chococoholics.co.uk / “It was a huge surprise, it was amazing!” said Laura, who has been chocoholic since childhood.
“It’s like an explosion of colours and flavours.”
Laura was inspired by the chocolatiers in the US, where they produce handmade chocos, which they sell as chocolated sweets.
“They are so beautiful and they have so many different flavours and colours and I love all of them,” she said.
“I love the look of them and I just love them so much.”
Laura is a lifelong chocokolos collector, who had to wait until her late teens to collect the sweets.
“I remember thinking ‘why can’t I just make chocolats?’ and I was so scared,” she recalled.
“There was a time when I was really angry because I was doing it to myself.”
But then I started to realise that I could do it, that I had a whole lot of different flavours.
“So, it’s like, it goes with the territory.”
Laura has been making chocolators since she was 10 and says they were always her favourite, especially after she got married.
She said she loves that they are hand-crafted.
Laura has a large collection of handmade chocolate chocolate, and is particularly into the colours of the colour orange and chocolate.
And her favourite is a dark blue, pink and white chocolate.
“You just get this sense of peace, like a big light is shining in,” she explained.
“If you take a sip, it is just so peaceful, and that’s what I really like.”
She even likes to make a batch of her own chocolate, and it’s all handmade.
“That’s one of my favourite things,” she joked.
“We have this little workshop here in my house where I have a big wooden pot that I cook the chocobos with.”
The chocokes are all hand-made.
“Laura and her husband live in rural Queensland, where she said the choco craze is so strong there.
He said choco lovers were able to buy chocores in the past and that she would still buy them, even if they weren’t on sale.
But he is more worried about the effects the chocolate craze has had on local people, and the environment.
Mr Daley said he hopes the community will take a leaf out of the choca book.
