Product Information

When Valrhona decided to tackle one of the dessert world’s most beloved classics to make a new chocolate, the results were none other than Azélia 35%. This new Grand Cru strikes the perfect balance of chocolate, milk and hazelnuts. It reawakens delectable childhood memories and thrills even the most sophisticated adult taste buds. Valrhona designed Azélia using cocoa and nuts selected and processed for their flavor and quality. Its warm brown color reignites some of our greatest childhood passions whether it is used in bonbons, chocolate bars, ganaches, desserts, ice creams or sorbets.

So that taste is always a source of inspiration, we have used a research-based co-creation approach to give each couverture a specific ambiance which will appeal to both your senses and your emotions.

Azélia is a little like a delicious chocolate spread you can bite into and enjoy - a real treat, in other words! This inspiring project showcased and combined two of Valrhona’s essential areas of expertise - chocolate and praliné - both in the way we carefully selected our ingredients and in the caramelization technique we used.
