CALISSONS

$52
…tu es mignon

Traditional French almond-shaped calissons made by confectioners who have been crafting pastries, candies, and this 15th c. Provencal recipe in France since 1827. Among super fans of this almond and candied fruit specialty was Victor Hugo, who once said “It is thanks to Boissier my dear doves, that we fall happily at your feet, for the strong we conquer with bombs and the weak we conquer with sweets.”

We encourage lighter thoughts while plucking these iced pale pink wonders from their angel-adorned jewelry boxes or plating them on a silver platter for a sumptuous buffet. Use a French Folding Fan when you’ve had too many. Box contains 12 calissons and is 8”l x 2.5”w x .75”h
