I'm never ready for Cinco de Mayo! As usual, here is the list of last Cinco de Mayo minute treats. I've added a few things friends have made in the past few days as well.
Lucinda Hutson's Jalapeno Carrot Cake -- A friend is making this and will report back soon. It seems to be a very dense cake.
Chocolate Cinnamon Bundt Cake -- Food Librarian recommends this, as does Janice who posted it on the "Go-To" cakes list.
The Tuesdays with Dorie bloggers made Burnt Sugar Ice Cream
Mexican Chocolate Chunk Cookies -- These were incredible when made with actual Mexican chocolate ( the kind that doubles as drink mix).
Golden Cinnamon Pumpkin Bars -- These might be passable as Cinco de Mayo treats, right? Pumpkin?
Mayan Chocolate Cookies -- I prefer the Tex-Mex cookies, but these were excellent as well.
Tex-Mex Chocolate Cookies -- Excellent chocolate cookies with a hint of chipotle. Make sure you use natural cocoa powder or the cookies won’t rise properly.
Priscilla’s Fiesta Fudge Cookies -- A quick and easy prize winner for kids and adults.
Oaxaca Fudge Bars with Cashew Topping -- These bars made it to Food TV Ultimate Recipe Showdown.
Mexican Chocolate Crunch Brownies -- Bake-off Recipe by Val.
Coconut Cut-Outs -- Good cut-out dough from Martha Stewart.
Mexican Chocolate Biscotti -- Cinnamon chips in chocolate biscotti.
Chocolate Dulces -- Super simple junior league treat
Chocolate Snickerdoodles -- Simple and good.
Flan Cake -- Kind of a strange cake, but fun and impressive if it works.
Frontera’s Mexican Chocolate Streusel Cake -- Very moist cake. The hardest part is finding the Mexican chocolate.
Tres Leches Cake -- Mmmmmmmmm. Three Milks.
