rich chocolaty brownies with two layers of creamy gooey dulce del deche, yes i said two layers, makes these brownies a bit more delicious than you average out of the box stuff. if your a caramel lover like i am i really don’t have to say anything else in order to get you to droll over these.
i use a combination of butter for the flavor and vegetable oil to keep these babies super moist. i buy my canned dulce de leche in the mexican aisle in my grocery store, but if you can’t find it in yours, you can simply boil a closed can of sweetened condensed milk for two hours (making sure to lay the can on it’s side, and is always covered in water) and abracadabra you have “semi-homemade”dulce de leche. and just as a side note i think these would be amazing with any kind of nuts added in, but due to my whole family being allergic to something or another, i better just leave them out.
i really hope you give these a try, they are worth their weight in “caramel” colored gold…
