BPAL Madness!

Recommended Posts

A classic Sicilian recipe alternating layers of chocolate sponge cake, hazelnut Bavarian cream, chocolate mousse, and hazelnut praline crunch, all enrobed in a dark chocolate mirror glaze.

Rich chocolate mousse, lots and lots of bavarian cream and a bit of crunchy, sticky praline. Basically just as described! Although it's way more creamy than cakey to me! Makes me want to try and bake this someday..

My favorite of my first Weenie order! 
 

I get dark creamy chocolate but also a rich hazelnut, the same hazelnut I love from The Empress & Their Heckhound, with maybe a tinge of cake if I really try to smell it, but everything is blended really well. 
 

This is like almost like a fancy Nutella, with the fuzzy hazelnut really elevating the scent - love love love!

Oooooh. This one's for chocolate lovers!

 

Rich, dark, creamy chocolate - I agree that it's creamy, like the mousse or even the mirror glaze in the description, and not cake-y at all! And then there's a swirl of nuttiness - hazelnut & praline. The fancy Nutella description is a good one!

 

It's a big decadent scent - I can see this getting a lot of wear in cold weather, or at cozy holiday parties. 🙂

I should have not pulled the trigger blindly on this one. I hoped this would be a gooey, viscous decadent choco desert, but sadly it didn't get there. Generally the BPAL choco gourmands are not skin-friendly with me, except for Bliss.

 

It didn't have the oomph i expected and sadly turned into thin chocolate powder with hints of hazelnuts. I'm sad 🥺

I get lots of the dry texture of the cake crumb at first, along with some hazelnut. It gets creamier as it sits on the skin, so that after a while, it is chocolate-y hazelnut-infused cream and mousse with just a much lighter cake note.

 

I like this enough to keep the decant, but I'm not sure I need more than that, even though this is different enough from other chocolate offerings due to the hazelnut. That said, I do like it more than Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (which I blind bottled).

Wow! This is now my penultimate favorite chocolate BPAL. The chocolate is dark, dry and decadent. The hazelnut is there, but not overpowering. I don't actually get much of a cake or creamy experience with this, but, it's sweet enough that it's clearly foodie.
