What exactly are pralines? In the numerous sources we’ve read, the definition depends on which part of the globe you’re on or simply which kind of chocolate you want. Pralines for the French is any confection that has crushed nuts while Pralines for the Belgian is a piece of chocolate with filling inside.
We say both are correct and wise to come up with such a delicious kind of confection. We’ve been inspired so we share our pralines with you at this weekend’s Eastwood Mall Chocolate Festival.
Salted Caramel, Crispy Hazelnut, Dark Mint, Hot Cocoa, Tiramisu, Strawberry Vinaigrette, and a new praline we’re introducing in this festival.
In case you want to sample the new praline, scheduled sampling for this new praline is from 5-6 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 4-5 pm on Sunday.
**If you’re into guessing games, here’s a clue: It’s a well loved beverage named after an equally well loved government official who helped abolish slavery in a country that is drinks a lot of this beverage.
Sometimes, the easiest things to do are the hardest ones to make.
Take caramel, for example. Making caramel using local sugar can be quite a daunting task as the sugar quality is seldom consistent (Sometimes too watery, sometimes too dry). It is only because we looove caramel so much that we tried and tried and tried and tried numerous times before we got it right.
Not too sweet. Soft and chewy. And chocolatey.
Yes. Chocolatey. We added dark chocolate because everything just tastes better with chocolate. Don’t you think?
So here’s our take on caramel. Risa Dark Chocolate Caramel. Made the old fashioned way (We think it’s more delicious that way).
Do give it a try. We’ll be selling these at the Eastwood Mall Chocolate Festival this weekend, September 7-9, 2012). Limited quantities only. Hope to see you there!

Blame it on age or being an entrep, but Christmas has been coming late as the years come along. In the Philippines, Christmas used to come as soon as the ‘ber (September, October, November, December) months come, with Christmas songs being played and Christmas lights suddenly brighten the nights. It doesn’t seem that way lately.
For this year’s Christmas, my chocolate creations are very personal. More than just selling chocolates, it is my own effort and wish for Christmas to be felt once more (and shared!), not just in our own home, but also in every home that our chocolates will be fortunate to enter.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
