We’ve all tasted the famous “karioka” sweet in Xanthi, and if not, you should try it for sure ! I make an alternative recipe without sponge cake but with moustokoulouro cookie!


  • 250 g butter
  • 450 g moustouloura or pours
  • 350 g. melted couverture
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of walnuts or hazelnuts or coarse-ground pistachios
  • 3 tsp cocoa powder
  • 500-600 gr. couverture melted for the coating
  • 200 g coconut grated (optional)


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and leave aside. Melt the chocolate in bacon marin or in the microwave for 30 pieces.
  2. Break the moustokouloura cookies (in large pieces) by hand and put them in a bowl. Then add the 350 grams of melted chocolate, melted butter, cinnamon, nuts and cocoa. Stir well and spread on two different stickers and make 2 sticks the size you want.
  3. Then put them in the refrigerator for about 2 hours . Afrer, open the baking sheet and slicing approximately in slices of 2 cm. Apply the slices on a rack and pour molten chocolate from above until they are covered on both sides and put them in a fridge to freeze the chocolate.
