Just like in all Christian countries, Christmas is a big fest in Greece too. During the old days and because Greece is surrounded by sea, people here used to decorate a ship. But as globalization reached our country too, we adopted the northern Europe’s tree which we decorate with ornaments and balls.

As in every fest we have special sweets that we make and offer to our loved ones and friends. Melomakarona, Kourabiedes and Diples are some of the traditional sweets of Christmas. Also during Christmas Day we make the turkey just like the northern Americans, only we make the stuffing with rice and chestnuts and we serve the bird with potatoes from the oven. On New Year’s Eve and after 12:00 at night, when the New Year has entered, we cut the Vasilopita in honor of Saint Basil and what he did during the first Christian years.

I wanted to do something different and try something new for this year and so I made these Chocolate Kourabiedes from a recipe by Stelios Parliaros a very well-known Greek pastry chef.

They were pretty good, but of course they didn’t taste like kourabiedes. So, and since I crave them more often now that we approach Christmas, I think I will make the original ones and post about them too in a coming post.

Till then enjoy these chocolate kourabiedes and have a small taste of Christmas that is coming!
