Belarus Zefir Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Confection
One of the best kept secrets of western Russia and Belarus is this traditional delicacy. Package is 300gr, 12 confections.
Zefir is a type of soft confectionary made by whipping fruit and berry puree with marshmallow.
The name is given after the Greek god of the west wind Zephyr, which symbolizes it's delicate airy consistency. Somewhat similar to marshmallows but more like a dark chocolate covered berry meringue.
I just tried one for the first time, heavenly! Perfect balance of dark chocolate flavor and undertones of fruit (orange and/or apricot) in a firm consistency. I can't think of a comparison available in the USA. Anyone will LOVE this!
