Thank you to Nabisco + Latina Bloggers Connect for sponsoring my merienda memories + creating new ones!
My Nana always hooked it up at merienda time. You know that sweet spot between lunch + dinner. The days I got to go to her house after school, I remember bursting in the kitchen, almost breaking down her screen door, to see what she made for me. I would throw my backpack in the corner, hop in my Papa’s chair at the head of the table, legs dangling, waiting to be served. She’d tell me, “wait for dinner” and give me a few Oreo cookies on a plate with a glass of milk. She returned to her spot in front of the stove, working on dinner. Having her back to me, she’d remind me “don’t make a mess”, “wipe off your milk moustache” and that’s the way it was and it was all good. I didn’t realize how fancy cookies on a plate were until I got older and didn’t have that luxury anymore. I wanted to take a new Nabisco spin on traditional favorites for Día del Niño and was so inspired to turn up the yum with this fun and delicious OREO Dulce de Leche Parfait Recipe.
I really love that Nabisco is providing a variety of fun and delicious Latino-inspired recipes that are just right to treat the family for Día del Niño. So easy-to-make and feature my familia’s favorites: Oreo, Chips Ahoy!, Ritz and Honey Maid.
