5 REASONS TO LOVE CC’S SWEETS

by esmeaceves

ccswets1-960x1276.jpg

A place you to get one of the best cookies, macaroons, brownies and cupcakes in McAllen.

Located in the heart of McAllen, a cute place to get pastries made with love is one of favorite places to visit.

After the first bite in my banana nut muffin I was amazed. This was not your typical commercial muffin filled with artificial banana flavor syrup. They were real banana bites! After my first visit, six years ago, I keep coming back at least once a month, ok maybe is once a week, the point is after all these years, CC’S SWEETS AND TREATS is one of my favorite local places to get my pastries and cupcakes in mcallen.

These are the reasons why we always will come back to our cupcake heaven:

1. THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Not too sweet and not too to bland, their cookies have the  perfect combination between chocolate chips and butter. Remember to try their “kitchen sink” cookies, they have potato chips, chocolate chips, nuts, and other yummy toppings which I cannot remember right now. Oh! the perfection…

2. THEIR UNIQUE MACAROONS AND THEIR YUMMY FLAVORS

My favorite are Nutella and Pistachio Macaroons. They are a must! Your CC’s sweet experience is incomplete if you are missing the taste of their macaroons.

4. THEIR SPECIAL EVENTS

From their crazy shakes events to the unicorn day or mermaid day. They always have me on my toes wondering what their latest yummy creation is going to be.

BREAKFAST

Best Chilaquiles Worth Waking up For

Do you think of Chilaquiles as a Mexican Lasagna?

When green or red salsa is poured over crisp tortilla triangles, you know a delicious flavor is coming up. This extraordinary breakfast dish is one of my all time favorites. It is perfect to fulfill a craving for a big, spicy and yummy breakfast.

If you live around McAllen area, you must be wondering: “where do i go to get some awesome chilaquiles?”.

Do not worry, my friend. I just tasted several chilaquiles around, and have a few suggestion for you:

GREENS AND LEMONS

Their green and red sauce have the perfect combination of spicy and sour taste. Also, their mozzarella cheese is just delicious! Ask for your green chilaquiles with chicken, they will be served with black beans and delicious nopalitos.

Special Tip:  Add extra chicken and you wont be hungry until dinner.

FERNANDOS RESTAURANT

Their Chilaquiles sauce is beyond words, you must taste it! Their tortilla remains crisp until you finish your meal.

Special Tip: Add their green house of top of your chilaquiles for extra delicious flavor!

REX CAFE

A legend for McAllen Foodies. This downtown cafe is classy, with a kitchen full of fresh ingredients, their cooking translates into a homemade flavor in every dish you taste. Their chilaquiles are a must!

Special Tip: try them with chorizo
