Fudgey and incredibly rich Dulce de Leche Brownies with easy 3-ingredient homemade dulce de leche sauce swirled throughout and drizzled on top!
Is everyone okay with me sharing 957 pictures of the all-time best brownies on the entire face of the planet and not saying a word?
Because really. No words can explain what’s happening here today.
Buuuuuut, I’m sure I can come up with a few if I try really really hard. You know how difficult it is for me to blabber on and on about food……
Thick. Chewy. Perfectly sweet and a little bit salty. Fudgey. Swirled with DULCE DE LECHE SAUCE which quite literally takes 6 minutes of your time and required just 3 ingredients. Uno, dos, tres. Thuh-ree. Which makes me wonder 1) why dulce de leche has never happened before in my kitchen and 2) how can I add dulce de leche to everything I eat????
After my first bite of this, I altogether ditched the drizzle method and went straight to dunking. Literally, I just poured the dulce de leche sauce in a bowl and started dipping my brownie bites right in that rich golden goodness.
But the drizzle. It did happen. Obviously…
The drip! I can never resist a good gooey drip.
True story: Yesterday my husband and I went to the car show, which we do every year because for my own health, annually I need to sit inside of my dream car #1 – Jeep Wrangler and dream car #2 – Audi TT. Unfortunately (there may have been a mini temper tantrum involved. maybe) the TT did not show. (I was stood up!) But, we did run in to a gelato cart a this shindig, which, after drying my weepy 6-year old tears, was enough to make me forget allllll about that dream car disappointment.
And there in the case, nudged right between the oreo cookie and caramel pecan was none other than dolce de leche gelato.
Fate, you’re too kind to me.
Another true story? I fully-intended to share these brownies with my loved ones. The ones who do not live in my house. It’s the thought that counts right? Twenty four hours after these babies came of the oven, I reported to said loved ones that another batch will be made prontissimo because, uhmyeahhhhh I ate them all.
You saw the drip. You get it.
Dulce de Leche Brownies
- 8 tablespoons butter - melted
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup flour
Dulce de Leche Sauce
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- First, prepare the dulce de leche sauce. Add brown sugar and whipping cream to a small-medium sauce pan and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring throughout. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add chocolate chips and stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and vanilla.
- In a large bowl, whisk sugar, salt, and flour. Pour chocolate mixture into the flour bowl and add the eggs. Mix well. Spread batter evenly in prepared baking pan.
- Drizzle about 1/3 of the dulce de leche sauce over the brownie batter. Use a knife to swirl the sauce into the batter (just make figure-8 patterns until it's swirled in a bit). Bake for 30-35 minutes until brownies are set. Allow to cool before cutting into squares and serving drizzled with remaining dulce de leche sauce. (If sauce has cooled too much, just reheat it in the microwave for about 20 seconds)
