Using the best quality ingredients I can source. Taking close care and atention to every step of the chocolate production for creations that meet your love for chocolate. Made in Norway, making quality artisan chocolate.
Seasonal Chocolate Products
All the Deliciousness
Why seasonal production only? I create limited batches of carefully handcrafted chocolate using Cacao Beans as a starting point. Matching my chocolate creations to local products: creating exciting flavor contributions with fellow food crafters of the Rogaland region.
This takes time and research to be able to offer you my best selection every season. Art has an emotional power, to me is important to convey a gift of visual art for you to enjoy on each chocolate bar by giving them its own unique design.
Spread the Joy
Are you a fan of of chocolate and hazelnuts spread? Our award winners SPREAD THE JOY will have you on the train to flavortown. A favorite among many of our customers, not to mention my own!
Update 20.10.2020: Spread the Joy Hazelnuts and Spread the Joy Liquiorice are currently in production hiatus.
Bonbons are a fresh product. The star of the show are fresh creamy fillings of local fruits and flavors. This is the time of the year when I enjoy creating decandent ganaches to fill in Bean to Bar shiny chocolate shells for you to discover and indulge. my range of bonbons change every year and are available for a short period of time prior to Christmas and Easter times.

This is me
…a cacao worshiper
I have being working with chocolate for 14 years, I am Corina Gimenez, a specialty chocolate maker located in Norway. As a culinary educated and experienced professional, I use all my senses and knowledge to create recipes with exciting flavour combinations: bringing a new twist to the Food of the Gods.
I feel honoured to bring a new trade to the already vibrant culinary life of the Rogaland County in Norway: a place I have being calling home for the past 10 years. My cacao/chocolate knowledge and experience is deeply rooted to my heritage as I am a venezuelan, born in Caracas. This country is well known for its huge cacao diversity and 500 years of history in cacao harvesting. I have travelled far and wide across cacao plantations to learn first hand their processing practises and the farming life.
