I’m a big fan of chocolate. I especially love dark chocolate, which is why I was thrilled to discover Dark Chocolate Alfajores. Alfajores are a type of sandwich cookie that originated in South America. They typically consist of two shortbread cookies filled with dulce de leche, a caramel-like filling. However, the Dark Chocolate Alfajores that I discovered are coated with a rich, slightly bitter dark chocolate. The cookies are soft and crumble easily in your mouth, while the filling is thick and velvety. The dark chocolate pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the ganache, creating a truly delicious treat. If you’re a fan of dark chocolate, I highly recommend trying Dark Chocolate Alfajores. You won’t be disappointed!
