Dark Chocolate "Hiballs" Filled with Scotch and Vodka
K HIBALLS from K Chocolatier and Diane Krön are filled with Blue Label Scotch and Ketel One Vodka. OK...let's face it...those are good combos. And from the looks of the picture, they didn't skimp on the booze.
K Chocolatier is a family run business based in Malibu, CA. They've been around for a long time and still make daily batches of their chocolates themselves in their own factory. The recipe is a variation of those of chocolate once exclusive to Emperor Franz Josef of Austro-Hungary. In order to have the shopping experience first hand, you'll have to go to Cali. But they are also now selling online.
A little more background:
"In 1973, Diane and Tom Krön established Krön Chocolatier in New York City based on recipes from Tom's great grandfather, chocolate-maker to Emperor Franz Josef of Austro-Hungary. They soon became very famous for the quality and novelty of their chocolates (Tom invented the chocolate-covered strawberry) and opened many Krön stores across the U.S. Diane and Tom Krön sold Krön Chocolatier in 1983 and retired from the chocolate business to travel and raise their family. New management took over and the company went in other directions. Now Diane Krön is back ! Lured by the excitement of Beverly Hills, Diane decided to develop a new company, and in 2000, created a new brand of luxury chocolates with new combinations and more sophisticated recipes. K CHOCOLATIER is based on those secret Krön family formulations of cocoa powder ratio and viscosity, but with a difference: using as little sugar as possible."
