“Titas are an Argentinian dessert that consists of lemon cream sandwiched between vanilla cookies and dipped in chocolate. It is one of my mom’s favorite snacks (mine too!). A while ago, my grandma told me she learned to make them at home. Over phone calls and voice memos, she explained me how to make them. I tried them, and loved them! They taste almost like real Titas! If you make these, let me know in the comments (and I’ll tell my grandma!). Espero que las disfrutes! (hope you enjoy this!)”

    with a spoon, coat the top of the sandwich with chocolate. Personally, I like having only a light layer of chocolate over the top cookie, but if you want, you can coat the whole sanwich with chocolate.

  • Step 10/11

    once all sandwiches are coated with chocolate, freeze them until the chocolate hardens, then store in the fridge until serving. (tip from my grandma: prepare them a day ahead, and chill overnight. they will be softer and the flavors will be enhanced.)
