Dulce de Leche Brownies
These are totally delicious and indulgent. Whenever I make them, my friends just can't get enough of them!

- 200g 70% dark chocolate
- chopped into small pieces
- 3 large eggs
- room temperature
- 150g white sugar
- 50g light brown sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Grease a 8″x8″ square baking tin and line with baking parchment (greasing the tin helps the baking paper stick to it).
2. Melt the butter and chocolate together in a heatproof bowl suspended over a pot of simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Once melted, set aside.
3. Using a wire whisk, beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla until thick and creamy. It should be able to easily coat the back of a spoon.
4. Add the chocolate mixture to the eggs mixture and slowly fold it in using a rubber spatula. The mixture should gradually thicken and become glossier.
5. Sift in the flour and salt and fold in until just combined.
6. Pour half of the brownie batter into the prepared pans. Using a spoon, dollop 2/3s of the dulce de leche evenly over the brownies. Use a butter knife to gently swirl the dulce de leche.
7. Top with the remaining brownie batter. Spoon dollops of the remaining dulce de leche on top and again swirl slightly with a butter knife.
8. Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with only a few moist crumbs. Let cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into pieces.
I usually make my dulce de leche by using the "boiling can" method. But be careful! Alternatively, you can use store bought dulce de leche.
