The origin of this dessert bar is not very clear. Some online resources say this has been popular in the Philippines since the 1930’s. Why such name? Probably because the ingredients are too expensive that only the rich people can afford them. The walnuts alone are around Php 750/kilo nowadays arghhh. But it’s worth it! For someone like me who have sold my soul to fruitcakes and the likes of it, I convince myself it’s okay to splurge once in a while. It’s like Christmas in a cookie bar. It’s that heavenly.
