Don’t get me wrong…I love me a plain, fudge brownie with an ooey-gooey center and a shiny, crackly top. And I generally opt for the classic, but when I first tried these salted dulce de leche brownies, there was no question – I had just tasted the best brownie I’ve ever had, and there was no turning back.
This recipe starts with a super simple, one-bowl, fudge brownie recipe that makes a great foundation for any flavor combos you can imagine. Then we dial it up a notch with a homemade single-ingredient dulce de leche that will make you feel domesticated af.

Making Dulce de Leche at Home
Knowing that you can make dulce de leche at home with one ingredient opens a lot of doors! Plus, because it has a high sugar content (it’s basically candy), it will keep well for months. Just give it the ole’ sniff before using it.
