We have something similar, called Dominoes. They are a sponge-like gingerbread topped with a fruit jelley and almond paste, cut into cubes and then covered in chocolate. I love them but have never tried to make them myself.
This comes in handy if you need something to throw at a window.
LOL naah, it'd be a pity to waste them.
(I think that calls for an explanation: the other day I accidentially locked myself out of my apartment and went to my office for my spare key. Unfortunately, that building was locked, too, but there were still a few lights in some offices. For lack of little pebbles to throw at the windows, I used little wild quinces that grow near the office.)
