Mozart Balls - Vienna

Throughout Austria, the sweet treat to eat is Mozartkugeln. A small ball of pistachio and almond marzipan covered in a layer of nougat, and then enveloped in layers of milk chocolate. First produced in Salzburg by confectioner Paul Furst in 1890 and named after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The phrase hyperdeliciously mouthwateringly splendidly mindboggling comes nowhere near describing the taste, believe me.



Sadly, Mozart himself never got a chance to taste these delectable sweets, as he died a century before Paul Furst produced them. But just imagine the inspired music he might have written with a bowl of Mozartkugeln beside him on the harpsichord!

Think positive. At least they are NOT 'deflated'.

Hmm, might have gotten the harpsichord keys sticky with all that goodness. :-)

That sounds delicious, I take it you sampled a few to make sure you liked them? ;)

Mmm...yummy-I think that a bit of sweet, especially some chocolate makes everything seem so much better-but that is definitely one woman's totally biased opinion--haha!!

Clever marketing ploy to ensure Austrians tasted these wonderful sounding treats

Oh, I think I need a few of those tasty morsels.
Yes Mozart would have composed a masterpiece to this amazing confection.

Okay, so am I the only immature one who is amused by Mozart Balls?

Thanks for your kind words about Skitty, Shammie. I hope we can indeed get together soon. Hugs to you.
