Happy Holidays!

In HIS DESIRE, Kate Ross held a monthly themed dinner party with her friends, and the one in the book was held right before Kate and Jesse truly became Kate and Jesse. At each dinner, she attempted a new recipe with her friends. During that Mexican-themed dinner, she made Sopaipillas with Chocolate Sauce. Here is Kate’s recipe.


For the sauce:

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Sopaipillas:

Vegetable oil, for frying

4 8-to-10 inch flour tortillas, cut into wedges

Granulated sugar, for coating


Make the sauce:

Bring 1/4 cup water, the brown sugar, and salt to a boil in a small saucepan, until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.

Make the Sopaipillas:

Heat 1/2 inch vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet until 350 degrees F. Working in batches, fry the tortillas, turning once, until bubbly and golden on both sides. 1 to 2 minutes per batch. Transfer to towel-lined plate and sprinkle both sides generously with sugar.

Drizzle with chocolate sauce and serve.
