We are setting up our Dia de Muertos altar tomorrow. This weekend, we are having a halloween party. Like every year, our home decor will be a mixture of both Halloween and Dia de los Muertos holidays. Both are loved equally in our home and we celebrate them and immerse ourselves in the fun of Halloween and the culture of Dia de Los Muertos. Pumpkins and styrofoam gravestones in our front yard and marigolds, candles and sugar skulls in a corner of our living room. We embrace it all.
As part of the festivities, lots of sweets are involved. Beginning with Halloween candy and ending with pan de muerto. Party food is never lacking and that includes this fun dip I make with mini buñuelos to scoop it up with. Kids and adults love it. I am particularly fond of it because it’s so easy to make and it’s gone in a matter of minutes. So I make sure I whip up plenty. If you’re intimidated with making buñuelos, don’t be. All you need is flour tortillas, frying oil and cinnamon sugar. That’s all! So roll up your sleeves, get ready to celebrate the fall holidays with friends and make this quick dessert dip for your next party. Oh, and don’t forget the delicious dulce de leche spider web design as the finishing spooky touch.
