Delicioso: Desserts for Cinco de Mayo
Tres Leches Cakes
This decadent cake is soaked in three different types of milk.
Easy Churros with Mexican Chocolate Sauce
They may be baked instead of fried and call for store-bought puff pastry instead of homemade batter, but take it from us, these churros are just as delicioso. Serve with our ancho chili- and cinnamon-laced chocolate sauce.
Spicy Chocolate Cookies
A roll in turbinado sugar before baking adds extra crunch to these melt-in-your-mouth cookies inspired by the flavors of Mexican hot chocolate. They get their addictive kick from cayenne pepper and cinnamon.
Honey Flan with Citrus and Kiwifruit
Creamy Horchata Pops
The temperature finally starts to rise around Cinco de Mayo, which means it's time for a frozen dessert! Transform the cinnamon-flavored rice milk beverage known as horchata into popsicles for a refreshing sweet ending.
These festive cupcakes have all the flavors -- and the tequila and triple sec -- found in a margarita, with the addition of a rich cream cheese frosting.
DIY lard makes all the difference in these anise-flavored Mexican sugar cookies.
Who says it's too early for pumpkin??! That's what the canned variety is for. Not only does it work beautifully in this pumpkin pie-Mexican custard hybrid, but it also gives the dessert a beautiful burnt orange hue.
Mexican Wedding Cakes
These crumbly nut cookies are rolled twice in confectioners' sugar to get their characteristic white coating.
Mexican Ice Cream Sundaes with Cinnamon-Chocolate Sauce
Cinnamon and chocolate are a classic flavor combo in Mexican cuisine. Here they're combined in a sauce that's drizzled over dulce de leche ice cream.
Mexican Chocolate Biscotti
Yes, we know biscotti are Italian, but the combination of cocoa powder, bittersweet chocolate, cayenne, and cinnamon are making a strong case for fusion.
Snack on something sweet; these broiled "chips" are coated in cinnamon sugar and are similar to sopaipillas.
It takes only three ingredients to make this tropical ice cream and coconut treat.
Mango Wedges with Chili
Looking for something a little savory to serve after dinner? Ancho chili powder and salt bring out the bright flavors in fresh mango.
If your favorite part of a margarita is the salted rim, you'll love the pretzel crust on this lime and tequila cheesecake.
