Again, girlichef and I were on the same wavelength with this month's theme. She made Dulce de Leche Paletas and I made Caramel Pecan Paletas with cajeta (a Mexican caramel sauce). These paletas were inspired by one of my favorite snacks: plain yogurt with a sprinkling of chopped pecans and cajeta drizzled on top. As much as I enjoy my mid-morning snack, I love these Caramel Pecan Paletas even more! The tartness of the yogurt, the sweet creaminess of the cajeta, and the crunchy nutty flavor of the pecans combine together to make the perfect summer dessert.
Caramel Pecan Paletas
- 3 cups plain or Greek yogurt
- 1 cup Mexican cajeta
- 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
In a medium bowl stir together the yogurt, cajeta, and pecans until completely combined. Fill popsicle molds or small plastic cups with the yogurt mixture. Insert wooden popsicle sticks, if desired. Freeze paletas for at least 3 hours or until completely frozen. Enjoy!
