Neuhaus, the Inventors of the 'praline'

Fine food

Neuhaus is passionate about creating exquisite chocolates. For 160 years now, the chocolatier handles top-quality ingredients. Combining excellent knowhow and craftsmanship, luxurious gift boxes make their creations a pleasure to both give and receive. When Jean Neuhaus arrived in Brussels in 1857, he opened his apothecary store in the prestigious Queen’s Gallery. To make the taste of his medicines more enjoyable, he covered them in a layer of chocolate. His grandson, Jean Neuhaus Jr., inherited his passion for chocolate. He had the idea of replacing the medicine inside the chocolate with delicious fillings and thus, in 1912, he invented the first ‘praline’ or filled chocolate. A few years later, the wife of Jean Neuhaus Jr. invented the ballotin box, an elegant wrapping that elevated chocolate to a luxury gift. The passion of Jean Neuhaus for chocolate is still strongly present in the wide range of Neuhaus chocolates today. Each praline is graced with its own shape, flavour and name. All Neuhaus chocolates are made in the chocolate ateliers in Brussels, Belgium.
