Traditional boxes of chocolate are so ordinary. There’s a better, “outside-the-box” way to show your thoughtfulness. Crafted in Salzburg, Austria for more than 150 years, all-natural Mozart Chocolate Creams and Liqueurs are masterpieces made with only high-end ingredients such as rich Belgian chocolate, fresh cream and real Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar.

Chocolate and Valentine’s Day have been tightly linked for more than 150 years, when so-called “eating chocolates” were first invented. Before then, chocolate was primarily enjoyed as a beverage. In fact, European chocolate houses were once as popular as coffee houses for social gatherings. Mozart harkens back to this time when chocolate – the elixir of love – was sipped on its own or blended with other aromatic flavors.

Mozart is available in several seductive flavors including the new Dark Chocolate Liqueur, as well as Milk Chocolate Cream Liqueur, White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur and White Chocolate Cream Strawberry Liqueur. Each is beautifully blended and packaged in their iconic round, hand-foiled bottle.

Even better, you can indulge without sacrifice. All Mozart Cream Liqueurs are lower in fat than most other cream liqueurs, and Mozart Dark Chocolate Liqueur is gluten-free and vegan.

“Nine out of ten people say they adore chocolate, and the tenth person is lying,” jokes CEO and Global Brand Ambassador/mixologist Florian Iro. “Mozart’s all-natural ingredients deliver superior flavor. Enjoy them neat, chilled or over ice, in coffee or cocktails, or even in dessert recipes.”
