I'm afraid most all of you are missing out on this German pastry delicacy known as "Little Mountain Peaks" (also called "mountain climber" or "shrapnel" in some parts of the country):

cocoa, buttercream, waffle floor & shortcrust mixed together, covered in dark chocolate. So yummy 💕


@fribbledom I am German and have never heard of it. What is the German name and in which region is it common?

@alays @fribbledom which would be shrapnel translated to english :blobcheeky:


"Gipferl", "Bergsteiger" oder "Granatsplitter".

Rather popular in the south, but I've also seen them in Berlin and Cologne.
