For the love of chocolate
DELICIOUSLY YOURS © | FINE CHOCOLATES BY CAROL.
Our artisan chocolates are made in the Inner West, Sydney. We sell on-line and offer pick up from Drummoyne.
Early in her career Carol established a Middle Eastern cooking school. She taught busy professionals the art of Middle Eastern Cuisine and paid homage to her culture and up-bringing. In 2008, following the birth of her first son, Carol fell in love with cake decorating. Being creatively minded and a keen learner she dived into each facet of the cake decorating process and deliciously yours was born! At that time Carol was (and still is) enjoying a career as a successful lawyer. Her motivation for starting deliciously yours stemmed from wanting to make amazing cakes and bring joy to her wonderful clients.
Carol loves teaching and wrote (and self published) her first e-book sharing her knowledge on cake decorating.
Fast forward many years later and we were all hit with this thing called the pandemic. It impacted us all differently. Whilst the crux of the pandemic years were really tough, Carol used this time to focus on extending her cake knowledge and learning something new – the science of chocolate. Carol was inspired by a close friend (who happens to be an exceptional chocolatier). Carol begun learning how to mould chocolates and fill them with ganache. She studied the science behind ganache formulations, caramels and pate de fruit (fruit jelly). This journey was rewarding and exciting as Carol begun creating her own luscious bon bons beautifully decorated with naturally coloured cocoa butter. Carol didn’t stop there! She wanted to create an exquisite plant based range and begun making her own plant based white chocolate using a melanger and refining her chocolate until it was silky smooth and had that perfect creamy texture. Learn more about Carol’s philosophy behind her plant based range here.
Carol’s love for science and chocolate merged and Carol was in her element! In 2021, deliciously yours artisan chocolate came to life and Carol launched her on-line store in 2023.

An extensive plant based offering
Whilst there is a huge variety of plant based chocolate on the market, most of it is dark chocolate. How wonderful would it be if all plant based chocolate lovers had more choice and variety around the chocolate they ate? Carol began experimenting with new ‘white’ plant based chocolate bars using different base ingredients to substitute for the milk in white chocolate. Imagine, plant based cookies and ‘cream’, latte, strawberry and passionfruit, nuts, dark and white swirls, caramels, inclusions galore!
After experimenting with various recipes and also running a survey with plant based consumers the deliciously yours plant based white chocolate bars were born! The ingredients are minimal, exciting, luxurious and creamy. But Carol did not stop there – she went on to study recipe formulation further and began creating her own range of plant based chocolate bon bons with ganache fillings like passionfruit and mango, caramel and decadent pralines. The deliciously yours plant based offering is extensive and exceptional and we know you will devour it and come back for more.
