It's December 1st, which to some means it's time to start an advent calendar. I made this one for the most recent Christmas Expo at the @epgb_barcelona. It consists of 24 hollow chocolate cubes, each with a number date on it, and within each cube a chocolate bar shaped like a tree trunk (inspired by the idea of the Bûche de Noël). Each bar is different, with seasonal and nostalgia flavors, like pumpkin pie, caramel apples, candy cane, fruit cake, etc. Each day you lift a cube to reveal a different bar. And of course you can eat the cube too! Recipes are in the newest @revistadulcypas magazine. 

These are the bars:
