Mozart’s take on a centuries-old treat, the renowned Austrian delicacy Mozartkugel, can claim the title as the world’s most expensive! Mozartkugel, likely the most famous chocolate in Europe, is traditionally a pistachio marzipan chocolate truffle. Ours is flaked in 23-karat Italian gold!
Pastry chef Doris Saha starts with a truffle made from Watershed Distillery’s critically acclaimed small-batch artisanal bourbon. That truffle is enrobed in pistachio marzipan then coated in Valrhona 70%-cocoa chocolate imported from France, then flaked in Paolo Angeletti 23-carat edible gold imported from Italy.
The end result, priced at $250, is almost too decadent to eat! It’s guaranteed to make its recipient feel like the most important person in the world. This luxurious treat is available by special order at Mozart’s.
Mozart’s owner Anand Saha tells The Columbus Dispatch: “Our motivation was to do something unique that people know about,” Saha said, in the same way Schmidt’s is known for its cream puffs.
