beignet in a mixture of almond, powder sugar and cocoa.

Food pairing
A crispy battered beignet, filled with chocolate and crunchy with crystalline sugar and almonds, satisfies every sweet tooth. Chocolate combined with red fruits is a popular pairing, while the beer gives the freshness and acidity needed for balance.
