White chocolate is a mixture of sugar, milk powder (or milk powder alternative like coconut or oat), and cocoa butter. When we make white chocolate, we use 100% pure cocoa butter. All the oil that we use is derived from the cocoa bean. So that is why our white chocolate is still chocolate.
Josh and Kristin Mohagen started a small craft chocolate business just nine years ago, but its chocolate is now being carried by national grocery chains and it has produced an award-winning golden chocolate which Josh calls "one of the best white chocolates in the world."
