Coracao Confections

The Almond Coconut Dream has had a nearly 5 year love affair with Coracao customers and our team. It was one of our original items and is our take on the classic Almond Joy.

I used to love the original Almond Joy, Snickers, Reese’s Pieces, M&M’s, Rolos and many more classics. Though after many years of eating junk food I began to get fat, have acne, feel “spaced out”, feel drained & low energy, was getting sick a lot and felt a lot of shame & guilt about my diet and body.

One of the books that changed both Matthew and my destiny is Naked Chocolate by David Wolfe.  That was when the light bulb went off and we realized that pure chocolate is actually a remarkably healthy food- That it is one of the highest antioxidant foods ever tested, has a ton of iron, is rich in magnesium, chromium, zinc and contains both the feel great “love” & “bliss” chemicals. That contrary to popular belief chocolate or cacao is one of the most healthy and amazing foods on the planet. It’s no wonder the Mayans referred to it as “The food of the gods”.

The problem is that most chocolate on the market is poor quality, highly processed, sourced unfairly, full of cheap fillers like corn syrup, refined sugar, processed milk powder, preservatives, artificial colors and flavors. Unfortunately because of this, chocolate has unfairly gotten a reputation for being unhealthy.

Since reading Naked Chocolate we have been on a quest to bring you the most healthy & delicious chocolate possible. By using the best ingredients on the planet and merging it with our long lost love for  nostalgic chocolate classics, we bring you revolutionary chocolate treats that leave you feeling great after eating them and that truly satisfy you.

The Almond Coconut Dream was one of our first important developments. They are made with organic coconut, fresh scraped vanilla beans, and a touch of Ojio raw & clear agave nectar. They are then hand scooped, topped with organic, raw almonds from the Berkeley farmers market and enrobed in our 81% dark Peruvian chocolate. That’s it. Oh and the almonds are soaked, sprouted and dehydrated which makes them even easier for your body to digest and makes them extra crunchy and delicious.  Click here to get your Almond Coconut Dreams and make your dreams come true.  

With Love & Gratitude,


PS. In the summer I like to put my chocolates in the fridge or freezer and eat them cold. Just remember chocolate absorbs moisture and flavor so make sure you put them in an airtight bag or container. Nothing beats sharing a cold chocolate morsel of love and bliss with friends & family on a hot day.
