THE DESSERTS, SWEETS AND CONFECTIONS OVERVIEW

RETURN TO MAIN FOOD OVERVIEW

Sugar, sugar and more sugar. What goes better with a nice meal then a wonderful dessert. This section of the Compendium is dedicated to those foods rich in sugar; candies, cakes, pies, and cookies. Desserts, sweets and confections currently found in the Compendium are as follows:

The Baych Nuts

BAYCH NUTS
Rather sweet naturally, these triangular little nuts are often tossed with melted milchbutter and crystallized honey to intensify their mellow flavour, then set in a hot oven to form a candied treat. Return to the top
 

BROKEN CRYSTAL CANDY
A simple candy made from sugar, maple syrup and foridas juice. This candy may be served in broken pieces or on a stick like a lollipop.

BUTTERBALL DELIGHT
A hobbit favourite, these delicious balls of foridite and butter flavours melt in your mouth when eaten. This delectable treat has become popular outside the Shires for any time of day or occasion. Between hobbit families, and those outside of the shires who have attempted to recreate, variations can be found all over Sarvonia. Children are particularly fond of these as they are small, sweet, and easy to slip into one's pockets unnoticed. Return to the top
 

DAINBEL PIE
After the ever-so-popular malsapple pie spread through the kingdom, it was not long before variations were made. The Dainbel Pie is one such variation. Using dainbel berries to replace most of the malsapples allowed the use of less foridite; thus this pie became a popular dish among lowly and rich alike.

DARK PETTIES ("CHOCOLATE PREZZERS")
Chocolate-covered Prezzers are a combination of sweet and salty. The salty Prezzer taken and covered in melted Krath chocolate, is a perfect treat for those seeking salty and sweet taste at the same time. Chocolate-covered Prezzers also have a variety of other names, the most prominent among them being "Dark Petty", "Kao-Kao Petties", "Chocoprezzers". Return to the top
 

FÁBERIGE HEARTS
The fat red berry is sliced vertically to form heart-shapes, which are then dipped in sweetened cream or a thick kao-kao sauce. Very indulgent and considered a stimulant to romance. Return to the top
 

HONEYED MELDARS
A popular sweetened snack or dessert: the sharp little apples are peeled and cut into bite-size pieces before having honey poured over them. They must be eaten with a sharpened stick or the point of one's eating knife to avoid hopelessly sticky fingers. Return to the top
 

KAO-KAO AND DOCH NUT COOKIES
Probably the most famous and popular cookie in Santharia, if not indeed all of Sarvonia! Who needs to know more than that they contain large chunks of chocolatey kao-kao and bits of mellow doch nuts, imbedded in a rich batter which is baked to a sweetly aromatic golden brown... and particularly excellent with a mug of cool milch straight from the dairy! Please excuse the marks on this page... kao-kao does tend to stain paper irrevocably. Return to the top
 

KAO-KAO FRUIT BALLS KISSES
Imagine the taste of meldarraple, lorriv berry, doch nut and dark kao kao all mixed up into one ball. The deliciious Kao-Kao fruit ball kisses are a definite favourite of old and young alike.

KING'S FAVOURITE
Milch Semms are not eaten shortly after they came out of the oven, but that they were left to get dry, a delicious dessert can be created out of them, which the Santhalian people call the King's Favorite, due to a story of a queen who gained back the heart of her husband by inventing this bakery item.

KRATH CHOCOLATE (KHOFÚHSHÁTÍ)
The highly-prized confectionary
Khofúhsháti comes in a variety of shapes, kinds, flavours and sizes. The favoured Lillivear sweet is made from the yellow-green pods of the shághách tree. The final product is a richly flavoured brown bar whose shape and color fluctuates with the demands of the customer and the type of shághách tree. Some Lillivear manufacturers also practice a method to produce decidedly scented Khofúhsháti as well. Return to the top
 

 

LOBRIRE'S DELIGHT
Lobrire's Delight is one of a most loved dessert among hobbits, originating in a small family owned bakery in Helmonds Shire owned by the Lobrire's family. This sweet dessert was made by Mr. Lobrire's himself while he was trying to create a pastry but found it very troublesome so he just poured the filling into a crust. He then found it very good, and started to sell it. Soon it became a sensation, every hobbit loved it and it has since delighted hobbits, humans, and elves alike. Return to the top
 

LORIVLUVS
This delectable 'cluster cookie' is made with dried and sweetened loriv berries. The buttery dough is mixed with as many berries as it will hold, then dropped onto heated sheets to crisp in a well-stoked baker's oven.

MOONLIGHT PIE
This dessert is prepared using the fruit of the cavernfire bush. A delicacy of the Susilgerim dwarves, the Moonlight Pie's specialty lies in its glittering light. Since the leaves and fruit of the Cavernfire bush are luminescent, this pie is as well. It is a Susilgerim tradition to turn the lights down low for the presentation of this dish, making it a perfect time for young dwarf suitors to express their love and admiration to their maidens of choice. This dish is often served during the Time of Choosing at communal gatherings, and is also said to be a traditional wedding dish.
