5 Argentinian desserts everyone should try

Desserts are passion and perdition in Argentina. We have a great variety and a main star: dulce de leche. Shall we try them?


Food is an important part of our traditions. Luckily. The best things happen around the table and, whenever it's together, there's food. Among all that,  desserts are our doom . And we are fortunate to have a great ally: the   dulce de leche  , which sneaks into almost all our recipes.

For the sweet tooth, here are  5 Argentine desserts  that everyone should try at least once in a lifetime.

1. Alfajores

First of all, the most consumed treat by Argentines.   Alfajores  are part of our day to day.  Not only do they work as a dessert: they can also be a snack (not very healthy, but snack at last). There are different types, sizes and shapes. Each province has its own. They can be filled with dulce de leche, but also with jam or chocolate mousse. They can be bathed in chocolate or covered with impalpable sugar or meringue. What does he have in common? They're all great.

2. Pancakes with dulce de leche

 Egg, flour, milk , and a little dexterity to cook them: only that is necessary to enjoy this delight. In Argentina they eat well finite and accompanied by  dulce de leche (as could not be otherwise). Of course there are other variants, but this is what we all want.

3. Chocotorta

Everybody's favorite, by far.  Chocotorta  is simple, delicious, and best of all, anyone can do it. It emerged as a promotional strategy and stayed on our birthdays and in our hearts forever.  Chocolate cookies, dulce de leche and cream cheese: pure magic. 

4. Cheese and sweet

Also known as  vigilante dessert , it is another Argentine classic. It is simply a thick cut of cheese (type Pategrás) on which a thick cut of quince candy is placed. There is also the version with sweet potato.  Simple and traditional. 

5. Mixed flan

Another of our star desserts and perhaps one of the most popular desserts.  Homemade flan with cream and dulce de leche.  A bomb. Of flavors, sensations (and calories, of course). Impossible not to travel to childhood in every bite.
