Sweetheart Sandwiches

Prep: 15 min | Cook: 5 min | Servings: 8


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (7.6 fluid ounce) can Nestlé Media Crema
  • 1/3 cup Nestlé La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk (squeezable bottle)
  • 16 slices whole wheat bread
  • 8 large strawberries, chopped
  • 4 large strawberries, cut in half


  1. Combine water and cornstarch in small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat media crema and sweetened condensed milk in small saucepan over medium heat until heated through and well combined. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until well thickened.
  3. Remove from heat. Cover; cool to room temperature.
  4. Cut bread into large heart shapes almost the size of the bread using a cookie cutter or knife. Cover to keep from drying out.
