Gianduja

Gianduja or gianduia is a sweet chocolate spread containing about 30% hazelnut paste, invented in Turin during Napoléon's regency (1796–1814), when the Mediterranean was under a blockade by the British. A chocolatier in Turin named Michele Prochet, extended the little chocolate he had by mixing it with hazelnuts from the Langhe hills south of Turin.
