates, you won’t find any mysterious ingredients listed on the back of our packaging.

Easy To Store

Our cooking chocolate and cocoa are easy to store.  So you need never worry about wasting any.  All our grab bags of chocolate come in resealable bags, so you can be confident that, so long as you store them in a cool, dry place, the chocolate will remain fresh and ready to use.

Transparent, Fair Sourcing

We believe in telling you about the regions and the farms our cocoa comes from.  Our Madagascan cooking chocolate is made by Menakao from cocoa that is harvested from the finest producers in the mineral-rich Sambirano Valley. Menakao is one of only a handful of companies making chocolate at origin in Madagascar.  It trades directly with farmers, and by cutting out middlemen it is able to pay the farmers up to five times the premiums that Fairtrade beans would command.

    A great all rounder, to eat to bake. A lovely smooth flavour that is dark and intense with not a hint of bitterness.

    These chocolate buttons are THE best for drinking chocolate! Having tried other buttons, these have the fruitiest flavour with a slight sharpness. Soften 30g of chocolate buttons in your mug (go large!) with boiled water covering them. After about 30 secs, or slightly longer, carefully pour the water away. Whisk in hot (full fat) milk. Then add a generous dollop, or more, of freshly whipped double cream…..totally divine! My absolute favourite and a real treat. Buttons come in a handy recyclable bag for storage. 5* from me 🙂
