Super easy, super yummy dessert. It you can get cajeta, it's worth if for the added touch it has; otherwise you can use caramel sauce. Cajeta can be found in most Latino markets; it's a rich caramel sauce that's sometimes--depending on manufacturer--flavored with cinnamon, raisins, ground nuts, or other such touches. It's a specialty of the city of Celaya in the state of Guanajuato, though it's commonly found throughout most regions of Mexico.
