1890 The Mozartkugel originates from Mozart‘s birthplace: Salzburg
About 100 years after the incredibly gifted composer W. A. Mozart had lived and worked, Paul Fürst, a master confectioner from Salzburg, developed the Mozartkugel. He began by forming small balls of marzipan, which he coated in a praline cream before spearing them on little wooden sticks. After that, he dipped these balls in warm bittersweet chocolate until coated with an even chocolate layer. This was the birth of the Mozartkugel.
