It’s hard to describe the complex flavors of this South American bean; the aroma and taste remind me of almonds, cinnamon, and vanilla. When I trained at Valrhona in France we made chocolates with grated tonka beans, and I was excited to taste tonka bean bonbons during a recent visit.
I bought a bag of these beans at one of my favorite shops (G. Detou) and created my own version of Tonka Bean bonbons. You will be surprised at the flavor; it’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted.
