Dulce de Leche Brownies


I made about 100 pieces of these brownies for my wedding reception. Was I a crazy bride or what?! Even after being surrounded by dulce de leche and chocolate for days, they were still one of my all time favorite desserts. You know what? They still are. Truly decadent, the dulce de leche adds a deep caramel flavor that makes these brownies different than any other you’ll have.

Recipe: Dulce de Leche Brownies

Prep Time: 5 minutes  Cook Time: 40-45 minutes  Serves: 12 brownies

1 1/2 sticks butter
8 ounces semisweet chocolate
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dulce de leche (store bought or homemade – recipe follows)

Dulce de Leche Ingredients (Makes roughly 1 cup)

1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk

Directions For Brownies

At medium heat and in a small sauce pan melt butter, semisweet chocolate, and unsweetened chocolate. Stir entire time so the chocolate doesn’t burn.

Once the mixture has melted transfer to mixing bowl.  Add sugar, instant coffee granules, eggs, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.

Add dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Pour into a 9×9 baking dish that has been oiled or lined with aluminum. If you line with aluminum, spray the aluminum with oil as well.

Scoop large dollops of dulce de leche on top the brownie batter. Spacing the scoops evenly. Take a knife and drag it through the mixture to create swirls.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Let cool and enjoy!
