Dishes made with dulce de leche have a special place in my heart. Maybe it's because it makes everything taste really good. Today I have a special treat for you.
About a month ago my son asked me to make some brownies. So I decided to add dulce de leche to the brownies and let me tell you, it was a great decision...they were fantastic! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
