There’s something we need to be clear about from the start. This bar from French chocolate maker Pralus contains no sugar at all. It’s not the kind of chocolate you take a big bite out of!
As the “Le 100%” name implies, this is a 100% cocoa solids chocolate, containing nothing but cocoa mass and a little extra cocoa butter. But we think it’s a great way to show off the natural intensity and flavours present in cocoa.
Break off a small piece, let it melt and discover the smooth texture and fruity, roasted flavour notes of Madagascan cocoa.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Pralus has been making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France, since 1948. Auguste Pralus quickly became famous for his Praluline, a gorgeous brioche packed with rose-sugar-coated pieces of almonds and hazelnuts. Auguste’s son François is now at the helm, and Pralus has become famous the world over for its fabulous chocolate. François is a master chocolate maker – he’s always on the lookout for new cocoa beans and has recently bought his own farm on the Madagascan island of Nosy Be.
