Caracs, or Food of the Gods
My mother moved to Switzerland when I was six years old, and for years, I spent my summers with her lounging in little sweet cafes. She introduced me to the best Swiss sweet in the world--Caracs, little pie crusts stuffed with chocolate and topped with green icing. Imagine my delight when the staff at Andre's said they could make me a box of Caracs! Should I confess that I ate the whole box of four in about 20 minutes?
