#sweeterpascua Capirotada
Every family has their own traditional recipes that can never be left out of family reunions and holidays events. Like many Hispanic families living in the U.S., mi familia celebrates Holy Week during the 40 days of Lent which ends with Pascua Easter Sunday. Growing up we spent our Easter holiday down on the border, gathering with family we didn’t see too often. Piñatas, egg hunts on the beach or by the river was our tradition every year, and although we don’t go down as often now, some traditions stay the same… like having capirotada every single year.

Now you know we all have that one tia that brings the most amazing homemade desserts over to family reunions, one that serving “poquito” is just not enough, right?! My tia Norma is the one who makes the most delicious capirotada I have ever tasted. Every year during Holy Week, capirotada a mexican bread pudding, is a family staple in many mexican dinner tables. The unusual combination of ingredients like bread, cheese, piloncillo, raisins makes for a delicious dessert and one everyone in the family will be sure to ask you for the recipe.

Today I would love to share with you the traditional capirotada recipe I have learned to make from my tia, with a sweeter Spanglish twist in which instead of grajeas (sprinkles), I will be using egg shaped M&M’s® candy I grew up loving. I decided to use M&M’s® in my capirotada because it’s a sweet treat that combines two things I love about each culture on an amazing day like Easter.

#SweeterPascua
I know some of the traditional ingredients in a capirotada recipe may be hard to find depending on where you live, but I have found that Walmart is a one-stop shop where you will find everything you need for this recipe. Even exclusive items like the M&M’s® in Easter Sundae flavor available only for limited time, so hurry I’m sure they won’t last long with all the egg hunts and Easter baskets to be made. And if you’re a couponista, I’ve got you covered with a couple of savings to stretch that dollar and make this Easter a #SweeterPascua.
