April 19 – Q – Quilla y Quaker
(for Turron de Quaker)
This is easily one of our favourite treats, yet it is ridiculously simple in ingredients: cocoa powder (the brand name El Quilla), oats (Quaker), heaps of butter, milk, sugar, and criollitas crackers (similar to soda crackers). This recipe is written about best (and in English) at this blog site: FROM ARGENTINA WITH LOVE. Basically, you heat up the chocolate and oat mixture on the stove top, then you layer crackers and melted chocolate oat concoction as if you were laying bricks – then freeze!
Around here it never lasts very long because it is like crack, and you just can’t stop at one, and given the copious amounts of butter in it, we know better than to make it too often!
