Created by Bombons Cudié, an artisan chocolatier in Catalonia, Kakawa chocolate and coffee covered almonds are an exquisite treat to savor on their own by the handful or with a mug of coffee or hot chocolate.
Kakawa chocolates start with toasted and caramelized Marcona almonds. Each crunchy almond is then coated in rich 70% cacao dark chocolate, coffee flavored praline and rolled in cocoa powder.
In 1946, Josep Cudié, a master chocolate maker in the town of Vilafranca del Penedès, created a unique chocolate treat when he mixed caramelized Marcona almonds with white chocolate praline and cocoa powder. Originally named 'cro-crem' almonds, they were immediately popular. Josep's chocolate shop was located in a historic building named 'Cal Catani' and his popular 'cro-crem' almonds quickly became known as 'Catànies'.
For three generations, Cudié chocolates have been handmade with a combination of Marcona almonds and chocolate praline. Their beloved secret praline recipe has been passed from generation to generation. A family-run company, Bombons Cudié insists on using only the very best gourmet chocolate and the finest quality ingredients available.
Marcona almonds, sugar, cocoa paste, cocoa butter, coffee, powdered milk, vegetable fat, powdered cacao, soy lecithin, vanilla.
