What is praliné chocolate ?

Praliné is the result of a complex process: hazelnuts or almonds are roasted, before water and sugar are added. A kind of nougatine is created; it's then crushed and mixed to achieve a smooth, liquid texture. The chocolatier then adds cocoa butter to form the praliné needed to make the praliné chocolate.


Our praliné chocolate recipe is the result of decades of work. Our praliné is plain or mixed with one of a wide range of flavors, including roasted almond and wafer biscuit.


Our praliné chocolates are available in dark or milk praliné. They are filled with hazelnuts, gianduja, coconut, and pecans.
