Three delicious specialities by Mazet in a beautiful box
Created by the Mareschal Duc de Praline’s « officier de bouche », or personal chef, in the time of Louis XIII of France, caramelized almond candies – known as praslines – became immensely popular at court. Later, in 1650, the enterprising chef set up business in Montargis, near Paris, as confiserie du Roi. This became the confiserie Mazet in 1903. The ducal Praslines are still there today and specialities are directly inspired by the original recipe which still remains a secret.
Mirabos: milk chocolate covered hazelnut and orange nougat. Small chopped hazelnuts are blended with orange peel and caramelised before being dipped into milk chocolate.
Passions: chocolate covered crispy hazelnuts.
Grélons: milk chocolate covered crispy hazelnuts. Finely rolled in nougatine, then coated with milk chocolate, these hazelnuts are lightly covered with sugar.
