This unique, elegant bar from Patisserie Chocolaterie s.a.s. Pralus (Roanne, France) can be cut into rectangular pieces and shared with friends. Think sliced truffles.
Covered in dark chocolate, and filled with hazelnut praline and toasted almonds from Valencia, this delicious confection is one of two "infernal" bars (there is also a milk chocolate version with toasted hazelnuts) from chocolatier Francois Pralus. Despite being transported in warm weather, it was still very good.
Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week, and Day #3 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
