In Colombia, sweet arepas are usually prepared with sugar and aniseed, and later fried in oil. Today I have a different, sweet arepa recipe made with cocoa powder. They’re delicious served as an appetizer or for dessert. I prepared small ones because I like to portion out my sweets, but you can make these arepas as big or small as you’d like!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup arepa flour mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • Oil cooking spray or butter, to cook arepas
  • Powdered sugar or condensed milk, to taste, for garnish

Directions

  • 1
    In a container, mix the flour, cinnamon, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and vanilla extract.
  • 2
    Add the melted butter, almond milk and water, kneading until the dough is soft and easy to work with.
  • 3
    Form arepas of desired size. Heat a non-stick frying pan with oil cooking spray or butter.
  • 4
    Set the arepas in the pan and cook until golden on both sides. Serve with the powdered sugar or condensed milk.
