I don’t like staying in the kitchen for hours after cooking the main course making dessert, so I prefer simple desserts for entertaining. These Sweet Condensed Milk Bars or Cocadas de Lechera are the perfect dessert for entertaining.
I wish you all a happy Pascua (Easter) with your families and friends. Hope you enjoy the warm, spring days a head. Have fun with the egg hunts!
