Frangelico Gets Haute for Holidays: Great Cocktails & Partners with Mariebelle Artisanal Chocolates for Frangelico-flavored Bites!

Frangelico isn’t exactly the newest liqueur on the market but the hazelnut spirit makes for great sipping, cocktails as well as using in various recipes. Now the brand has gone a step further (ok.. a GIANT step further) by partnering with celebrity chocolatie, MarieBelle, in creating a Frangelico Ganaches treat with hand-painted decor. Yummy! It’s a decadent taste of Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur combined with rich dark chocolate and layered with notes of vanilla, coffee and almond, in a new, mouthwatering treat.

“These artisanal holiday truffles embody the flavors of the season, blending the hazelnut flavor of Frangelico with the gourmet taste of high-quality dark chocolate. Thanks to products like Nutella and Starbuck’s flavored lattes, hazelnut is an exceptionally popular flavor right now and I am so pleased to incorporate it into my products in a truly creative way,” states Maribel Lieberman, Founder, MarieBelle.

The confections will be available at the MarieBelle chocolate boutique in New York City, online at http://www.mariebelle.com/and at select luxury department stores nationwide.

The Frangelico truffles, the perfect stocking stuffer or holiday gift, will be available in 4 piece, 9 piece, 16 piece and 25 piece gift boxes, with prices starting at $15.00.

This lush chocolate treat with a smooth sinful ganache has a gorgeous hand-painted exterior and a lovely bite as you sink your teeth into it.

It is best enjoyed with the Frangelico Truffle cocktail, created by leading U.S. Master Mixologist James Moreland to perfectly complement the flavor nuances in the confection.

Frangelico Truffle Cocktail

1 oz Frangelico

1 oz SKYY ® Vodka

¾ oz Cold Espresso

Shake with ice and serve up in a cocktail or martini glass.
Dust with dark chocolate shavings.

Moreland notes, “Dessert cocktails are a definite trend at the moment, with hazelnut flavor topping the list. The Frangelico Truffle cocktail is a favorite, and the ideal way to enhance your flavor experience when delighting in the taste of MarieBelle’s chocolate.”

25 piece box!

Frangelico is surprisingly light and smooth with the rich taste of hazelnuts, sourced from the Piedmont region of Italy. At only 159 calories per cocktail, this recipe is the perfect way to take pleasure in the sweet delights of the holidays without overindulging.
Now pair that with the hand–painted ganache — in any size box– and you will have the ultimate holiday gift.. and even if you just give the chocolates, it will be an indulgence that most won’t buy for themselves.

Don’t forget to buy a box of these for yourself! These are a real taste treat with a smooth seductive taste and a lovely crack off the hand-painted shell makes for a lovely treat. I hesitate to share — but then again.. I don’t drink alone!

The truffles are now available at all LA -area Neiman Marcus shops;
