Loco for Cocoa Loco Brownies

Claiming to be crazy about organic chocolate, award winning artisan chocolate company Cocoa Loco was established in 2005 by young couple Sarah and Rory. Their mission was to create simple delicious confections that would leave minimal impact on the environment. Initially Sarah Payne started selling her organic homemade brownies on eBay from her home in Partridge Green but their kitchen became so full of chocolatey goodness they had to expand.

Their dedication paid off and in 2008 they received The Times Organic Hero Award.

A family affair, Cocoa Loco bake everything in the kitchen from scratch and use only simple handmade ingredients in their products. Their chocolate is indeed certified organic by the Soil Association and ethically traded. Their organic cacao is grown in gaps in the rainforest canopy, not clear-cut areas.

They produce a range of chocolate goodies including brownies, chocolate bars and truffles and home baking kits if you fancy taking a more hands-on approach.

Their truffles are a must and I decided to try out their Brownie Mini Bites, sold at Abel and Cole and Chocolate Anzac cookies also available at Abel and Cole.

The brownie cookies are touted as the perfect alternative to a large piece of cake and they really are delicious. They melt in the mouth and are very rich and sweet so the bite-size nibbles are a welcome treat to the taste buds. They have a light buttery texture and if you’re a brownie fan like myself, you might find yourself reaching for another bite.

They contain only sugar, salted butter, cocoa solids, wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, soya lecithin and vanilla powder.

An Anzac cookie is sweet biscuit popular in Australia and New Zealand, produced using rolled oats, flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, baking syrup and boiling water. It is claimed the cookies were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients keep well during transportation.

The Cocoa Loco offerings have the addition of a sweet chocolate button on top. The biscuits are lovely and crisp. You can really taste the oats and golden syrup. They are sweet and chewy and I have to say, better than your average biscuit. It’s nice to have an oaty biscuit with a hint of chocolate and I continue to be a fan of Cocoa Loco products.
