Created by: David Cutts

Sponsored by: York's Chocolate Story

Say hello to Coco the Chocolate Snook! Wrapped in a cloak of joy and sprinkled with a dash of whimsy, Coco seems to have twirled through a chocolate fantasy, leaving a trail of sweets and sparkles, all while capturing the enchanting spirit of Joanne Harris's "Chocolat."
