Dulce De Leche Brownies

Brownies are my go-to dessert.

Fudgy chocolatey goodness. I can never pass it up!

When browsing my pantry I noticed a can of Dulce de Leche. Have you tried that stuff?! Heaven. That is what it is. Heaven.

Thats when it dawned on me to make a frosting to top my favorite brownie recipes. And thus this new fabulous dessert was born.

Dulce de Leche Brownies... these brownies are so fudgy and delicious! The Dulce de Leche Frosting is the perfect compliment!

Everyone who I served these brownies to could not stop RAVING about them! The Dulce de Leche-Chocoalte combo is incredible.

These will be gone and devoured almost faster than they were made!

    Hi Nikki,
    I have never seen a product in my grocery store labeled as "Dulce de Leche". Is there a particular brand? I know there is caramel syrup sold as an ice cream topping. Please help. Thanks.

      It is found near the hispanic foods at the grocery store. It comes in a can. I hope that helps :)

      Dulce de leche it's just heated milk and sugar. If you can't get some look a recipe up, it's pretty simple to make (just don't let it burn).

      Hi there.. You can make this at home simply boil a can of condence milk for about 6-7 hrs. The can should be covered in water. Keep pouring water so the can remain dipped in water otherwise the can may burst open.. Dont wory.. I have been making this since my high school days.. Nothing bad happened.. :) happy baking.
