Maffren Confiseur Mini Calissons rose is a delectable speciality formed of candied fruit (mostly melon and orange) and crushed almonds, and it is topped with a thin coating of white icing to finish it off. A delicate combination of finely crushed almonds and candied fruit, with a hint of honey and orange blossom to give it a distinct flavor and aroma. It has a flavor that is similar to marzipan, but with a fruitier undertone. The rose-flavored topping adds a splash of color and flavor to this classic recipe, making it even more appealing.
Daniel Maffren created Maffren Confiseur in the Provençal town of Le Poët in 1945. Daniel Maffren is a third-generation confectioner. It is well-known for its superb nougats and calissons, among other things.
