F&W's incredible desserts for Cinco de Mayo include
silky Mexican chocolate pots de crème and warm,
crispy churros. Plus, easy Mexican desserts like refreshing
melon granita and a super fast banana split made with
dulce de leche.
Mexican chocolate, which is flavored with ingredients like cinnamon, almonds and vanilla, lends a distinct flavor to Stephanie Prida's rich custard. Look for it at Mexican markets and specialty-food stores.
For a grown-up twist on the classic Rice Krispies Treats, Marcia Kiesel ingeniously swaps out marshmallows for the Latin American dessert sauce dulce de leche, then adds even more crunch with toasted, sliced almonds.
