I have two reasons to love tejas and chocotejas: 1. I have a sweet tooth; 2. They are irresistible. These bite-sized Peruvian sweets can be enjoyed at any time of the day, as a treat or dessert if you want something sweet to finish your meal on a high note. Needless to say, they are also the PERFECT bite when I need a chocolatey pick me up during a busy day.
Helena’s Chocotejas are famous in Peru, and increasingly so around the world, and they make very charming (and tasty) gourmet Christmas or New Years present for all foodies out there, Peruvian or not. The classic chocoteja is made with dulce de leche, pecans and chocolate, but Helena has many other interesting flavors such as Pisco infused raisins, guava, orange, prunes, Brazil nuts, walnuts, and more.
