What are sweet molletes?

Sweet molletes (molletes dulces) consist of buttered and toasted sliced bolillo rolls topped with cinnamon-sugar and drizzled with sweetened condensed milk.

They are basically the Mexican version of cinnamon toast.

Where can I find bolillo bread?

I always get my bolillo at my local Kroger. If you can’t find them at Kroger I suggest you go to a nearby Mexican grocery or a “panaderia” which is a bakery. You should be able to find them there.
