Baci di Dama – Hazelnut Butter Biscuits with Dark Chocolate Filling, 350g



SKU: 5roe100car


Baci di Dama means “Lady’s Kisses” Each biscuit is baked then cooled, piped with the chocolate filling one side, then lovingly “kissed” together every single time by hand. They are then gently placed, one by one, into the jar, which you can use again and again.

Baci di dama originates from a Panoficio in the town of Tortona in the Northern Italian region of Piemonte. They were created in the 19th Century as a way to utilize hazelnuts that are local to the Piedmont region.

According to a legend, and who doesn’t like a story of legend at Christmas, Baci di dama was born from the mind of a cook of the Savoy family in the autumn of 1852, after Vittorio Emanuele II asked him to develop a new sweet. This is why the fondant chocolate that unites the two halves in a marriage of taste, is claimed to be of royal origin.
