- 1 can 12 oz CARNATION Evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 can 7.6 oz NESTLÉ Media Crema, or 1 cup whipping cream
- 27 graham crackers or other square crackers of your choice
- For the frosting
- 1 15oz can of coconut milk, chilled for 24 hours
- 4 tablespoons sugar or to your taste
- To prepare the filling, boil over medium heat the condensed milk, vanilla extract, reserving 3 tablespoons of evaporated milk to dissolve the cornstarch.
- In another bowl dissolve the cornstarch in the three tablespoons of evaporated milk and then add it to the boiling mixture. Stir constantly to mix well. About 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat, quickly add the cream and stir again.
- In an 8 x 8 inches ovenproof pan put a layer of crackers and a layer of cream alternately. Repeat the process ending with a layer of cream. Refrigerate for 5 hours or until desired consistency.
- For the frosting, remove the lid of the can of coconut milk, Using a spoon carefully remove the layer of thick coconut cream that has spread to the top of the can, and transfer to a bowl. (Do not use the coconut water that has settled to the bottom of the can.)
- Whisk the coconut cream on medium speed for about 4 minutes, or until the cream forms soft peaks. Add the sugar and beat until incorporated.Spread on top of the dessert and garnish with grated coconut and chocolate eggs.
It's amazing how fast this year is moving! I can't believe Easter is only a few days away. Every celebration in my family revolves around lots of great food and delicious drinks. So when I was invited to participate in a campaign with El Mejor Nido, I found the perfect excuse to make an easy and simple recipe, yet very special, Crackers and Sweet Condensed Milk Dessert. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?
This is one of the desserts I miss most from my childhood, and not just for the taste. I would often have Crackers and Sweet Condensed Milk Dessert while at my grandmother's house, which we would prepare together and I loved cooking with Mamita! Those times spent cooking together made for some wonderful memories.
I am always delighted when testing the layers of crackers blended into a delicious, creamy filling of sweet condensed milk with a delicate vanilla flavor and a coconut frosting. As an adult I occasionally let my culinary nostalgia create different versions of this easy-to-make dessert from my childhood. This time I thought it would be a good idea to decorate the frosting with grated coconut and chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter.
This is ideal for any party or while having a cup of tea with friends. You can leave it in the fridge for up to three days, as long as you keep it well covered. All you have to do is decorate it last minute and serve.
I invite you to visit ElMejorNido.com to find more recipes and information about the products. Connect with them through Facebook and Twitter.

I'm going to make your Tres Leches de Café using Nestle Sweet Condensed Milk. I've made your Chocolate Tres Leches cake before and it was divine. As a coffee lover, I can only imagine de café will be even better!
Hola Erica from Spain.
Easter a few days away? I am typing this (it is Good Friday) and the band accompanying El Señor to his meeting with La Virgen is playing outside the Parish Church as the paso passes up the main street.
I have lots of crackers that need to be used up soon. This recipes comes just in time. Thanks for sharing, Erica.

This recipe was handed down from my grandma Meta. It was that special treat we always looked forward to and could never get enough of. Enjoy.
1 12oz bag of Nestlé Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
2 cans Nestlé Sweetened Condensed Milk, warmed unopened in hot water
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
Preheat oven to 325. Grease an 8x8, 9x9, or 9x13 pan. Any size will do remembering the smaller the pan the longer it will need to bake.
In a large bowl, combine crumbs and chocolate morsels until incorporated. One at a time, open a can of condensed milk and pour into bowl with crumbs-chocolate combination, being careful to scrape inside and lid of can with rubber spatula for every last drop.
Fold in condensed milk partially to get things started. It will become clear why, as the mixture gets sticky and thick rather quickly.
Repeat process with second can. Stir until well incorporated and no dry crumbs can be seen. Pour into greased baking pan. Smooth with rubber spatula to level and fill corners. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. Let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack to set, pan should still be warm. Cut into portions. Remove with metal or wood spatula. Enjoy.
I would love to use this for some key lime pie!
