Give these French artisanal confections called Quernons d’Ardoise and be sure your gift will be appreciated! The Quernon d'Ardoise is a delicious specialty of Anjou, a region situated in the lower Loire valley of western France. This artisanal confection is made of caramelized praline with almonds and hazelnuts, coated with blue chocolate. The crunchy praline is set off by the smoothness of the chocolate. These delicious confections are packaged in a very pretty collectible tin box. Approximately 25 pieces in the box. (7.05 oz)
A “quernon” is a slab of slate. The slaters of Anjou split “quernons” to make the slates that were used to roof the houses of the region. Anjou is a former French province in western France with the town of Angers as its capital. The candy-maker of “La Petite Marquise” based in Angers had the idea of coating his creation with blue chocolate because he wanted to imitate the color of the slates used to roof the houses of the town.
Ingredients: sugar, hazelnuts and almonds, cocoa butter, milk, lecithin, vanillin, FD&C blue no. 2, artificial color.
