Flamigini marrons glace pieces are a great gift for chestnut lovers, or for your own Christmas creations. The pieces of specially selected whole chestnuts from Campania are carefully steamed and peeled, then candied by hand.

Enjoy a few pieces of marrons glace with tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Or use to decorate festive desserts and homemade chocolates.

Flamigni’s marrons glace are made according to one of the first marron glace recipes ever recorded, set down in Turin in 1790.

Flamigni started in 1930 as a pastry and coffee shop in Forli, in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Three brothers, Armando, Lieto and Aurelio Flamigni saw great success with their traditional Italian pastries. In the 1970s, the son-in-law of one of the Flamigni brothers encouraged the company to try their hand at other Italian specialities. Armed with their expertise in cakes and pastries, Flamigni developed their range of nougat, panettones and other confectionery.

Flamigni try to use traditional recipes, equipment and techniques wherever possible. They use one of the first marron glace recipes ever recorded, they make their nougat in traditional copper pots, and their biscuits are made using traditional methods that have been handed down through generations. In this way they hope to preserve Italy's confectionery-making heritage for future generations to enjoy.

Ingredients: chestnuts, sugar, glucose-fructose syrup, natural vanilla flavour. Product is subject to natural weight reduction.
