Tis the season when Bizu comes up with their themed Christmas goodies. This year is an encore of last year’s Nutcracker Christmas. The Rudolph, a Christmas chocolate ornament ball with crème caramel filling and a moist chocolate brownie base, is back. So are Noël Fruit Cake which is made of Valrhona chocolate, pecans and dark cherries and Christmas Carrot and Walnut Cake which is topped with rich brown butter cream cheese.
The season’s masterpiece is Bizu’s Grand Carousel. Reminiscent of Caroussel de la Tour Eiffel in Paris, it is filled with classic butter cookies, crisp tuile, luscious chocolate-covered pretzels and crunchy caramel popcorn. Wind it up and hear a captivating tune.
Chestnut Cake is a combination of chestnut cremeaux, moist speculoos cake and caramel glaze topped with chestnut cream.
Melchor Croquembouche is a grand tower of profiteroles filled with pastry cream dipped in white and dark chocolate. Choose between an 18-inch tall croquembouche with 130 cream puffs or a 12- inch tall croquembouche with 60 cream puffs.
The Cheese Tarts are smooth and dense mascarpone cheesecake over flaky puff pastry is available per piece or in a lovely box of six.
Also included in this year’s Christmas offers are Bizu’s Chocolate Nut Butter Spreads, creamy and smooth combinations of chocolate and nut flavors with a hint of sweetness and a touch of saltiness. They come in 4 flavors: Hazelnut Milk Chocolate Butter, Macadamia and White Chocolate Butter, Almond Roca Butter and Pistachio White Chocolate Butter.
