Dulce de Leche Mousse with Crunchy Sponge #SweeterPascua #ad #CollectiveBias

In Costa Rica we celebrate Pascua with our family and friends and sometimes we just take our time to relax and enjoy the weather. Normally during this time of the year is very hot over there, so you will see a lot of families enjoying the beach during that time.

For those that don’t go to the beach, we stay at home enjoying all the celebrations and having some rest and family time. We also gather to enjoy a lot of food and delicious desserts. Yum! as I start thinking about dessert it came to my mind a bizcocho de dulce de leche that my grandmother used to make, and this is a secret please don’t tell anybody but, this was a “cake” with wherever we had on the pantry, one thing that my grandma was good at was to created delicious dessert using her imagination.
