The area we live in now, is so different than our old neighborhood. All I had to do was go to a corner market, bakery, or anywhere really, to grab almost any Mexican candy I wanted. They were so readily available, I never learned how to make any of it-- just dulce de leche.
Here in the sticks, no one has any, which was why I nearly fell out of my seat when Missy came running to me with a new book she found at the library.
Oh boy! I just searched for My Sweet Mexico on Amazon and another recently published Mexican candy cookbook, Dulce, just popped up!
Anyway, this cookbook has every Mexican candy favorite I ever tried and so many more. My mom and I were just talking about wanting a recipe for pan dulce, but she never learned how to make it growing up because there were so many panaderias in the neighborhood.
So excuse me while I enter a Mexican candy coma! I just saw the recipe for Morelianas!!! Mazapanes de Cacahuate!! Aaahhhh!
