This delicious arroz con leche recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My grandmother always added a sweet swirl of cajeta to her arroz con leche and topped it with pieces of peanut brittle. As a child I named it "Special Surprise", and use to ask for it frequently. She knew exactly what I was asking for and would dash to the kitchen to make my Special Surprise. I now make this Cajeta Arroz con Leche for my son, and love to see his eyes light up as I serve him. I imagine that's how my grandmother used to feel when she saw my eyes widen with the same happy glow.
