While running a few errands in Valletta yesterday, I stopped to buy some good quality cocoa from a particular little old baking shop. While there I spotted a little display of maybe 15 different varieties of these and couldn't resist. I think they are little liquors that one could use to flavor cakes and things but am not entirely sure. No one in the shop could tell me, nor could they tell me exactly what the different types were in English (the box is entirely in Italian). I loved the size and nifty packaging, so chose a few (may be making chocolate truffles come christmas time you see). Wonder what Sassolino is? Am guessing that the Prunella one I bought is some kind of prune liquor? and why the old witch looking lady?
(I included the cup to give you a sense of the size)
