Pretty much everyone has tasted tacos, snacked on salsa, and bitten into a burrito, but have you ever tried an authentic Mexican dessert? Mexican desserts are absolutely delicious and indulgent.  They are often fried (yum) and usually contain the flavor of sweet cinnamon!  If you’ve never had a real Mexican dessert before, we have 6 easy recipes for you to choose from!

Here are 6 easy Mexican desserts recipes for you to try:

Fried Ice Cream: The first time I heard of fried ice cream, I thought it was a miracle or something- how could you possibly fry ice cream?  I ordered it at a restaurant and immediately fell in love.  I never realized it was so easy to make at home!

Churros: You’ll find these at any fair ground, carnival, or amusement park.  Chewy, doughy sticks are fried and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar…mmm…

Pan de Muertos (Day of the Dead Bread):
When I was in middle school, we could order pan de muertos once a year.  I always ordered one loaf, picked it up at school, and it’d be eaten by the time I had walked home!

Mexican Cinnamon Chips: If you are in the mood for something sweet and crunchy then this is the best dessert for you. This is really simple to make and tastes so much better than a chocolate chip cookie.

Fried Plantains: Plantains are a type of banana that is a bit firmer and lower in sugar. They are a staple in tropical cooking and grow as far north as Florida and as far south as Brazil. This recipe makes for a delicious dessert with any type of meal.

Flan with Almonds: This custard-like dessert is a classic Mexican sweet with brown sugar, condensed milk and slivered almonds for crunch.
