Chocolate shopping in Sydney

Glass tea cups and fancy moulds make a chandelier

Read the papers whilst you sip

After walking around the Kirribilli Markets we went for a coffee after and whilst we waited to be served noticed a chocolatier next door, so after waiting too long we moved our group into the communal table of the tiny chocolate shop.

Order a coffee and you also get a couple of squares of whatever chocolate bar they have currently opened.

Coco Chocolate is an award-winning chocolate shop that specialises in single origin chocolate bars.

There is also a large range of chocolates packaged for gifts. Truffle collections, liqueur cherries coated in chocolate, praline golfballs, an infusion collection and even a collection titled the Tattoo Love chocolates where the tattoo pattern on the chocolates are the most recognisable of the older style tattoos, the type you used to see on the arms soldiers and sailors.

If you want to try any of the chocolate bars before you buy they always keep some opened.

We ordered coffees and hot chocolate and drooled over all the wonderful chocolates in various shapes, sizes and hundreds of flavours.

It was like being back in Paris.Beautiful packaging, we bought some for gifts. How can anyone resist handmade chocolates.

I wish I lived around the corner so I could pop in anytime and work my way through all the flavours, I wonder how long it would take me.

Measuring spoons made to make you fall in love with the person you are sharing your chocolate with.These chocolate coated almonds are hard to resist.

Coco Chocolate was established by Rebecca Kerswell who studied design in Sydney. The first store she opened was in Scotland but now she is back and the Kirribilli store is the first in Sydney, followed by a second in Mosman. To learn more about Rebecca and her classes in chocolate making, go to her website.

If I was staying in Sydney any longer I would be enrolling in the chocolate classes.
