The cocon from Lyon, a story about silk and canuts

The cocon | / CC-BY-NC-SA

This chocolate is a cocon ("cocoon") because Lyon is the city of silk!

This creation dates back to 1954: it’s a chocolate with sugared nuts delicately flavoured with curaçao liqueur and orangeat (a kind of orange jam made with peels).

The coating is made in a yellow almond paste.
