Favarger Chocolates of Geneva: Aveline Black Filberts, Recipe #152


Oh my, my cousin John was visiting from Geneva and brought along a box of the most decadent candies. Farvarger has been creating chocolate delicacies since 1826, and over the years they have certainly perfected the recipes. This particular box contained Aveline Black Filberts (Aveline Noir), the company's Recipe #152. Each individually wrapped piece contains dark chocolate that almost reaches the consistency of fudge- thick, sticky, and super melty. Suspended in the rich dark chocolate bites are finely chopped bits of almonds to add a little crunch and balance some of the strong chocolate flavor. They're incredible. I couldn't eat more than one at a time because of their taste intensity. One fills you up! Thanks, John!

    1. It says on the website that these are Almonds (http://www.favarger.ch/en/dark), but honestly I couldn't have identified the nut without the label. They are so crushed and overpowered by the dark chocolate, it's hard to really taste the nut. It's more like you just experience the crunch without the flavor...
