Pecan Dulce de Leche Brownies : simply the best, better than all the rest …

We both fell in love with dulce de leche. Our bonds with it are definitely unbreakable 🙂

It’s completely new delicacy to us discovered few years ago and I make it from scratch whenever possible. Pecan Dulce de Leche Brownies are one of so many ways we use this precious milk jam.

We combine it with all the food that would include Nutella. Dulce de leche is an excellent substitute.
I made Dulce de Leche Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with vanila flavoured dulce de leche but for these brownies I made dulce with five cinnamon sticks instead vanilla added to condensed milk at the begining of the process and it gives quite different amazing comforting flavour.

It enriches cookies, waffels, biscuits,pancakes, slice of bread and so much more so nicely and it is really very hard to resist its’ the flavours.
After combining it with waffles, pancakes, muffins, ice creams, cookies and hot chocolate I made these Pecan Dulce de Leche Brownies.
Although cut when completely cold, both my son and I prefer to have the slices warmed up in the microwave. If you do that be aware of hot dulce; maybe you could cool it with some ice cream aside 🙂
