It's one of my favourite chocolates in the world! It's a traditional Italian treat that is made from gianduia chocolate (chocolate mixed with hazelnut creme) with chopped hazelnuts, a full hazelnut placed on top & dipped in rich dark chocolate. It's a chocolate that we all see every Christmas & Valentines day-- and for good reason! Baci means "kiss" in Italian & every single chocolate is wrapped with a special love note inside :)
I've had the pleasure of watching an Italian Master chocolatier make fresh Baci & I've been addicted ever since. There's a reason this recipe has been around for 90 years! I've been told that Baci was actually created by a chocolate maker, Giiovanni Buitoni & his wife Luisa Spagnoli, a fashion designer. Oh snap. Maybe we should start working on a chocolate recipe too! haha
Baci is having a massive giveaway right now on their website, facebook and twitter. Right now you can win a trip for two to ITALY in their Love Note Contest! You can enter up to 3 times daily (once on each platform!) and there are secondary prizes of gift certificates to Bed and breakfasts Canada!
