Douce Marcos or Dous Makos from Petit Goave

The popular Haitian Douce Marcos or Dous Makos is originated from the city of Petit Goave. It has been exproted all over Haiti and the Diaspora.

Based on the information available to us, Douce Marcoss was first produced by a Belgian entrepreneur who settled and put up his business in the coastal town of Petit-Goave in Haiti, Fernand Macos back in 1939. It is made from concentrated milk, which is about 80% to 90% of Dous Makos. You start with combining milk, sugar, and optional cinnamon in order to make a concentrated mixture. Then chocolate, vanilla, and food coloring are added.
