    Do you have special treats, snacks, pastries or whatever for New Year’s Eve? In the Netherlands almost everyone has “oliebollen” (oil balls).

    Oliebollen are a variety of dumpling made by using an ice cream scoop or two spoons to scoop a certain amount of dough and dropping the dough into a deep fryer filled with hot oil.

    The dough is made from flour, eggs, yeast, some salt, milk, baking powder and usually sultanas, currants, raisins and sometimes zest or succade (candied fruit). A notable variety is the appelbeignet which contains only a slice of apple, but different from oliebollen, the dough should not rise for at least an hour. Oliebollen are usually served with powdered sugar.

    Oh, I forgot about the drinks. Champagne is the traditional drink, ut Imdislike it enough to refuse to drink it.

    Yeahhhhh "oil balls" rock! And let's not forget about "apple flaps" and my personal favorite "rum-raisin balls". Time to hit the "oil balls stand" I guess, cause this post got me hungry. :D

    Chinese takeout is my family's traditional New Year's dinner that I've carried on with as an adult.
    It makes sense because after Christmas I'm too burnt out to cook another big dinner and it's one of the only places that stays open. :P

    I’m trying to think... I can’t remember ever eating anything special on New Years. Just drinking champagne.

    Maybe in America :P
    The only donut place I can think of off the top of my head is Tim Hortons, and they close early on holidays.
