Kohuke- chocolate glazed quark snack is very popular dessert for children breakfast.
Kohuke is basically freshly pressed sweet curd covered in chocolate or caramel. There are plain as well as flavoured varieties filled with things like berries, chocolate, coconut and kiwifruit.
Kohuke is popular throughout the Baltic countries and can be found in Russia and other Eastern-European states as well. These little things actually don’t have much of a history – they’re about 70 years old and were something of a cult food during the Soviet regime. They disappeared as soon as they hit the shelves of Soviet stores in the 50s due to the constant shortage,
Because of quark, Kohuke is rich with protein and because of chocolate, it is energy bar:)
Let’s do Kohuke at home as pop-cakes.
