“This is a Croatian recipe that I got from my friend. It has been a favorite since!” - by Erin
Original recipe yields 16 pieces
- Place the water, sugar, and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until the sugar and butter dissolve, about 10 minutes. Pour into a mixing bowl and cool to room temperature.
- Stir the crushed animal crackers into the sugar mixture until evenly moistened; spread half the mixture into an 8x8-inch baking dish. Stir the cocoa powder into the remaining animal cracker mixture until smooth; spread into the baking dish over the lighter-colored layer. Spread the melted chocolate evenly over the bajadera.
- Refrigerate overnight; cut into 16 pieces to serve.

See moreast the goopy stage in the fridge, so when I tried to cut them into squares, I ended up w/ some squishy chunks. (Of course, my fingers didn't mind scooping up all those pieces and jamming them into my mouth.) I like that these were easy to make, with ingredients almost always on hand, and didn't require baking, but I'm not sure where I went wrong w/ the layers bleeding together. (Did I crush the crackers too finely? Not enough crackers? /muse.) Their texture and flavor is like fudge, and it sneaks up on you, tempting you w/ a "betcha-can't-eat-just-one.""
