Melissa's Cuisine: Dulce de Leche Brownies

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Mike and I just spent the weekend up north at a lake cottage with some of our friends. We had a fabulous time enjoying a little bit of sun, pontoon rides, campfires, fun games, and delicious foods.  According to Mike and the friends we were with this weekend, the perfect accompaniment to a brownie is a tall glass of cold milk.  I'd have to disagree, but that's simply because I dislike milk.  I think I probably have my usual glass of water with a brownie...boring, I know!  What about you, what do you like to drink with your brownies? 
When I received my Secret Recipe Club assignment this month, I spent a few hours reading through Gloria's blog, Canela Kitchen.  It took quite a while to get through everything because she has been blogging since 2007.  I made a long list of recipes that I wanted to make, most of them were blueberry recipes because earlier this month, I had an abundance of berries.  Unfortunately, time got away from me and I forgot about the blueberries and those recipes.  I realized late last week that I hadn't made my recipe yet and it was nearly time to post!  I quickly went back through my list and came upon this recipe for Dulce de Leche brownies.  I love brownies and I love Dulce de Leche, so I knew this was a perfect recipe.  Plus, I wanted to make something to bring up north with us.

These brownies certainly did not disappoint.  They were rich and gooey.  I enjoyed the layer of Dulce de Leche in the brownie.  We enjoyed eating these brownies with lunch this weekend. I'm glad I ended up making this recipe...thank you Gloria!  I know I'll be visiting your blog often and I will be making some of your delicious blueberry recipes too.

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Makes 1 9x13" pan, about 16 servings

You will need:
8 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 cup Dulce de Leche

1.  Melt the butter in a saucepan (or in the microwave). 

2.  Add chopped chocolate to the butter and stir until the chocolate is completely melted.

3.  Whisk in cocoa powder until smooth.

4.  Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated.

5.  Stir in sugar, vanilla, and flour.

6.  Scrape half the brownie batter into a greased 9x13" pan. 

7.  Drop 1/2 of the Dulce de Leche over the top of the batter by the spoonful.  Use a knife to swirl it through the brownie batter.

8.  Spread remaining brownie batter over the swirled mixture.

9.  Top with spoonfuls of the remaining Dulce de Leche.

10.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean.

Cool completely before cutting and serving.

  1. Yum - they look wonderful! I agree with you - no milk with brownies for me.
    I've visited Gloria's blog frequently - she has some wonderful recipes!

  2. Looks like a great brownie recipe, I generally like to drink a nice cup of tea with my desserts, as I too am not a milk drinker.

  3. Love dulce de leche...these look delicious. Great SRC choice.

  4. You know, I've never made anything with Dulce de Leche! I've had it and loved it but have never baked with it. These sounds awesome!

  5. No way! Dulce de leche in a brownie! MUST MAKE NOW!

  6. Anything dulce de leche is a winner in my books! I feel your pain in realizing near the due date that SRC post needs to go live. It happens to the best of us ;). Great (last minute) SRC pick and hope you can make some more delicious blueberry recipes, soon!

  7. These brownies look irresistible!!! Who can resist anything caramelly combined with chocolate???? Not me! Great SRC selection...Gloria has so many fabulous desserts :)

  8. Looks FANTASTIC! Everything happens for a reason and, while the blueberry recipes might have been good - clearly, the brownies win. I mean, caramel, cocoa - now that's the way to start a Monday.

  9.! This looks incredible! I wish I had a giant batch of them right now...

  10. Look delicious Im happy you like my blog:)

  11. I love Gloria and visit her blog as often as I can. SHe has a lot of great recipes, who could resist a brownie recipe with caramel even better.

    Believe it or not but I've never had dulce-de-leche brownies :)

  19. I love brownies. And your look sooo delicious! I am with you, I dislike milk. A big glass of water with a yummy brownie is a much better choice. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
