The ballotin box was created by Jean Neuhaus and his wife Louise Agostini in 1915. It was designed as an attractive way to present the pralines and to protect them on their way from the chocolate store to their lucky recipient.
The Classic ballotin box offers a tempting chocolate assortment with praliné, ganache and gianduja fillings that will appeal to any chocolate lover. The 1/2 lb box contains 17 pralines including such favorites as:
Coeur Praliné - This soft Turkish hazelnut praliné in a milk chocolate shell releases the sweet flavors of hazelnut and chocolate. The smooth texture of the praliné filling enhances the soft, sweet character of this chocolate.
Albert - This praline, created to commemorate the marriage of Prince Albert and Princess Paola, the present sovereigns of Belgium, is filled with Turkish hazelnut and Californian almond praliné, with a whole hazelnut in the centre - an exquisite and delicious surprise.
Napoléonette - Delicate milk chocolate with a praliné filling with a hint of fresh coffee. The combination of milk chocolate and coffee is a delectable blend of delicacy and strength.
