Dominostein, fine bitter chocolate coating
|Place of origin||Germany|
|Main ingredient(s)||Lebkuchen, sour cherry or apricot jelly, marzipan or persipan, milk or dark chocolate|
A Dominostein (plural Dominosteine) is a sweet primarily sold during Christmas season in Germany and Austria.
The Dominostein was invented in 1936 by Herbert Wendler (1912–1998) in Dresden. The layered praline was targeted for a broader audience because of a cheaper price than the other products of Wendler's praline manufactury. During the scarcity of food during World War II the Dominostein gained popularity as a replacement praline.
