Little Bites of Strasbourg--Swedish Bombes

One of our favorite recent finds in the Strasbourg Christmas market are Swedish Bombes. I think they're called something a little less PC in France, so I'll stick to the German translation. They're a wonderful concoction of a creamy, fresh marshmallow (think marshmallow mixed with mousse) covered in chocolate and flavored with cinnamon, mint, coconut, rum, coffee, and other yummy flavors. I think this will quickly become our new Achilles heel for the season!

Here's the pretty average picture I got yelled at for taking and in turn made me feel so guilty that I bought some. Sometimes a little uncomfortableness is worth it!

The box of 15 that we started out with, including croquant, rum, coconut, cafe mocha, strawberry, cinnamon and mint:

And the favorite unanimously was the mint:

A view of the creamy inside:

We still have a few leftover, but we'll be going back soon for more!

Those a beautiful! Some day I will make it some Christmas markets in Europe. It is a personal goal. I always end up being there in the summer. I'm loving your posts!

Joie and ChefE, They taste as good as they look (actually better!)

Lori, This is my first Christmas market experience. We usually travel here in the summer too. I love Christmas, so I'm like a kid in a candy store (both figuratively and literally)!

I know, I know...I've been cooking, just haven't had time to post anything! It's the end of the semester, so my husband and I have been busy with the students...

I promise I'll post something this weekend!

Those look really yummy. I would so love to live in Europe for awhile. You will have memories to last a lifetime. You just can't get that kind of experience with a few days here and there.
