2. Leftovers povitica

Thisrocksalt took on two of the most common Christmas leftovers – turkey and chocolate – to create two delicious treats, one sweet, one savoury, known as ‘povitica’. Or ‘swirly loafs’ as we like to call them. See leftover turkey and stuffing povitica and leftover chocolate povitica at Thisrocksalt.com.
