The Salzburg company Mirabell used to produce their Echte Salzburger Mozartkugeln by hand according to the Mozartkugel tradition.
This labor-intensive manual process, however, could not meet growing consumer demand. Therefore, Mirabell developed its original handmade production into an industrial process. Nevertheless, 14 working stages and a manufacturing time of 2 ½ hours are still necessary for each perfectly round delicacy: A marzipan center, surrounded by layers of dark and light chocolate praline cream, coated in finest rich dark chocolate.
In comparison to alternative industrially manufactured products that take the name Mozartkugel, the Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel from Mirabell is unique. It is the only one to be completely round and is still produced in the spirit of the original recipe in Salzburg, the city where Mozart was born.
