- Christmas log
It is a perfect proposal to put the icing on the cake for an exquisite Christmas Eve dinner or, if you think it may be too much, you can reserve it for Christmas lunch. Also known as 'La Buche de Nöel', the Christmas log is a tradition that comes from different European countries, such as Germany, and that the main ingredient is chocolate, although it can also be filled with cream or cream and garnished with nuts . Do you know that its origin had nothing to do with baking? In many things, a beautiful and durable log was chosen to burn in the fireplace all Christmas Day, but in the 19th century this tradition passed into the world of gastronomy.
- Flavored nougat
Undoubtedly, nougats are the most typical sweets of these dates, especially in Spain, where it does locate its origin. Although there is currently a lot of variety, it would not hurt for children to ask their grandparents what the nougat they ate in their time was like, and that is that there was only the hard or the soft. If you dare to prepare this sweet, just know that it takes time and that it needs several days of rest before you can swell the tooth.
They are very attractive to children because different shapes can be made without changing their taste. Marzipans came to Europe through the Muslims, back in the 8th century, at least that is what the legend tells. In any case, it is a sweet that cannot be missing from any Christmas tray and can be eaten at any time of the day.
- Roscón de Reyes
We are facing a traditional sweet with a great presence in Spain. Formerly it was the delicacy that was eaten as dessert on January 6, once the children had already received the gifts from the Magi. But something so rich could not be restricted to a single day, so it is increasingly common to find it in stores and in homes since the Christmas festivities begin. The Roscón de Reyes began as a bun without filling, then cream was introduced into it, and now you can find, in turn, cream or truffle.
