Made following the traditional recipe from the Pastiglie Leone archives, this little chocolate is the perfect combination of Venezuela cacao beans and the hazelnuts from the Langhe region, in Piedmont. Together, they create "gianduja", still made and cut by hand. Velvety and smooth, they melt instantly, giving a truly decadent and unforgettable taste experience. Gluten free and Dairy free (also Vegan friendly).
HOW TO USE IT
Simply enjoy after dinner, with a glass of sweet wine. Or with a butter biscuit as an afternoon break. Or with your morning coffee. Anytime should also be fine.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Smooth, hazel-nutty, an explosion of flavours. What's not to love?
