Van Nunen Chocolates

Belgian chocolate maker Stefaan Van Nunen invites you to experience the luxurious taste of his heritage chocolates. Stefaan has 18 years of experience in the manufacture of quality Belgian chocolates gained at exclusive manufacturing establishments in Antwerp, Belgium and also with Australian manufacturers of quality chocolates.

He has blended his experience and craftsmanship with quality ingredients to offer you an assortment of handmade chocolates of the highest standard. Stefaan's passionate attention to quality and taste offers you chocolates that will indulge your senses and delight your palette. His creativity in developing each unique chocolate translates through the delicate marriage of textures, flavours, form colour and aroma.

Traditional of Belgian chocolate is the soft centre, rich with subtle culinary complexity that expresses a rare chocolate experience, and is exclusively imparted by the maker. Dark, white and milk, spiced, sweetened, smooth and supple - each experience of taste identifies with the inimitable quality of Van Nunen Chocolates.
