Our Swiss dark chocolate, a proprietary blend using 60% cocoa and all-natural vanilla, coating fresh roasted nonpareil almonds.
This signature product is created using a multi-step process: the almonds are roasted to a golden brown, delicately caramelized then coated with our dark chocolate and covered in cocoa powder. The ultimate amount of crunch and decadent chocolate coating in every bite.

We roast our fresh nonpareil almonds to a golden brown. While they are roasting in a large copper kettle, we add sugar to create a thin caramelized shell around each almond, giving them just the perfect amount of crunch. We then mix the almonds with powdered sugar then place them in revolving pans (like a big cement mixer). As they spin, we drizzle in chocolate. The almonds collect more and more chocolate as they roll. As the mixer spins, it rounds out the chocolate to give an even coating to each almond. This intensive process ensures that each almond has the ultimate amount of crunch and decadent chocolate coating.
When we first opened, André would mix our chocolate almonds in a bowl by hand, blending in chocolate to coat the almonds. He would know that there was enough chocolate coating on the almonds when his arm felt like it was going to fall off.
André’s son, Macel introduced, introduced the panning method we use today that he learned while training as a pastry chef in Switzerland.
