Sweet Sunday: The Five Almonds (Les Cinq Amandes)


Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is enjoying their Columbus Day Weekend. In case you will be hosting any parties soon, I would love to share with you this enchanting chocolate company, founded in 2007 under the name Les Cinq Amandes 0r the five Almonds. When I first tried their almonds over the summer, I never realized that they were more than just almonds. These almonds were given to me as a post party gift I attended in August.

The first thing I noticed about the artisinal dragées were that they were incredibly smooth, like polished pebbles you would find while walking up and down the seashore. The colors were so gorgeous, and if you take a look at their website, they come in tons of different colors from white and cobalt blue to a sea-foam green and bright red.

These almonds are so perfect for house guests, weddings, birthdays, and more. Plus what you can do is color coordiante them, and have them be a part of your beautifully decorated party/event. I recommending choosing two or three colors that match with coordinate well. A particular product of theirs that I would love to try are their pretty edible pearls, that you could purchase here. How about the white chocolate crisp pearls? Have you ever heard of anything like that before? How tasty and elegant do they sound!? I love adding edible pearls (dragées) to cakes; it adds such a sophisticated touch and glamorous texture to a white or ivory fondant layer cake.

You can purchase their confectioneries from their website. They offer complimentary ground shipping for orders $79 and up. For more information, please visit http://the5almonds.com
