Dulce De Leche Brownie Muffins

Dulce De Leche Brownie Muffins

Ohhhhh dulce de leche. How I love you and your ridiculously sweet gooeyness and how I would love to eat you with a spoon from the jar… This post is my ode to dulce de leche – one of my greatest vices in life.

Realising that eating it straight from the jar would probably reduce my life expectancy by more than just a little bit, I decided to pop it in a cake. but NOT just any cake, a deliciously moist and brownie like muffin. If you are really greedy, like me, then you can also spread some on the top once they’re done and eat them like that.If you don’t – you’re missing out. You should have FOMO.

Dulce De Leche Brownie Muffins

If you, for some crazy and horrific reason, don’t know what dulce de leche is – I would best describe it as a caramelized form of condensed milk. It’s extremely popular in South America – where different countries have different traditions and ways of making and eating it. I would love to do a South American Dulce De Leche tour. MMmmmm. mmmmmm. mmmmmmmmmmmMM.
