The elegant Ballotin box is one of Payard’s classic and best-selling items. The hand-packed box contains a stunning assortment of Francois’ favorite chocolate delights. The large array of items creates a medley of flavors individually hand crafted by the chef. Sample the full scope of the Payard collection today with the Ballotin Box.

In collaboration with Philippe Givre of Valrhona, French pastry chef and assistant director of the famed L’Ecole du Grand Chocolat, Chef Payard has created an exclusive chocolate collection using the internationally acclaimed Valrhona chocolate.  After much testing, François chose three distinct varieties—Jivara Milk Chocolate, Guanaja Dark Chocolate and Caraibe and Manjari Chocolate—each of which bolster the unique notes of the other premium ingredients curated from around the world.

The box includes:

70% Guanaja Dark Chocolate with Vanilla Bean – Guanaja chocolate is unique to a tiny island off the coast of Honduras. Payard’s recipe maintains the natural flavors of this uncommon and extraordinary chocolate. The dark, smoky tones of the 70% Guanaja are softened by just a hint of vanilla bean. This velvety chocolate is a surprising new take on an old favorite.

Jivara Milk & Caraibe Dark Chocolate with Salted Caramel and Vanilla Bean – This is not like any caramel you’d had before. The satiny blend of chocolate and salted caramel uses just a hint of vanilla bean to create an exquisitely mellow, satiny taste.

66% Grand Cru Caraibe & Manjari Chocolate with Jasmine Tea – The Caraibe and Manjari chocolates hail from the spellbinding island of Madagascar, and the chocolates have sharp, fresh tones. A jasmine tea infusion makes this piece provocative and exotic, evoking the sultry allure of the Orient in each bite.


Jivara Milk Chocolate with Fresh Key Lime – This milk chocolate is filled with a silky chocolate ganache infused with the bold tones of key lime. The fruity, almost tangy lime is tempered by the sweet Jivara chocolate, and the result is a bright and exciting taste.


66% Grand Cru Caraibe & Manjari with Raspberry Coulis – Caraibe and Manjari chocolates come from the island of Madagascar, and together with the full and fruity raspberry the flavors evoke spicy tropical passion.


Mendiants – This traditional French confection has a rich history. The dark or white chocolate medallion is studded with pistachio, almond, hazelnut, walnut and golden raisin. The nuts and dried fruits historically represent the Mendicants, or monastic orders of France. This is your chance to sample Payard’s take on this simple French classic.


Vanilla Rum Truffles – Velvety chocolate ganache infused with the sharp, bright flavor of rum, mellowed by the soft tones of vanilla. The truffles are coated with a light dusting of cocoa powder to round out the striking blend.


Rochers – Crunchy wafer cluster coated with white or dark chocolate. “Rocher” comes from the French for “rock,” but these delicate, airy delights are a light and crispy treat.
