DNA ChocolateSETTING THE BAR IN ARIZONA
Passionate about pure and decadent chocolate, we only use certified organic, fair-trade and conflict-free ingredients directly sourced from farmers.
Rooted in traditional Mayan chocolate-making techniques, DNA Chocolate takes a meticulous approach to creating the best chocolates. From cleaning and roasting to grinding and tempering, the process can take more than a month to bring out the natural flavors of the Criollo cacao bean.
Denae’s passion for chocolate is found in her roots. As a young girl, Denae would help her mother make candies where she worked in a fudge shop. While in her 20s, Denae’s travels took her through Mexico and Central America. She hiked mountains in small Mayan villages where she commenced with the locals. Through her travels she also stayed with a family in Oaxaca. Every morning, she would wake up to the smells of chocolate as the people ground cacao beans and brewed cacao drinks. These experiences emboldened Denae to try her own hand at chocolate making.

The quality of ingredients, mouthwatering taste, and beautiful display all contribute to the perfection of these chocolates! I love being able to support a local business while feeling guilt-free about giving as gifts.

Best chocolates I’ve ever eaten! I bought 4 large boxes and some small boxes for Christmas gifts and ended up keeping a couple for myself.
Totally delicious and addictive!!!!
