Pierre Marcolini Chocolates

This year's festive chocolate creations from haute chocolaterie Pierre Marcolini promises to be an interstellar journey of the senses.

The collection's centrepiece, the Planète Noël, is made with the Maison’s finest white chocolate wreathed in an intense dark chocolate ellipse.

The planet sits atop a box with two drawers filled with exquisite little treats: the first an assortment of smooth-centred truffles; the second with miniature praline planets.

There are also the Mini Lunes, which are starry miniature moons and they come in two versions: Maison milk and white chocolate (red) or Maison dark and white chocolate (dark red).

There are more than 30 Pierre Marcolini stores globally, including Belgium, France, the UK, Monaco, Japan and China.
