Production in the past

In 1890 when Paul Fürst, master confectioner in Salzburg, created a new chocolate speciality and named it after the city’s great musical genius, either to commemorate him or by intuition, he made it by hand. He covered a center of marzipan with a layer of dark praline cream and coated that with a light praline cream. He then dipped this ball into dark smooth chocolate.

Production nowadays

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.
