Welcome to Day #3 of Italian Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's Nougatine Bonbons were from Venchi (Torino (Turin), Italy).
The 56% dark chocolate coating around these capsule-shaped bonbons covered a hard, crunchy center of toffee-like caramelized bits of Italian IGP hazelnuts. These special hazelnuts from the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy had a special sweet, creamy roasted nutty flavor that lingered into the finish.
