Machiavelli Chocolatier (P75 per piece – biggest size in rectangle)
The Chocolate Craze in Manila is heating up with the launch of Machiavelli Chocolatier Eurasian Fusion chocolates. The chocolates combine the best of European and Asian ingredients.
Machiavelli Chocolatier was founded by Raul D. Matias, a Filipino world-class chocolatier who left his physical therapy career to pursue his passion. It was named after Niccolo Machiavelli, who “was a philosopher, writer, and Italian politician and is considered one of the main founders of modern political science.” (Source: Wikipedia)
My cousin-in-law Pam, another Filipina chocolatier of Risa Chocolate Truffles fame, described it as ice cream wrapped in chocolate coating. Her favorites are the Ube, Yema, and Cashew Praline.
As for us, we are savoring our box of Machiavelli chocolates, which we bought before the Holy Week. We did not like the Guava Asia (Southeast Asian Guava Paste added to Dark Chocolate Ganache) and Ivorie Jack (Jack Fruit Puree, White Chocolate and coated with Dark Chocolate). I love the classic Grand Marnier with French cocoa powder, though. (I will update this post as we finish our box of mach-chocos.)
What’s your favorite Machiavelli Chocolate so far?
You can have it stylishly wrapped in these hard violet boxes, ranging from P35-P65, to give to your special someone. The box in the first photo is the free box.
Surprise your loved ones with these chocolates! Most Filipinas love chocolates. 🙂
