aiwa-sensei:

My friend xulm and I made up this ” let’s draw Polish sweets gijinka” challenge. So we did.

In order:

Prince Polo is a chocolate bar and as long been Poland’s top-selling candy brand.

Ptasie mleczko (literally “bird’s milk”) is a soft chocolate-covered candy filled with soft meringue

Princessa is a Polish chocolate bar made by Nestlé similar to, and in competition to, the longer established Prince Polo - it’s a chocolate covered wafer bar (here- coconut flavour. The only one I ever liked)

Sezamki  (sesame seed candy)  is a confection of sesame seeds and sugar or honey pressed into a bar

Maybe one day we’ll continue those. It was fun making them.

Go check out XULM’s sweets too!

Krówki ([ˈkrufki], plural; Krówka singular), literally “little cows,” are Polish fudge, semi-soft milk toffee candies.

It is one of the most common Polish confectioneries, sold worldwide, and might be considered “dulce de Leche candy”. Commercially, many brands are available; most of them have each individual candy wrapped in white-and-yellow paper with a picture of a Holstein cow. Widely known across Europe even before the end of the Cold War, they are something of an equivalent of the White Rabbit Creamy Candy famous across East Asia.

The original recipe usually contains milk, sugar, and sometimes butter, cream and vanilla flavor. There are also chocolate and coffee flavored krówki available, as well as versions made from soy milk for lactose intolerant consumers. Krówki can be prepared at home, using a simple cast iron pan and the above-mentioned ingredients.
The first krówki were produced in Poznań, later the Pomorski family was expelled by Nazi Germans to Milanówek near Warsaw during World War II.
