There are many different kinds of light sweetbreads that Moroccans have with their coffee or mid-day snack. Sweets, however, while greatly loved, are left for festivals and other special occasions.
Moroccan sweets come in all shapes, sizes, textures and are made with care for special occasions.
Moroccan sweets are usually not too heavy and made with nuts, often almonds, so there is sure to be a fairly healthy choice.
Four of the most famous Moroccan sweets include gazelle horns (crescent-shaped pastries), coiled serpent cake (a flat round of baked almond stuffed pastry coated with sugar and cinnamon, Briouats (triangular or cigar-shaped envelopes of pastry), and coconut fudge cakes. These kinds of sweets are served at birthdays, weddings, or other celebrations.
