Brandy was privileged to try two flavors of Dulce Caramel Co.'s signature Alfajors, the "Tradicional" and the Dark Chocolate. An Alfajor, according to Dulce Caramel Co.'s website, is a "delicate, melt in your mouth confection, made of two thin buttery sable cookies with a smooth layer of dulce de leche or fruit spread interior." "Sounds like the perfect kind of tea time snack to me!" Brandy exclaimed when she first read this.
The Dark Chocolate had a slight different texture, being more moist and soft. The chocolate shell that covered the confection was a perfect thickness that enhanced both the caramel filling and the slightly spiced cookies. Brandy detected a hint of orange flavor to this confection that she very much enjoyed.
Brandy would have been quite happy to down several more of these tasty tidbits with her tea, as both the Tradicional and Dark Chocolate Alfajors lent themselves easily to accompanying a hot sipping beverage. "I can imagine curling up in front of a fire with a box of these beauties, a strong Chamomile, and good book and not moving again until the box was empty," Brandy swooned, "Which reminds me, I should call the chimney sweep. My floo's been blocked up since last Christmas."
