We Should Cocoa

We Should Cocoa BadgeWe Should Cocoa, aka #WeShouldCocoa, was a monthly cooking event for food bloggers. It was based on … you guessed it … chocolate! 

We Should Cocoa was started in September 2010 by me, Choclette and Chele formally of Chocolate Teapot. It ended on 1 September 2018 exactly 8 years after it started. The idea was to make something with chocolate each month. Until September 2016 you had to use the special ingredient selected each month along with chocolate. After that you could make whatever you liked as long as it contained some sort of chocolate or cocoa substance. Entries had to be vegetarian, but could be sweet or savoury, simple or complicated.
