Her visit involves layers of tempered chocolate, painting, splattering edible glitter, and raising funds for the Ocean Giants Program, a charity that works “really hard to protect some of the ocean’s largest and most threatened species.”

“That includes animals like the whale shark, dolphins, manta rays… even turtles. They also help support students who are studying the ocean and will go on to become our next generation of marine scientists.”

Chococo is known for its ethically-minded approach to chocolate egg-making. Handmade with direct trade, single estate chocolate from Ecuador, Ocean Eggs are naturally vegan-friendly, palm oil-free, and packed in plastic-free, recyclable packaging.
