Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week. Last week was Chocolates in Toyland Week -- a good match for the holidays, filled with chocolates snug in their seasonal foils*.
However, I've been looking forward to this natural pairing of chocolate with these round, wonderful nuts.
Some of the best hazelnut chocolates come from Italy, (piedmont region?). This Milk Chocolate Hazelnut bar from La Suissa (Arquata Scrivia (AL), Italy) had a sweet aroma and contained chopped hazelnut bits, creating a slight crunch inside a creamy milk chocolate base.
*"Seasonal foils" is English translation for the holiday/novelty chocolates category on the La Suissa website.
