The Story Behind Sweetie Pies And How To Make Your Own

Do you know the story behind the delightful and charming little Sweetie Pie? This seductive mouthful of soft marshmallow with its crunchy cookie or wafer base and smooth chocolate casing is traditionally from Denmark.

These Danish sweets are called Flodebolle, meaning cream balls as they were originally made with cream. The whipped and sweetened egg white gives the sweets a longer shelf life and today it is the preferred and much-loved filling.

Chef Eric Bulpitt and the Pierneef à La Motte pastry team added two dainty drops of rose essence to the recipe and the result is a flavourful and fluffy treat.
