Dia de La Candelaria Menu – U.S. and Germany

Do you remember the rosca I made? Well who ever found the figurine has to host Día de la Candelaria on February 2nd. My friend Lesley’s daughter actually found the figurine in her slice of bread but since Lesley hosted Dia de Los Reyes I volunteered to host Dia de La Candelaria.

Traditionally you will find tamales, atole, and champurrado on this day but we decided to change up the menu this year.

We will share some of our recipes on later posts but for now we wanted to recap the spread of amazing food amongst amigos.

My sister also hosted in her new home in Germany and her menu is also included.

Despite the crazy blizzard in Colorado, most of our friends made it over. Sit back and enjoy our feasts from Colorado and Alemania (Germany).
