The beautiful bright red blossoms of hibiscus are used around the world to make a refreshing tart drink called Bissap in West Africa, Karkady in the Middle East, Jamaica in Mexico, Krajiap in Thailand, and Sorrel in Jamaica. Regardless of where it is drunk, hibiscus is renowned around the world for reducing fever and lowering blood pressure, boosting the healthiness of our already antioxidant rich chocolate with a fruity tanginess that complements the chocolate's smooth rich taste and will make it hard for you to resist.

Delicious and Original Chocolate Bars Currently Available

This chocolate is made with cacao purchased directly from an organic farm cooperatives in Central America and Hawaii and crafted from bean to bar in small batches. Our processing preserves a high level of healthy antioxidants and provides a rich delightful flavor. 

At Madre Chocolate we use a selection of traditional fruits and spices of the Aztec, Maya, Olmec, and Barra tribes of Central America that invented chocolate, to both celebrate their cultural heritage and bring you delicious original flavors that few have had the privilege of tasting…until now.

Enticing flavors in two lines


Ever wonder what chocolate tasted like when it sprung from the minds of the Aztec, Maya, and Olmec civilizations that invented it? Now you can taste that story with our bars inspired by traditional recipes using Mexican flavors in bold dark chocolate we make from Central American and Caribbean cacao.


Inspired by the delicious bounty of Hawai’i’s fresh fruit, herbs, and spices, we have captured these local flavors in bars with rich dark chocolate made from Hawaiian-grown cacao. As Hawai’i is the only place in the US where cacao can be grown, this is true locavore chocolate!

All of our products are vegan and soy-free. Most chocolate has soy-lecithin in it as an emulsifier. Our chocolate does not, so it is fine for those who have soy allergies.

Single Estate Hawaiian

70% Dark Chocolate

Hamakua coast, Big Island

vegan, soy-free

When we are able to obtain some of the well grown and fermented cacao beans from farmers we have cultivated close relationships with around the Hawaiian islands, we carefully crush, winnow, and conch this delicate cacao into a rich smooth chocolate reminiscent of the South Pacific breezes that warm these tropical isles. This is one of the few chocolates available that is completely grown and made on US soil.

Winner 1st place best bean-to-bar chocolate at the 2012 Big Island Chocolate Festival

$10 for a 1.5 oz bar

Xocoxochitl Chipotle Allspice

organic, fair trade, vegan, soy-free

Traditional chocolate flavorings of the Aztecs, the chipotles and allspice in this bar give the chocolate a little extra smoky kick, but not tongue-searingly hot. The fact that chiles are pain relievers and appetite suppressants can only make this delicious chocolate even better for you! Though the native allspice of the Caribbean and Central America has been largely replaced by cinnamon and cloves, plants introduced from Asia,  we love the rich flavor combination of allspice  so much we named this bar after the Aztec name for allspice, Xocoxochitl.

$6.50 for a 1.5 oz bar

Wedding & Special Event Chocolate

Made on request

We offer these gorgeous locally made chocolate tablet samplers for your wedding party or special event with your choice of up to 12 of our different flavors individually wrapped in glassine envelopes or biodegradable yet elegant pyramid boxes with flavor names, ribbons, and a simple note for your guests. They make a great wedding favor or treat to say thanks to your attendees with one of the only chocolates grown and made in the US. Please contact us for information on how to customize these delicious chocolate favors for your event!



We prefer to ship USPS flat rate priority mail from Hawaii to the mainland so that we can put extra padding in to make sure the chocolate bars do not break in shipping (which would not work in an envelope) and provide thermal protection (mylar, cornstarch packing peanuts, and/or ice packs) so they do not melt sitting on a runway somewhere.  Anywhere from 1 to 9 bars costs the same $8 with this method. We strive to use recycled and recyclable packing materials. If you know about more sustainable packing options, please let us know!


We currently offer international shipping to Mexico, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Germany via the “International Expedited” shipping option. If the country you want to send our chocolate to is not in this list, stay tuned and we hope to be able to add it soon so everyone around the world can enjoy our delicious chocolate too!

Amaranth Crunch

organic, fair trade, vegan, soy-free

Amaranth is a “pseudo-grain” closely related to quinoa of South America and spinach, and not to the grasses that give us all the other “true” grains. Little known outside of Central America and health food shops in the US, amaranth should be called a “truer” grain since it actually has substantial quantities of all 8 of the essential amino acids, which grains are missing many of. In fact, amaranth was so substantial that it was a staple food for the Aztecs, who even molded it into large sculptures outside their impressive temples, yet, disastrously, the European conquistadores thought this food was sacrilegious and banned the Aztecs from using it, possibly leading to the Aztecs eventual collapse without their central food. Luckily it has survived into the modern day in delicious cakes called alegrias, Spanish for “joys”, made of popped amaranth seeds mixed with honey or sugar, a delicious, nutty, and healthy alternative to rice krispies! We thought this would make a great contribution to our Mexican historical line of chocolates, so we hand pop thousands of the minuscule seeds and blend them with a rich dark Mexican chocolate, given it a nice crunch, pop, and nuttiness when you bite into the bar. What could be better than eating a delicious, healthy slice of history that is called “joys”?

$6.50 for a 1.5 oz bar
Coconut Milk & Caramelized Ginger

55% Dark Chocolate

Hamakua coast, Big Island

vegan, soy-free

For milk chocolate lovers but still super healthy, vegan, & luscious. Made with coconut milk and organic Hawaiian ginger caramelized to a delectable  chewiness in an utterly smooth and creamy bar. After scouring first the world for a good coconut milk, and then in Hawai’i for this surprisingly hard to find rich, tropical nut, we finally decided to make our own from hand harvested coconuts from Maui & the Big Island. This is a truly local bar that we designed for our fans that are milk chocolate lovers, but since we
released it only 3 months ago, all the dark chocolate lovers have been flocking to it as well. Treat yourself to the rich, mellow, creaminess that is quickly making this bar one of our most popular! It even made the finals at the Good Food Awards for 2013.

$9 for a 1.5 oz bar

Pink Peppercorn & Smoked Salt

70% Dark Chocolate

Hamakua coast, Big Island

vegan, soy-free

Tasty spicy pink relatives of cashew and mango, called “christmas berry” in Hawaii, pink peppercorns are originally from Brazil, and they have spread across the ridges of Hawaii to a point that they are crowding out native plants. Normally the pink peppercorns you buy in the store take a circuitous route from Reunion Island to France to the US, definitely not local food! So we decided to do something about this non-local food yet invasive plant, but picking as much of the spreading trees locally in Hawaii as we can, lightly drying them, and mixing them with finely ground Hawaiian sea salt in assertive local Hawaiian dark
chocolate that lets you take part in a project of ours called Eat the Enemy where you help eat invasive plants out of existence in a delicious way!

$9 for a 1.5 oz bar

Hawaiian Passion Fruit 70% Dark Chocolate

70% Dark Chocolate

Hamakua coast, Big Island

vegan, soy-free

Calming aromatic Hawaiian passion fruit is blended with locally made Hawaiian dark chocolate, for a bar that lifts the mind and stimulates the palate. Locally called lilikoi in Hawai’i, this delicious, fragrant, tropical fruit is originally from South and Central America where parents give it to their children before bedtime to take advantage of its calming properties and get them to sleep without a fuss. You can take advantage of this amazing effect in passion fruit which has a delicious tangy taste that makes an excellent combo with our dark, fruity, Hawai’i chocolate. This is our most popular flavor to date locally in Hawai’i and we finally
have enough to make it available online to you as well. $8 for a 1.5 oz bar

$9 for a 1.5 oz bar

Rosita de Cacao

70% Dark Chocolate

Dominican Republic cacao

organic, fair trade, vegan, soy-free

The rich, maple sugar or fenugreek scent of the flower called cacahuaxochitl by the Aztec is presented with a Dominican chocolate that stands up to heady aroma of the flower. Rosita de cacao, an intensely scented flower distantly related to cacao, is used in chocolate drinks and foams in Mexico, like tejate. The foam on these drinks was extremely popular among the Maya for centuries, being pictured on many of their burial vases that contained chocolate. This is one of the few times this rare spice has been seen and tasted outside of Mexico, your chance to be part of the true history
of chocolate. As mentioned on the 2012 Saveur magazine 100 list.

Wildcrafted Hawaiian Pink Peppercorn

Also know in Hawai‘i as Christmas Berry from the time of year it ripens, or wilelaiki, this gently dried aromatic wild harvested pink peppercorn is great both in sweet and savory dishes as a beautiful garnish or ground spice. Since it is in the mango family it has a nice fruity finish on top of its mild peppery taste that goes great in everything from spice rubs to cupcakes. Since this plant is quite invasive, displacing native Hawaiian plants, we're hoping you'll help us with this project we call "Eat the Enemy" to eat this plant out of existence. Tasty & ecological, how can you go wrong?!
