Cuberdon candy

Everybody knows Belgian chocolate, but what about the Cuberdon candy? For many Belgians (and certainly for myself) a beloved childhood taste, but unknown outside our frontiers.

The Cuberdon candy

The recipe, that dates back to the 19th century, is a well kept secret only known by a handful of *confisiers *(aka candy makers). You can recognize a classic cuberdon as a violet collared sugar cone.
