Behold the Mozart Kugeln.

This little confection was first made in Salzburg, Austria in 1890 to commemorate the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on Janurary 27th. It has since won a ton of awards, inspired a slew of imitators, gone to court for the use of its name, and then went back to settle an international dispute between Austria and Germany over both the use of the name and the shape of the chocolate shell. Needless to say, the Mozart Kugeln is no mere candy.

Made with dark chocolate, hazelnut nougat, and both almond and pistachio marzipan, these kugelns are as delectable as they are sophisticated. Reber Confectionary, a family owned Bavarian company that began making chocolates in 1865, has been producing some of the best Mozart-Kugelns of the past century. Their recipes are based on family traditions, meaning they only use the best, freshest ingredients and never use artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Genuine Reber Mozart-Kugelns are a symphony of flavors in your mouth. Is that too baroque? Genuine Reber Mozart-Kugelns are a concerto of flavors in your mouth! The pistachio marzipan is earthy and slightly bitter, the almond marzipan is sweet with notes of cherry, and the hazelnut nougat is deep, like a strong cup of coffee. The dark chocolate exterior gives the confection a crunch and delicious brightness, holding together all the ingredients and making this treat utterly unique. Like nearly everything Mozart composed, these kugelns are true masterpieces.

As Reber’s motto states, “Alle Zeit Der Welt,” taking a bite of their Mozart-Kugelns is like taking “All the Time in the World” to enjoy their chocolates, to enjoy the escape from the everyday, to enjoy the indulgence and sophistication, and to enjoy yourself.  So enjoy, with taste.
