The Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel by Mirabell is more than just an exquisite delicacy. In comparison to all the other industrially manufactured products that take the name Mozartkugel it is unique. It is the only one to be completely round and is still produced in the spirit of the original recipe created by Paul Fürst in Salzburg, the city where Mozart was born. Furthermore it is synonymous with Austrian culture and tradition rather like the Lipizzans and Wiener Sängerknaben.
And of course it is a popular souvenir for anyone who wants to take a little piece of Austria back home.
A box of Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel made by Mirabell contains everything that you love about Austria: history, music and tradition. The Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel by Mirabell are produced from choice ingredients and with the greatest care in Mozart’s native region of Salzburg.
About one hundred years after the divinely gifted composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived and worked here, the master confectioner from Salzburg, Paul Fürst, began to form small balls of marzipan which he coated in a praline cream and speared on little wooden sticks. He then dipped these balls in warm, smooth chocolate until they were coated regularly with a chocolate layer all over. This was the birth of the Mozartkugel.
The traditional Mirabell company also originally produced its Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel, according to tradition in a manual process. However, in order to meet the increasing demand the manual manufacturing process was transformed into an industrial method. Nevertheless Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel are still made with the same love and attention to detail – fourteen working stages and a total manufacturing time of 2 ½ hours are necessary for each perfectly round delicacy.
Each Mozartkugel is an incomparable taste experience consisting of a marzipan centre, surrounded by layers of light and dark praline cream, coated in finest rich dark chocolate. When choosing the ingredients Mirabell pays particular attention to top quality: select pistachio nuts, choice almonds and freshly roasted hazelnuts form the basis of the perfectly round speciality chocolate.
And here’s another little piece of advice: you can easily recognise the Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel by Mirabell not only by their perfectly round shape but also by the classic red and gold octagonal packaging.
Mozartkugel have a heart of finest marzipan surrounded by dark and light praline cream and are coated with rich dark chocolate.
