As instructors illuminate the origins of chocolate and the distinguishing characteristics of the three kinds of cocoa bean, students sample Hawaiian cocoa beans, bonbons, and moon pies. After tasting the fruits of another confectioner’s labor, students get their hands chocolatey by making their own bonbons with molds and custom transfer sheets.
Kokoa Bar by Ricard Chocolat
Whether it’s silky dark chocolate draped over organic fruit fillings or lines of white bonbons stenciled with high-impact floral decals, Ricard Muszynski’s confections wow the eyes long before they touch palates. But Muszynski channels his experience as a gourmet chef to add a layer of depth to his creations not typically found in other candies. He sources his ingredients locally for the handcrafted confections, and Kokoa Bar uses local pineapple, papaya, and mango for their dipped fruits. It’s not just the confections that go above and beyond—bonbon fillings include chili lime, passionfruit, and honey blossom. Visitors can get the candies to go in white boxes wrapped with aqua ribbon, or linger in the café to savor gourmet coffee and ice cream.
