Dulce de Leche Brownies

At seven o’clock last night I had a chocolate craving.  I approach the pantry and see a can of Dulce de Leche and instantly think caramel brownies.  

I have been wanting to try a new brownie so I did a quick Google search and found these babies. Being seven at night and the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because that’s what I had.  

If you have fancy- shmancy chocolate feel free to use it, I am sure it would elevate these already fantastic brownies!  The recipe is from David Lebovitz, so you know it’s going to be out of this world.  

There are a few steps to these but I am telling you they are at the top of my list with fudgy goodness with dollops of caramel. Are you drooling yet?  

I am going to be stocking up on Dulce de Leche, many, many cans I will be needing to make these again and again!  

If you aren’t familiar with Dulce de Leche it is basically caramel, like caramelized sweetened condensed milk (I can eat it straight out of the can).  

It can be found on the isle of your supermarket near the Mexican ingredients.  You can also make your own, but it’s easier to find it at the store.  

Boiling or baking cans of sweetened condensed milk just isn’t my thing, but to each his own.  You must bake these brownies, you must, you are missing out on the greatest brownies if don’t and I wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on something so good!

I’m also loving these Walnut Brownies for a decadent chocolate dessert!
