Catànies bonbons are a delicious treat made with sweet toasted and caramelized Marcona almonds dipped in a white chocolate praline and coated in cocoa powder. Each piece contains a perfectly crunchy almond covered in rich, luxurious chocolate. Savor these delicious chocolate almonds on their own or with a cup of your favorite coffee.

Catànies are the most famous chocolates made by Bombons Cudié, an artisan chocolate company in Catalonia.

In 1946, Josep Cudié, a master chocolate maker in the town of Vilafranca del Penedès, created 'cro-crem' almonds made with caramelized Marcona almonds covered in white chocolate praline and cocoa powder. His chocolate shop was located in a historic building called 'Cal Catani'. His almonds were so popular that people began to call them 'Catànies'. The company officially became Bombons Cudié in the 1980s.

For three generations, Cudié chocolates have been handmade with a unique combination of Marcona almonds and chocolate praline. The recipe for the praline is a well-kept family secret and the recipe has been passed from generation to generation. Bombons Cudié is a family-run company that insists on using only the very best gourmet chocolate and the finest quality ingredients available.

    "Delicious! Our favorite sweets thus far from Tienda. Very expensive, however, for only 15 to 20 almonds--so be sure to save them for your favorites guests and events. Price is the only reason we cannot give 5 stars. "

    "These certainly are addictive! Crunchy and creamy all at the same time. I really liked the flavour of the chocolate, but the fruity notes were a little strong for me."

    "I've been having catanies since I was in High School in the 60' They are delicious and it's been my favorite treat for decades thanks to my childhood friend from Vilafranca who introduce me to them. I am sooo happy you can get them now here. I highly recommend them. If you try them once you get addicted for life. Thank you !"
