These lovely little award-winning salted pralines are quite famous in the Chapon line. They are a chocolate epicurean delight with almond, hazelnut, pistachio paste, Guerande salt and a touch of smoked salt. This sweet and petite box is a holiday favorite and the perfect small token of affection for a chocolate lover close to your heart
The trio of salted pralines in this box set were made by multi-awarded pâtissier-chocolatier Patrice Chapon, who once supplied ice creams and sorbets to Buckingham Palace. It's no surprise that he was invited to make the Queen's frozen desserts. Patrice's ice cream is voluptuous and silky, infused with ambrosial vanilla and opulent cinnamon.
While in England, he became fascinated with the concept of making his own bean-to-bar chocolate courtesy of the alluring array of chocolates at Harrod's. Patrice now has five chocolate boutiques in France, three of which are in Paris, as well as his own chocolate mousse truck that traverses the streets of the City of Lights.
Chapon's packaging is replete with fanciful whimsy but the chocolate nestled inside is serious (and seriously delicious)! Several times each year, Patrice's journeys take him all over the globe, from the lush forests of Brazil to the Millot or Sambirano plantations in Madagascar. He feels compelled to meet the inspiring cacao farmers, learn about the beans, and source the finest vanilla, pink berry peppers and other spices for his indulgent creations.

I'm drawn to Chapon because the company shares the same ultimate goal as Barometer Chocolate - pure pleasure!
