A spot for me to ramble about my smooshie faced dogs, paper crafting, knitting and a little cooking...

Chocolate Fixation Friday

Dulce De Leche Brownies

I have to start out with saying I cheated this time. I used my favorite brownie recipe instead of the one listed. I did use the dulce de leche recipe though. Both Chris and I thought that these came out too sweet, and the dulce flavor wasn't all that pronounced. The normal chocolatey-ness these brownies have was subdued as well. I am not sure that I cooked the milk enough, it could have been darker, which might have made it taste better. I have been reading several other blogs that have used similar methods with sweetened condensed milk to make dulce de leche so I think I will try that again. The next fixation recipe was actually chosen by me, so hopefully I will like it!

My husband loved these brownies. he kept raving "best brownies ever". The dulce de leche was a tad too sweet for my tastebuds but he loved them.

I am sad that Chocolate Fixation may go away. Maybe some of us can band together and co-run it.

About Me

I live with my wonderful husband of 12 years Chris, Fitz the almost 1 year old pug, and the newest member of our family Bennett the 8 week old Shih-tzu. We have a second home on a small lake where I grew up, we watch altogether too much TV, and spend WAY too much time online. I have just started knitting, have been papercrafting for many years, and enjoy cooking.
