Hello

Welcome

Kristin here, Maître Chocolatier, owner of Cocoa Nouveau, and lover of all things chocolate. I've always loved eating chocolate but it wasn't until after living and studying in Europe that I began crafting artisan chocolates and confections by hand. 

About Cocoa Nouveau

Handcrafted

After living in Europe and attending the Ecole Chocolat Professional School of Chocolate Arts and L’Ecole du Grand Chocolat Valrhona for Chocolate Mastery I began crafting artisan chocolates and confections by hand. My mission is to now spread joy by bringing European-style decadent chocolates to the community of Hampton Roads. 

Seasonal Flavors

I use only with the best and most sustainable ingredients in my products and my kitchen is preservative and gluten-free (along with select vegan options).While some flavors are always available, the majority are seasonal flavors made with local ingredients, when possible.

Experience the decadence

Whether for a birthday gift, hostess gift or even a corporate gift, chocolates are always the right choice. By the way, chocolates don't always have to be given away, treat yourself too, you deserve it! 

The Meaning Behind The Name

The name, Cocoa Nouveau, was inspired by my love for the feminine and floral "Art Nouveau", the international style of art, architecture, and applied art after the Industrial Revolution that was about celebrating handcrafted and artistry. Not only is my business named after this style of art, each of my chocolate flavors are named after a city, artist, architect, etc during that time.
