If you’re looking for the worlds best Dulce De Leche Brownies, you’ve come to the right place! You’d never guess that these were made with a cake mix!
I’m one of those people that gets ridiculously excited about their friend’s success. I love it when my family and friends achieve great things and recently, my friend Hayley did just that! This year she published her cookbook. ” Out of the Box Desserts“ and I am so very happy for her!
Her publisher sent me a copy a few weeks ago and I’ve been in love with every single photo and recipe that I’ve looked at! The photos are gorgeous (just like the ones on Hayley’s blog) and the recipes are so easy to follow.
I know she’s been counting down the release date of her cookbook baby and oh my and guess what! Today is the day y’all!
Hayley’s cookbook comes out today!
No matter what kind of baker you are, you’re going to want to grab a copy. She’s got a ton of fantastic, tempting recipes that take ordinary ingredients like cake mix and transforms them into amazing, out of this world desserts, like these Dulce De Leche Brownies.
She’s also got some from scratch recipes in the cookbook too! I’m tell ya, you’re gonna love it.
So today, to celebrate, I’m making the Dulce De Leche Brownies from Hayley’s new cookbook,” Out of the Box Desserts“ and sharing the recipe with y’all! (with her permission of course haha)
So, onto the Dulce De Leche Brownies! Let’s start with the Dulce De Leche, yes you can make your own but that’s NOT what we’re doing here. We’re using the Dulce De Leche in a can.
By the way, speaking of Dulce De Leche in the can, you may be tempeted to just pick up a can in the baking section of your local market, but take a second and walk over to the Hispanic section of the grocery store. You can normally find Dulce De Leche there and it’s normally less expensive. Maybe not a ton less but hey, sometimes every penny counts, right?
Also you can find the sweetened condensed milk for the recipe for less money in the Hispanic section too.
Now it’s onto the rolos. Y’all, rolos are one of my favorite candies. Oh my gosh and do you know that I didn’t start eating them until like 4 years ago. I was totally missing out on these lovely little candies all of those years!
Look, here is pretty much the only thing I changed up from Hayley’s original recipe.
Hayley’s recipe calls for 30 unwrapped rolos. Now before I knew about mini rolos I would have just been like “Ok” and started unwrapping 30 rolos, but I’m not about that life. hahahaha
I took a short cut and bought the mini rolos that are already unwrapped. Since I was using the mini ones, I used 50. BUT feel free to use whichever you want. It’ll turn out perfect either way.
I’m just lazy. haha
Also one little things that I want to note. When start making these and you’ve started to mix the cake mix and egg with the melted butter you’re going to think that it’s too dry. Don’t worry, just keep mixing and it’ll all come together. It’s not going to be like a normally brownies batter though, so don’ fret. It’s going to look more like a chocolate cookie dough. 🙂 – Just wanted to throw that our there.
Also, make sure to take notice of Hayley’s note about letting them sit. They’re super ooey, gooey so you’ve got to let them sit for quite a few hours after they come out of the oven so that they cool down and firm up so that you can cut them. I know it’s going to be hard to wait for them but you just gotta have patience. It’ll be worth it!
Oh my and let me tell you something. If you’re looking for the most amazing, chocolate, caramel, Dulce De Leche stuffed dessert on the planet, look no more because you have found it. These Dulce De Leche Brownies are literally one of the best brownies that I’ve ever had.
I give Hayley huge props for making such a fantastic and easy brownie! I have to be honest, I see myself making a lot more of these in m future and I see myself experimenting a lot more with cake mix brownies too!
