Mona de Pascua chocolate cakes appear in the windows of bakeries and confectionary stores around Easter. They are decorated with Easter themes and are adored by children. However, you don't have to be a child to try one of them.

Traditionally, Mona de Pascua had the shape of a doughnut and was topped with boiled and coloured Easter eggs. However, now it’s more common to decorate this beloved treat with chocolate eggs, filled with jam. Also, don’t be surprised to see feather, chicken and colorful cartoon characters atop of that cake.

Bakeries sell hundreds of thousands of Mona de Pascua during Easter holidays, so there are plenty of varieties that could indulge any sweet tooth.
