The last week of the year is upon us, and with it comes our desire to be over and done with it. Moreover, we look forward to welcoming 2024 in our pajamas and eating our favorite Latino holiday treats guilt-free.

After all the mercuries retrogrades, rampant inflation, and the world falling apart, eating a churro con chocolate or an empanada isn’t going to change much, is it?

Now, seriously speaking, who invented the guilt of eating at Christmas? That person surely didn’t have to survive a Latino family meal, nor the existential doubt of whether I should launch my own business next year or continue living paycheck-to-paycheck.

And while sugar and calories aren’t going to give me the winning lottery numbers, they will surely give me the serotonin boost I so desperately need to start 2024. 

So grab a dessert fork and get ready to dig in because you f***ing deserve it!

Tres Leches Cake is definitely a staple

Let’s kick this indulgence party off with a classic that needs no introduction — Tres Leches Cake. This moist sponge cake soaked in three different milks is like a dessert symphony in your mouth. It’s the kind of treat that’ll make you blissfully forget about counting calories. 

Transform the classic Tres Leches into a guilt-free pleasure by using coconut or almond milk and opting for a sugar substitute.
