Three varieties of Dominostein

A Dominostein (plural Dominosteine) is a sweet primarily sold during Christmas season in Germany and Austria.

Dominosteine consist of several layers, covered with a thin icing of (typically) dark chocolate. The base consists of Lebkuchen. Further layers contain jelly (e.g. from sour cherries or apricots) and either marzipan or persipan.[1]

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 lower price than the other products of Wendler's praline product line. During the scarcity of food during World War II the Dominostein gained popularity as a replacement praline.[2][3]
