Rabitos Royale Dark Chocolate Fig Bonbons (16 Pieces)
  • 16 individually wrapped bonbons
  • Figs Infused with dark chocolate and brandy
  • NY Fancy Food Show: Best Confection 2006

Rabitos Royale Dark Chocolate Fig Bonbons are an amazing product - perhaps our favorite chocolate creation from Spain. They have won immediate acclaim from our La Tienda community. But don’t take their word for it; when you try one we are confident that they will become a favorite of yours.

Raquel and Señador Valero conceived of this extraordinary treat while living among the fig trees of a small village in southwestern Spain. They select tender young figs from the neighboring groves and fill them with a mousse made of dark chocolate and a hint of brandy.

Each one is then hand dipped in even more rich dark chocolate! Finally each individual Rabito Bonbon is sealed in a foil envelope so that it will always taste as fresh as the day they were made.

The rich dark chocolate / brandy mousse nicely accents the delicate sweetness of the baby fig. It is an inspired juxtaposition of flavors.

It is a culinary masterpiece that earned the Best Confection in Show honor at the Fancy Food Show in New York – no mean accomplishment for the folks of a remote town in Extremadura! The Valero family knocked the socks off all the sophisticated big city confectioners!

A box of Rabitos makes an inspired alternative to the usual box of chocolates. What a wonderful way to eat a healthy fig! (A great rationalization when you reach for your third one!)

Rabitos are an unusually tasty gift for friends and family – and nice to have around for yourself.

Ingredients

Dried fig, liquid cream, glucose syrup, brandy liquor, chocolate.

    "A couple of years ago I was given a box of these chocolates (I think). I didn't keep the box or write down the name so can't be sure. I thought they were out-of-this-world good! I purchased these two boxes to give as gifts and will probably buy myself a box soon. Thank you!"

    "These bonbons are exquisite! They are just amazing and make a great gift. Each bonbon is individually wrapped to preserve freshness for each candy. That way the subtle brandy flavor does not fade. I gave several boxes of bonbons as holiday gifts and everyone loved them! They are different and interesting."

    "Oh my goodness...I received these as a gift from my husband and did not think that I would enjoy them. They are, quite simply, divine. I had no idea that the dark chocolate shell would be so delicate, that the fig would be so light, and that the liqueur filling could marry all the flavors together in such an organic way. Delightful!"

    "A very 'grown-up' dessert; hide this one from the kids and neighbors b/c this is a perfectly justified selfish indulgence. Each piece has so much flavor, you are satisfied to eat just one or two at a time."
