Although Americans think of Cinco de Mayo as a Mexican holiday, it's a much bigger event in the states than south of the border. In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo (yes, the 5th of May) honors the day in 1862 when Mexican forces in Puebla, Mexico defeated the much larger French army. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has become a day to celebrate all things Mexican – from the heritage, to the culture to the food. And of course, it wouldn't be a party without some dulce, meaning sweets! Introduce your kids to some authentic Mexican desserts with one – or all – of these recipes.
