Alsatian Christmas cookies (bredele) comes in many variations of shapes and flavors. Every family bake their own cookies and have their own traditions when it comes to these small treats. These chocolate snowballs are crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I recommend preparing several batches with different chocolate each time, this way they will last longer.

It is common to make these cookies long in advance before Christmas, as early as in November. This has to do with that the cookies are usally placed in a tin box with a baking paper.
This is a sponge roll with a different jam made of the mini plums named Mirabelle. They are typical fruits of the region Lorraine in the north east of France. These plums are mainly eaten as fruit but also very popular for jam or other dessert due to their sweetness.
