Calories? No Hablo Español!

As we dive into the fiesta of making Mexican desserts, strap on your seat belts because we're taking you on a ride with all the calories in tow. It's just the mascarpone truth! But fret not, sweet-toothed comrades. Remember, calories on fiesta days are about as real as the chupacabra - entirely mythical and a figment of our imagination. So, let's dab off that sweat drop looming on your brow and turn up the confectionery heat!

Churros: Every Party's Main Squeeze

Does everything else in a Mexican dessert platter feel like it pales against the mighty churro? You bet your sweet buns they do! Churros are the cheerleaders of the dessert platter, spiraling their deliciousness all over, turning the dull into delightful. And fret not, dear friend, churning out churros at home isn't just confined to Michelin-star chefs. You too can join in the fun, just make sure you don't mix up your dough with your Playdoh. It may not end well.

Flan-tastic Additions: The Sweet Caress of Caramel

Nestled somewhere between a custard's dream and ice-cream's reality is our next star - the flan! This wobbly wonder is the cherry (or more accurately caramel) on the Mexican dessert platter. It provides a much-needed break from the crisp and brings with it flirtatious winks of cream, egg, and sugar. Remember though, while flans might seem like the quiet cousin at your dessert party, they could very well steal the show.

Power-Packed Polvorones: AKA Mexican Wedding Cookies

Just when you think your platter is done dazzling, along comes the unexpected hero - the humble polvorone. Also lovingly dubbed "Mexican wedding cookies", these little morsels are akin to the party guest that brings good vibes and leaves you wanting more. Easy to make and delicious to devour (and we mean DE-VOUR), these round little symphonies of sweet and crumbly are going to sweep your guests off their feet and straight into cookie heaven.

Confetti-Worthy Corn: The Surprising Sweets of Maize

We've been talking about cookies, and flans, and churros, oh my! But did you know that corn, yes you read that right, corn, is a staple of the Mexican dessert scene? Don’t look so a-‘maize’-d. The versatile kernels star in dishes like sweet corn tamales and corn pudding that delight and surprise even the most avid dessert aficionados. And if you're throwing a corn-ucopia of a dessert bash, you might as well bring some corny humor to the mix. Okay, we promise, no more corny puns (maybe).

Bunuelos: Not to Be Outdone by Those Fancy Churros

Just when you thought we'd hit the sweet spot with our chalk talk about churros, we happen upon bunuelos, the lovely latticed cousins of our beloved churro friends. Imagine a thin, crispy tortilla metamorphosing into a cinnamon-sugar butterfly, and you've got the basic idea of a bunuelo. They're the Beyonce of the dessert world; they've got the looks, the taste, the whole darn package. All hail, Queen Bunuelo!

Reality Check: Not All Desserts are Created Equal

There's no denying it - some desserts do hog the limelight. Despite our best efforts at presenting an all-rounded, inclusive, and democratic Mexican dessert platter, there's an undeniable hierarchy in the sugary universe. Churros seem to be kings and queens of the fiesta, followed by the sultry, flirtatious flans, and the unassuming, humble yet vibe-transforming polvorones. But in our platter, every dessert has its special place and the spotlight shines brightly on each. So, onward, ye brave dessert warriors! The fiesta awaits!

So kudos to you, intrepid party-thrower, for bringing the fiesta to your abode! Just remember to take it easy on the salsa dancing if you've had too many churros… though we hear that a good shimmy helps with digestion! Whether you're a seasoned dessert connoisseur, a Mexican food fanatic, or strictly a chips-and-dip person, we're sure that this dessert odyssey has stretched your culinary horizons and tickled your funny bones.
