Typical of Easter, the covered almonds are one of the ex-libris of Moncorvo. The confectionery of these sweets is perhaps known in in this land for over 200 years, and documented references for nearly a century and a half. Currently, they have three versions: just prepared with sugar, these are the almonds "à Bicuda branca"; with sugar, chocolate or cinnamon, are the almonds "à Morena"; and "à peladinha" when the grain is covered by a very thin layer of sugar. They all have beaks that result from rolling the candy on a net, which has to be so hot that it requires the bakers to protect their fingers with thimbles.
