Baci (Italian Chocolate-Hazelnut Kisses)

There is a wonderful chocolate-hazelnut confection produced by Perugina called Baci.    Pronounced BAH-chee, it is the Italian word for kisses.

Looking nothing like the American Hershey's Kiss, Baci is a more sophisticated Italian treat.  While the standard Kiss is a lump of plain milk chocolate wrapped in plain foil and packed with a paper strip reminding you that it's a HERSHEY KISS, Baci is a chocolate-hazelnut mixture wrapped in foil stamped with blue stars and packed with varying love notes.
