The classic cremino is a classic for a reason. It's a perfectly balanced bite of chocolate.
This creamy chocolatey praline of three layers is renowned and prized for its delicate creaminess. It consists of harmonious layers of pure velvety chocolate gianduja and hazelnut cream made from Piemontese “tonda e gentile” hazelnuts.
Sugar, hazelnuts (28%), cocoa butter, whole milk powder, cocoa mass, emulsifier: soya lecithin, flavors. May contain traces of other nuts.
Cremino Extra Noir
The layers are extra subtle in the extra dark cremino. You can taste the darkness of the chocolate without the extra bitter flavor found in other dark chocolates. It is the classic cremino praline with creamy dark chocolate blended with hazelnut. The chocolate used for the Cremino contains exclusively cacao and cacao butter as in the original recipe.
Gianduja hazelnut milk chocolate (sugar, hazelnuts (24%), cocoa mass, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, fat-reduced cocoa, emulsifier: soya lecithin. Cocoa 30% minimum), hazelnuts (9%), sugar, cocoa butter, whole milk powder, fat-reduced cocoa (2%), cocoa mass, emulsifier: soya lecithin, natural flavors. May contain traces of other nuts.

What is a Cremino?
The Cremino is a layered chocolate, typically square in shape. At Baratti & Milano, our Cremino is renowned for its delicate flavor and remarkably creamy texture. This specialty expresses the expertise and skill of the Piedmont confectionery tradition. The Cremino became the chocolate of Italian royalty and Baratti & Milano the royal chocolatiers.
I thought Creminis were mushrooms.
When we say, "Cremini," we don't mean the mushroom. The word, cremini, is the Italian plural of "cremino." But we do enjoy cremini mushrooms on our pizza!
A unique Italian tasting experience.
For over 160 years, Baratti & Milano developed relationships with the Italian farmers that grow the ingredients for our products. Almost all of our ingredients are sourced from small Italian farmers that grow each nut or fruit to reach their peak perfection. You can taste the Italian craftsmanship.
To be enjoyed:
Truly a phenomenal dessert, this classic cremino pairs well with a Moscato D'asti if you prefer something sweeter or pairs well with a Petite Syrah if you would rather a hint of warm spice and toasty vanilla which brings out the nutty flavor of the Cremino. A cup of black tea accompanies the Cremino nicely as well in an afternoon rut where something sweet is needed!
Extra Noir Cremino
Here the dark chocolate characteristics pair well with a medium bodied red wine, a Sauterne or currently we are enjoying this Cremino with an Elysium dessert wine. The Creminos creamy hazelnut blend mixes wonderfully with the Elysium's burst of cherry and strawberry savor!
