Mexican sweets and candy tend to be either very sweet or very spicy and rarely anything in between. 'Chili sweets' are extremely popular with people of all ages, they contain the right amount of sugar to make them sweet and a touch of chili to give them a twist. Sweets made of goat's milk 'cajeta' (a sort of thick toffee sauce) or 'Dulce de Leche' are also quite popular in the North part of Mexico. So whether you like your sweets, really sweet, or with a little spicy edge, here are a few we selected that we think cover the lot.
My Mexican Shop is run by husband and wife team, Lily & Alan. He is Irish and she is Mexican and they met in Japan over 15 years ago. Lily has been living and cooking in Ireland for over 10 years now.
They both share a passion for good food, travel and cooking; When not busy running their business and carrying out other work endeavours, they can be found in their Dublin kitchen, cooking (mainly Lily) and eating (mainly Alan) all sorts of yummy food.
