This bite-sized treat and historic tidbit originated in local monasteries as a secret recipe passed down through the ages.

Thank you, Jim, for sharing this delightful #SweetSpot and travel tip. Check out Jim’s other discoveries and follow him on Trover to get the dish on his next travel find. Congrats, Jim!
