Marabou’s Schweizer Nöt

Or “milk chocolate with hazelnuts”. As you like. This bar has been called Sweden’s favorite chocolate bar, and I can see why. Smooth chocolate that’s just the right amount of sweet, studded with lots of chunks of hazelnuts. 

Yep, you just heard a dark chocolate disciple praise milk chocolate. Savor it, because that doesn’t happen often. Savor this chocolate while you’re at it. Each bar can be broken into 25 half-inch squares. Each “serving” is about ten squares, but to be honest? Two or three are more than enough to satisfy. Why? This chocolate is flavorful and packs a lot of enjoyment in each wee square. And there are enough nuts so each bite can be considered healthy, right? Sure.

The cocoa percentage isn’t listed, but as it’s milk chocolate I’m guessing it’s below 35%. That said, it’s surprising that the saturated fat isn’t much higher; I’ve seen dark chocolate with almost double the amount of sat-fat than this bar. Yet there’s a smoothness that makes this chocolate taste decadent, sinful. That’s a good thing, folks. The chocolate itself has a nice chew, but melts quickly as most milk chocolate do, leaving the hazelnut chunks for crunch.

Pair this with a glass of milk or your favorite bubbly, some sliced apples or pears, or just nibble a square or two for a quick treat.
