St. Nicholas Day

St. Nicholas Day Treats

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.

Hi Katy,

I just went through all of sthe St. Nicholas posts. Very interesting, indeed. Isn't it fun to learn and participate in these traditions?

I don't know that St. Nicholas is celebrated in my part of Italy. I haven't seen evidence of it, yet.

Did you ever make the chocolates with the mold?

Happy Day.

I wonder if they make these in Germany. I will have to ask my mother in law. Very cute. We posted you on our blog. My boys had fun making the St. Nicholas craft.

I have to say these are less delicious looking than most of your confections! But the whole St. Nicholas thing is so neat.
