PLACE 3/4 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, evaporated milk and Abuelita in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until Abuelita is melted; reduce heat to low. Combine cornstarch and 1/2 cup water in small bowl; add to Abuelita mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Combine gelatin and 2 tablespoons hot water; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir into chocolate mixture; remove from heat.



HEAT 2/3 cup water and 2/3 cup sugar in medium saucepan until mixture reaches a boil. Boil for 5 minutes; add brandy.

Spread slightly less than half of chocolate mixture over cookies; top with 7 cookies. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Spread remaining chocolate mixture over cookies; top with 5 cookies. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
