Chocolate Conchas are a Mexican pastry created by topping sweet bread with a layer of chocolate shaped like a shell. I made these for a local Fisher House as a part of a Mexican-themed dinner. The Fisher House Foundation provides homes for military families to be near their loved ones during hospitalization. They also provide Scholarships for Military Children and the Hero Miles Program.
The original recipe called for baking these at 390 degrees F for 30 minutes. That was much too high and the bottoms of my first batch were completely burnt after 20 minutes. I made another batch and baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and that worked out much better.
