How They’re Made

Original Salzburger Mozartkugel

SINCE 1890

In 1890, Salzburg master confectioner Paul Fürst first created the now world-famous Salzburg Mozartkugel. In 1905, he was awarded a gold medal for his incredibly popular product at a Paris exhibition.

Today, his great-great-grandson and current owner of the company – Martin Fürst – still produces this first-class speciality following the traditional recipe and process – and rightly calls the result the “Original Salzburg Mozartkugel”.


Always fresh

Our Mozartkugeln are made using the traditional recipe and only carefully selected, natural ingredients – fresh, by hand, in our own kitchen.

Original Salzburger Mozartkugeln are made with marzipan and pistachios, nougat and dark chocolate. To achieve a perfectly round shape, each and every piece is skewered onto a wooden stick before being dipped in chocolate. This traditional method is still being used today.

This is what separates our Original Salzburger Mozartkugeln from the rest. The skilled handiwork that goes into our treats and the wooden stick method make each piece one-of-a-kind.


Unchanging tradition

Using an intricate process and the same recipe developed by creator Paul Fürst, Original Salzburger Mozartkugeln are still made by hand today.

This is something quite special! Each pistachio-marzipan centre is placed on a small wooden stick and dipped in dark chocolate by hand. From there, they go on to set, the stick is removed, and each Mozartkugel is given the finishing touch – a dollop of extra chocolate.


Pistachio-marzipan and nougat

Original Salzburger Mozartkugel feature a core of marzipan mixed with pistachio paste. This pistachio-marzipan centre is then wrapped in a layer of delicate nougat.

Plenty of work goes into skewering each individual core of the Original Salzburger Mozartkugel onto a wooden stick by hand, before dipping it in dark chocolate.


Made by hand

Each and every Mozartkugel is hand-dipped in dark chocolate.


Place on boards to set

Excess chocolate is allowed to drip off the Mozartkugeln and the stick is then placed vertically on a board with the Mozartkugeln pointing upwards to allow the chocolate to cool and set.


Remove the stick and

Once set, the stick is removed and the hole that is left is sealed by hand with chocolate.


Sealing each treat with chocolate results in a small bump that is characteristic and unique to each and every Original Salzburg Mozartkugel.

Our history and tradition are reflected above all in the high quality of our products, and the fact that everything is still made by hand.
