A subtle mixture of finely ground sweet almonds, candied melon and orange peel, all set on a bed of host, and covered with royal ice: the recipe of the calisson of Aix has remained unchanged since its creation for the pleasure of a queen. 

The art and the way of making these sweets have crossed the centuries. Since 1454, it is still and always the same magic formula which makes law: to 1/3 of almonds, mix 1/3 of candied melon of Apt, and 1/3 of very hot sugar syrup.
