What to do with leftover nougat, marzipan and polvorones

The same thing happens to us every year, at the end of Christmas the marzipans, nougat, polvorones and other sweets pile up in a closet where we end up forgetting them for months and finally, they end up in the trash. And not only that, we also have a fridge full of prawns, leftover turkey or fish that we bake

At babynamesforgirls we propose original and easy cooking recipes to avoid throwing away all those Christmas sweets or the leftovers of meals and take advantage of them in the preparation of appetizers, first courses, cakes or biscuits.


Recipes to make with the remains of Christmas meals
