Our marrons glacés: trade secrets

la grande épicerie de Paris - Les marrons Glacés

As the festive season approaches, La Grande Épicerie de Paris reveals the secrets of making one of its most iconic confectioneries: marrons glacés. Made in France with the greatest respect for tradition, these precious morsels are the result of a unique expertise.
The chestnuts are thoroughly cleaned before being swathed in fine tulle so that they retain their beautiful, round shape. Once cooked they are candied; over several days, in a Madagascan vanilla syrup that gently flavours their fondant flesh.
Next, each chestnut is coated with a fine layer of sugar. Crystallising them in the oven gives them the characteristic brilliance of marrons glacés.


To enjoy or to enjoy giving, wait no longer to try our gift boxes of 9, 12 and 18 marrons glacés, available online and in both our stores.
