Praliné Pépites, deliciously irresistible
The perfect size to try our cocoa origins
Every recipe offers different aromas and textures for the gourmet chocolate lover. From traditional creations to more surprising ones, our luxury french chocolates all share in common an artisanal production based on carefully selected ingredients, best quality and perfectly tuned tastes. In dark or milk chocolate, our assorted chocolate boxes are the result of numerous experiments, tastings, trials, and blends in order to create the perfect balance between the different flavors, textures and subtle differences. Beans, fruit, and spices are carefully selected and prepared — voila the luxury of artisanal crafting that takes its time.
It is after having created all the fillings — the praliné, the almond paste and the ganaches — that our artisans shape them into chocolate bonbons. The different fillings are enrobed in 75% dark chocolate or 45% milk chocolate. At La Manufacture Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse, the chocolates fall into different recipes: the pralinés and the ganaches, pure origins and flavored. The Discovery Chocolate Boxes make it possible to taste an array of our creations, a selection of bonbons where everyone will find something that pleases. The Double Bites Boxes offer the same discovery, but with twice as much to taste. The Ganaches Chocolate Boxes consist of Single-Origin ganaches that celebrate the singularity of their terroir; the Flavored Ganaches offer a mix of flavors and textures. The Pralinés are developed according to a traditional production method that includes beginning with plunging whole dried fruits and sugar in a large, heated copper vat. And finally, the Pépites are a creative variation of our Traditional Pralinés — their shapes reveal the signature lines created by Pierre Tachon (Soins Graphiques) for Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse. As for the recipes, original aromas complement the more classical ones, such as buckwheat, coffee, nibs, hazelnut, and almond.
