    Similar to some of the brown sugar/milk candies you see at mexican restaurant registers now, but the biggest difference is their texture was kind of light, dry, & crumbly; not shiny & dense or chewy. Also didn't have nuts.

    Anyone knowledgeable about this type of candy and/or remember this restaurant have any idea where to find something closer to what I'm talking about?

    Searched mazapan & recognized what I gather is one brand of it that I have tried, the round de la rosa packages. Definitely not the same, if that's what you're talking about.

    This will be a loooong shot.

    I remember this. It was at all Monterrey Houses though, not just in Dickinson. Pretty sure Casa Ole even did it for a while.

    Probably dulce de leche, or leche quemada. :eek:

    Now we're getting somewhere. I could already tell from the photo & how she kept describing it as creamy that it's different, even before I got to the goat's milk & the following comment (apparently monterey house had two versions, the dry crumbly one under the chips, and a different creamier one at the register):

    ^she's describing it exactly. Unfortunately none of the critics actually counter with their own recipe, & after googling leche quemada I came across a brand that I've already tried. But I know to stick with leche quemada now, maybe one with goats milk apparently.

    Thank you!
