ARGENTINE PEANUT BUTTER CANDY
Mantecol is a typical dessert of the cuisine of Argentina, a sort of semi-soft nougat made from peanut butter. It was originally created and marketed in the 1940s by the confectionery company Georgalos. Founded by a Greek immigrant family, his main reference, Miguel Georgalos, took the inspiration in a dessert of Greek cuisine, the halva.
It is very popular in Argentina, where it is used as daily candy (especially in the colder months), as well as classic dessert of the Christmas table.
