Hope you had a wonderful Easter. My children love dulce de leche so I shall definitely make this recipe for them.
These were so easy (except for spreading around the arequipe - it got a little messy)! Turned out delicious. Thank you. A sweet treat.

Yum... These look incredible!
Thank you all for visiting my site 🙂
I made these for Easter and my kids loved them. They are delicious and easy to make.
I made your arequipe recipe, too.
I am a medical student so I do not have much time to cook, bake, and furthermore eat at all times. I just made these and they are so yummi!! and perfect to carry in my school bag.
you should consider registering this recipe and seek a brand to manufacture these as one of their product. these are really good!! and relatively healthy.
Erica, these look amazing! Quick question - what size baking pan do you use? 9X13? 8X8? Thanks!
