This was one of the first pins I ever pinned on Pinterest, down at the very bottom, lost and forgotten! Which is so sad because these brownies are so good! They’re really moist and I love the little bits of dulce de leche throughout them.
I made them this weekend and me and Piggie almost have them polished off (it’s Monday, haha!).
These are Piggie approved (he’s a chocolate freak like his mama).
Recipe originally seen on Miss in the Kitchen.
Dulce de Leche Brownies
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
(Did you know you can save these empty butter wrappers and use them in place of spraying your baking pans with cooking oil? I always save mine for that purpose).
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.
