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!

Do you make dulce de leche or buy it? If I can buy it, where can I find it?

I just want to thank you for having this blog and website! Though I was born in the U.S, my family is from Cali, Colombia and I never managed to pick up on their amazing cooking skills. I have learned to cook so many easy and delicious dishes just by referencing your site, and your recipes are a staple in our home.
I tried to make brownis for the first time using this recipe. I mixed all the ingredients as as described and after I took the brownies out of the oven I let them rest for 5 minutes and then placed them in the fridge over night. But this morning the brownies were really hard (like a rock). But the flavor of was really good.
I want to try to make them again? but wanted to ask you.
Is the recipe missing some sort of Baking powder or soda? Is there something I did wrong? what do u mean with prepared baking pan?
Elva- Prepared pan=greased
Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
Queria usar esta receta para hacer unos brownies. Pero te queria preguntar si es posible usar milo en vez de chocolate normal? Ya he hecho unos brownies anteriormente en los que se hornea la mitad de la masa de brownie unos minutos se agrega el arequipe y después encima la otra mitad de la masa pero no se si esto resulte con el milo. Asumo que si?
Si tienes alguna consejo, te lo agradecería!!
