Wednesday, December 1
These tasty, charming little men have been in the bakeries around here for nearly a month now. They show up in late October and disappear after December 6th - St. Nicholas Day. They are called Boxemannchen. The majority of these little guys are made from brioche. Each bakery puts their own creative stamp on their Boxemannchen - chocolate, powdered sugar, faces, a pipe, lollipop, glaze - doesn't matter, they're all delicious.
