When the American Melville Sewell Bagley arrived in Argentina and in 1864 founded the company that bears his name, he never imagined that more than 150 years later he would produce the most consumed cookies by Argentines.
It is a hard pure chocolate cookie with an exquisite texture and flavor. Ideal to accompany coffee, tea or to make the most delicious cake in South America: the Chocotorta (Chocolate + Cake). If you haven't tried it yet, don't wait any longer. It is an incomparable pleasure.
Created in 1982 by the director of an advertising company, Marité Mabragaña, La Chocotorta arose from the need to unite two of her clients' products: Mendicream Cream Cheese and Bagley's Chocolina.
The recipe is simple and delicious: the cookies are soaked with port wine, dulce de leche is mixed with cream cheese, the cookies are spread forming a layer and then another layer, and another layer, and another layer.
