Chocolate Praline Gift Box by Il Cioccolato di BruCo
Packed in a beautiful gift box, these fine Italian chocolates are a mix of dark chocolate exteriors containing an intensely flavored fillings. The fruit of the cocoa tree know as "Cabosse" has an oval shape and contains around fifty cocoa beans covered with a whitish pulp. Cabosse is ripe when it changes colors from yellow to violet or from orange to red. Bruco has been inspired from the fruit of the cocoa to obtain this new delicious praline with gianduja and cocoa beans grains covered with 70% dark chocolate. Intense and overwhelming, with the main flavor being very persistent cacao, hints of leather and dry fruit, lingering on the palate. Available in two varieties:
  • Sage and Rosemary: The savory notes of Italian herbs add a depth of flavor to the fine dark chocolate of this praline.
  • Ciocc'Olio: Ciocc'Olio combine this unique chocolate with a drop of Extra Virgin Oil, from the best olives of the Frantoio, Leccino, and Ascolana varietals. The art of chocolate mixed with the Mediterranean staple of olive oil.
BruCo chocolate is not merely the day-to-day work of a craftsman, but is rather the result of a real approach to the mission of ‘making chocolate’. The unusual name of this chocolate derives from the first few letters of BRUna Gibellini and Costantino Tiranti, who, in the 1940s, in Genga in the region of the Marches developed, almost as a game, the original recipe for chocolate with aniseed. This recipe, which had been lost over the years, was then luckily found and thus began the story of Bruco chocolate. This company is entirely made up of craftsmen, and boasts a philosophy to research and put forward perfect chocolate combinations, that have been known to the Olmeca, Maya and Aztec civilizations since the beginning of the history of ‘Food for the Gods’.
