Crazy Good Chocolate Alfajores

February 17, 2014

Chocolate alfajores are a melt-in-your mouth cookie.  This Argentinean staple combines a buttery shortbread cookie with sweet and sticky dulce de leche, a Latin American caramel sauce made from sweetened condensed milk.  This recipe stays slightly from the traditional one.  Instead of a vanilla butter cookie, these are chocolate.  To make these alfajores extra special, dip them in dark chocolate.
