12 Cribs of Christmas 6

 
A chocolate crib - what is not to like?!
This fine example can be found in Valzani on Via del Moro in Trastevere. Other Christmas treats here include pangiallo, a Roman speciality cake made with honey, nuts and dried fruit and mostaccioli Romano, diamond shaped spiced biscuits covered in dark chocolate.

 
Valzani is perhaps most well known for Sachertorte, said to be the best in Rome and beloved of the film director, Nanni Moretti. This decadent chocolate dessert harks back to the days of Austrian domination of Italy.
