What´s better than brownies? well, dulce de leche cheesecake brownies of course!
It´s Friday! My boys and I look forward to Fridays. We´re almost done with school. They get to play video games. I get the whole afternoon free; baking, shopping, running. And a cup of tea with some dulce de leche cheesecake brownies.
Brownies are so easy to make. I´m always wondering why people buy a brownie mix. You can mix the whole thing in one bowl in like 5 minutes (if you count getting all your ingredientes ready).
For this dessert I put my three favorite things together. Brownie, cheesecake and dulce de leche. This brownie came out so moist, with crispy edges and little puddles of dulce de leche here and there.
To sweetten the cheesecake batter, I used dulce de leche. But because I love dulce de leche so much, I added a few more teaspoons to the brownie batter too, and then just swirl everything together.
Look at that little chunk of dulce de leche! come on! grab a piece of this dulce de leche cheesecake brownie and have a great weekend!
