Dulce de Leche Brownies

This weekend, like most, we watched the Oscars. Leading up to the Oscars, we have watched a few of the nominations for best picture. I really enjoyed Moneyball and I wasn’t expecting to. The very first quote of the movie was a Mickey Mantle quote, “It’s unbelievable how much you don’t know about the game you’ve been playing all your life.” From there it took you on a ride through statistics and economics and emotions that I quite enjoyed and I am not the biggest sports fan, so the movie gets a big thumbs up from me. Of course, when watching  the Oscars, a nice snack is always in order. A tray of brownies is always welcome in our house and I was very excited to make a version with dulce de leche swirled inside. It was so delicious and moist, it was definitely a winner in our books.

Dulce de Leche

  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 Tablespoon corn syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) Butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 recipe (1¼ cup) Dulce de Leche

Recipe Directions

Combine sweetened condensed milk and corn syrup in a large (2 to 2½ quart) microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power, stopping and stirring every 2 minutes initially then more frequently as needed during the middle of the cooking time for a total of 10 to 12 minutes or until the mixture is thick and caramel colored. It is important to watch the mixture as it cooks and stir frequently to avoid boil over. The mixture develops a somewhat curdled appearance that will smooth out when stirred. Whisk in butter and set aside.

Preheat oven to 325° F. Butter a 9X13-inch baking pan.Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.Combine flour, cocoa, and salt. Add dry ingredients into creamed mixture; mix until well blended. Spread ½ of mixture in the prepared pan. Drop spoonfuls of Dulce de Leche evenly over this layer. Cover with remaining brownie batter. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

  1. Like the “Money Ball” too … for the first time did I miss the Oscars – The Artist, best film … never heard about. Now I have to see it. Brownies – great stuff – suit my life!

  2. Yum… I love sticky gooey! And good to hear about Moneyball. I was just on a long flight last night and passed on it because I’m not much of a sports fan. But maybe I’ll give it a go on the return.
