Chocolate lovers can now have a taste of luxury with the creations in Cocoa Gourmet’s “Chocolats Haute Joaillerie” Royal Collection, a range of fine chocolates inspired by Swiss high jewelry.
The Royal Collection features three creations of the Swiss chocolatiers behind Cocoa Gourmet. The Baton d’Or contains a Swiss praline center covered Grand Cru Maracaibo 65% dark chocolate from Venezuela, and enveloped in 22K edible gold leaf.
The Baton d’Argent, as the name suggests, is a similar version, this time with pure edible silver covering a shell of Cru Sauvage 68% dark chocolate from Bolivia over their own creation, “Swiss Chocolate Beurre Royal”.
Finally, creamy 64% Grand Cru dark chocolate from Madagascar over a Swiss ganache heart is adorned with a pair of sweet, edible diamonds.
The collection of a dozen precious chocolates comes in a wooden case inspired by a treasure chest, and will be delivered to your doorstep anywhere in the world for a cost of US$1,250.
