I wish to address something. Finally. Before you roll your eyes and go “Another Dulce De Leche recipe??!!” Allow me to explain.
I use dulce de leche a lot.
Here’s the deal-e-yo – Dulce de leche is my weakness. Well, Dulce De Leche and a Benicio Del Toro Idris Elba Sandwich. If Benicio and Idris were doused in dulce de leche I wouldn’t know HOW to act. It’s a good thing that hasn’t happened yet. But a chick can dream, right?
There. It’s out.
I’m weak for for dulce de leche.
Just look at it all creamy and whatnot.
What is dulce de leche?
Glad you asked homeslice. Dulce de Leche is a confection, a combination of milk and sugar slowly cooked to delicious caramelized perfection. There’s a lot of stirring involved. It’s worth it. If you’ve ever wondered what the Maillard Reaction is, look no further than a slow cooking pot of dulce de leche.
I weaken at the site of it. More often than not you can find me hiding in a corner spooning dulce de leche in my mouth. I do my best thinking hiding from my family as I get my caramelized milk and sugar fix. It’s real. And this is why I make so many desserts with it. Otherwise mounds of dulce de leche end up in my mouth and travel to my ever-expanding Dominican hips where they linger for life. Making recipes is my way of getting rid of dulce de leche before it causes anymore damage.
No more talkin’ – Here I bring you my favorite Dulce De Leche recipes.
Are you down?
I know its winter and all, but we’re going to start with an ice cream situation. Did you know cinnamon and dulce de leche are a match made in heaven?
You didn’t? Now you know.
This Cinnamon Ice Cream with Dulce De Leche Swirl is where it’s at.
How about these Banana Walnut Dulce De Leche Chip Cookies? It’s a mouthful, alright – But these soft baked cookies have dulce de leche mixed into the dough for a caramel goodness you need to taste to believe.
What happens when you sandwich dulce de leche between two soft baked brownie cookies?
Mind.Blown. That’s what.
And you’re not serious about dulce de leche unless it oozes out of a molten chocolate cake.
Go on, stop what you’re doing. Resistance is… Maaaaan, you already know.
