Celebrate Halloween with our frighteningly delicious creations! For the occasion, the Manufacture’s artisan-chocolatiers offer three creations, an ideal gift for the trick-or-treaters as they make their annual pilgrimage. Have no fear — our creations will tempt the older chocolate lover, as well. Three recipes compose this Halloween collection, bringing joy to fans of dark and milk chocolate alike. The Hexa-Spider takes on the signature shape of our hexagonal creations. On one side, an impressive spider ready to spin its web; on the other, delicious dried and candied almonds, hazelnuts, figs or apricots.
Our Hexa-scared was inspired by the emblematic Jack-o’-lantern, those cucurbits whose hand-made perforations let candlelight pass through. Although there are no candles in the Manufacture de Chocolat Alain Ducasse version, they do have a delicious, subtle yet crunchy pumpkin seed praliné. This praliné was developed by our artisans from carefully selected ingredients and according to an “ancient” method: the dried fruit are poured into a copper container with the sugar before being carmelized then ground. Finally, our little bats will also find their way into the childrens’ (or adults’!) candy bags. In milk or dark chocolate, these creations, with lines unique to Chocolat Alain Ducasse, will add a dramatic touch to your Halloween décor among the pumpkins and the costumes.
The two chocolates used for these creations, the Signature Blend 75% and a Madagascan cru 45%, have been manufactured from the cocoa bean onward in the heart of Paris. The first reveals balanced and tart aromatic notes, while the Madagascan 45% offers notes that are more fruity and round. To offer to another — or to yourself — these creations will give you the opportunity to rediscover the pleasure of tasting a chocolate full of nuances, textures and flavors.
