Dulce de Leche Brownies

Hello favourite dessert EVER!

Hey! How have you been? I don't think I can remember a time where I was more busy then I am right now. I guess this is why there is a very high burnout rate for teachers. But I am loving every second of it!

Now my first class doesn't start until later (which means at 10), so I am making the most of my morning by baking! Best wake me up ever.

Nutella Dulce de Leche Brownies

I started with my favourite nutella brownies - which I make at least once a month - but then thought, how about I swirl the remainder of my dulce de leche on top?

Best. Idea. Ever.

I mean look at those swirls ^^.  How gorgeous is that?

Oh wait. I just took it out of the oven. Now it looks like this:

But don't let appearances deceive you. These brownies are something you don't want to miss!

I am very particular about my brownies. I will flat out refuse a dry brownie, unless you can top it with all the ice cream. If it's too chewy, you won't see me going for a second. But once you get the right combination of fudgyness and chew (and taste, obvs) then you have reached brownie heaven! And these brownies are pretty close to what I would call pure perfection. If only they looked better...

As you can see, I absolutely needed a bite shot. I don't mind biting into a brownie in exchange for a photo.

...Did I say one single brownie? I meant 8.

  4. Alternate between adding the flour and the butter into the Nutella mixture, and blend until fully combined.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Drop tablespoons of the dulce de leche over the brownies. Using a knife, carefully swirl the dulce de leche into the brownie mixture.

  1. Those swirls are the most beautiful things ever!! And they still look pretty when baked! Also, these look so fudgy and perfect :)


  2. Oh my goodness - I love it! The fudgy factor is through the roof and I can imagine the chew and moist texture in each bite. What a crazy yum treat!

  3. Nutella and dulce de leche in a brownie sounds absolutely fantastic. And they look so dense and rich! Definitely my kind of dessert!

  4. Neat! I have never tried dulce de leche, but it sounds amaaaazing! Your feather icing skills are also quite something - so fancy! :D
    I only had ferrero rocher today, but that'll do - there will be cakes to made soon, I'm almost certain of it :D xx

  5. I'm drooling...and I need this in my life asap!!
