Dulce de Leche Brownies


Adapted from The Sweet Life in Paris (Broadway Books)                                                                                                                                      David Lebovitz

Ingredients: 8 tablespoons salted or unsalted butter, cut into pieces 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped 1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder 3 large eggs 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup  flour optional: 1 cup toasted pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped 1 cup Dulce de Leche

Cooking Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Line a 8-inch square baking dish with a sheet aluminum foil that covers the bottom  up over the sides. If it doesn’t reach all the way up and over all four sides, cross another sheet of foil over it, making a large cross with edges that overhang the sides. Spray the bottom and sides of the foil with cooking spray.

In a saucepan melt butter, add the semi-sweet chocolate, stirring constantly over very low heat until the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth. Add in eggs one at a time, then stir in the sugar, vanilla, then the flour and nuts if using.

Pour half of the batter into baking dish.  Spoon one-third of the Dulce de Leche, over the brownie batter evenly in dollops, then drag a knife or spatula through and swirl. Pour the remaining brownie batter over, then spoon the remaining Dulce de Leche in dollops over the top of the brownie batter. Use a knife or spatula to swirl the Dulce de Leche creating a marbled effect.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. The brownies center will be slightly firm when they are done. Remove from the oven and allow cool completely.



The first thing you need to do is line an 8×8 pan with foil.  I used no stick foil so I did not have to spray it.






Melt your butter over low heat and then add your semi-sweet chocolate. (My chips look like that because they had been in the refrigerator) Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.


Remove from the heat and whisk in your cocoa until smooth.


Add in eggs one at a time.  It should look like this after adding them.




Next, stir in your sugar, vanilla and then flour.


Pour half of the brownie batter into your pan.




Add 1/3 of the dulce de leche in dollops on top of your batter.  Take a knife and drag it through the batter making a marbled effect. Add the rest of the batter on top and then add the rest of the dulce de leche to the top of the remaining batter.  Repeat dragging the knife through the batter and making a marbled effect.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35-45 minutes.


Cool completely before cutting.  Be ready for a wonderful treat!!!

I give this recipe plus out of 4……
