Liquor-filled/Liqueur-filled chocolate bonbons are a decadent and indulgent treat that combines rich chocolate with a delicious liquid center. These bonbons are often filled with various types of liqueurs.
At the Manufacture Cluizel the process of making liquor-filled chocolate bonbons is handmade and involves a high level of craftsmanship. The first step is to create a crust of sugar filled with the liquor. To create the crust, you need a tray of very dry cornstarch in which you will shape cavities. Then you will fill them with a blend of syrup and liqueur. When the crust is finally created by the natural crystallization of the sugar, you will then carefully remove the starch and enrobe them with a tempered dark chocolate. At Cluizel we use our premium dark chocolate Vanuari 63%.
One of the best things about liqueur-filled chocolate bonbons is the variety of flavors that are available: calvados liqueur (apple), Quetsch (plum), Kirsch (cherry), Strawberry liqueur, Cognac (grapes), Rhum, Whisky and Cointreau (orange). For example, our “yellow” chardons are made with Mirabelle liqueur, the “pink” ones are with Raspberry liqueur and Williams pears are “green”.
In addition to being delicious, liqueur-filled chocolate bonbons are also a great gift idea for all occasions. They make an excellent addition to a dessert platter or can be presented in a decorative box as a thoughtful and indulgent gift.
It's worth noting that liqueur-filled chocolate bonbons are delicious and unique. It is an indulgent treat that combines the rich flavors of chocolate with a liquid center made with various types of liqueurs. With a wide variety of flavors available, they are perfect for any occasion. Just remember to enjoy them in moderation and savor every decadent bite.
