When I started Rhoda Cocoa in my kitchen in Bray a few years ago, I was just happy to have found an outlet for my creativity in a job I loved. I never dreamed my chocolate bars would win awards. But here we are five awards later, with two of my chocolate bars having just been named 2019 Blas na hEireann finalists: Caramelised Pecan and Honeycomb & Salted Peanut.
Receiving these awards has made me one grateful and honoured chocolatier!
Great Taste Award, Morello Cherry & Pistachio
Blas na hEireann Silver Award, Morello Cherry & Pistachio
Blas na hEireann Best in Farmers Market, Morello Cherry & Pistachio
Great Taste Award, Honeycomb & Salted Peanut
Blas na hEireann Best in Farmers Market, Strawberry & Orange
Of course, what matters to me most is your experience of each bar. I think every day should be marked with a moment of delight—I find mine through crafting the chocolate bars which I hope will lead to yours.
