Fratelli Carli Hazelnut Baci di Dama: the perfect blend of uniqueness and tradition
Fratelli Carli Hazelnut Baci di Dama are inspired by the traditional recipe and, to make them even more unique, also contain Carli Olive Oil. A detail that makes them incredibly crumbly and ensures that they melt pleasantly in the mouth. The fragrance of hazelnut and chocolate is irresistible and the ingredients are of the utmost quality:
- whole shelled hazelnuts, of the Italian round variety, with a delicate and unmistakable flavor. Whole hazelnuts (i.e. not chopped or powdered) guarantee a higher quality product and are only toasted, shelled and ground before being used and in the right quantity;
- citrus fruit honey, with its medium intensity fruity and floral notes, is ideal for preparing pastries;
- Carli Olive Oil, sweet and subtle, makes it possible to create a highly original variant of the traditional recipe, which usually contains a mix of butter and margarine or just butter. The Olive Oil not only complements the flavor of these pastries, it also enhances the texture, beautifully crumbly and surprisingly melt-in-the-mouth;
- dark chocolate, with nothing added, for the filling.
The preparation process is simple but masterful: after measuring out all the ingredients, you make the dough. You then cut out little semi-spherical cookies, slightly flattened, which will be held together by a thin layer of creamy dark chocolate.
The resulting pastries, perfectly round, will therefore have a rustic, rough and ready appearance and an amber color due to the presence of the hazelnuts, which make up 18% of the dough.
In the mouth the pastries are rich and full-flavored with strong hints of hazelnut that are perfectly balanced out by the chocolate. What really catches you by surprise is the finish, a sweet and sophisticated aftertaste which pervades the palate.
To ensure that Fratelli Carli Hazelnut Baci di Dama are always perfect, these pastries are not available during the hottest months of the year but only from September to April, when the weather conditions are optimal for their storage.
