Inspired from the traditional recipes, this layered Abuelita Chocolate Carlota gets wonderful flavors from ladyfinger cookies soaked in a rich and sweet brandy sauce. Slice before serving and decorate with strawberry jam, apricot jam and whipped cream.

Ingredients

Step 1

Place 3/4 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, evaporated milk and Abuelita in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until Abuelita is melted; reduce heat to low. Combine cornstarch and 1/2 cup water in small bowl; add to Abuelita mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Combine gelatin and 2 tablespoons hot water; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir into chocolate mixture; remove from heat.

Step 2

Heat 2/3 cup water and 2/3 cup sugar in medium saucepan until mixture reaches a boil. Boil for 5 minutes; add brandy.

Step 3

Place 10 cookies on bottom of a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan; pour brandy mixture over top of cookies and let soak into cookies. Spread slightly less than half of chocolate mixture over cookies; top with 7 cookies. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Spread remaining chocolate mixture over cookies; top with 5 cookies. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

Step 4

Decorate with strawberry jam, apricot jam and whipped cream before serving. Slice to serve.
