OMG, the one thing Colombians and I definitely have in common is our sweet tooth. Walking along the Malecon (boardwalk) during my trip to Guatape, Colombia all I saw were food stands selling deliciously unique sweets.
There were way too many to chose from, so I had to pick wisely. Usually, aside from the actual food, I love the experience. So when I came upon a huge cauldron being stirred by a lovely Colombian woman, I knew I found my sweet of the night.
Dulce de Coco Colombiano – What Exactly Is It?
Some ways to translate it would be a fudge-like substance with coconut. But I prefer to simply say it is coconut pieces cooked in milk. The main milk used is evaporated milk, regular milk, and I’m pretty sure these people also used condensed milk.

It was so good, and so filling, that I ended up skipping dinner that night.
