ABOUT Panpepato Italian Christmas Treat RECIPE

I watch Silvia Colloca shows on Fox life and love them. I referred her recipe to make this classic Italian christmas dish with tons of dried figs and nuts and of course chocolate! I would say this is more of a sticky fudge. Do not expect it to be like a cake as we do not add baking powder/soda.
