NYMTK: David Lebovitz's Dulce de Leche Brownies

And now...... for another edition of Not Your Momma's Test Kitchen brought to you by How To Eat A Cupcake! Thank you so very much to Jordana Weiner for submitting David Lebovitz's recipe for Dulce de Leche Brownies! I'm pretty sure no one will ever submit a recipe that will be able to top this one! I encourage you to try, but just know this is some very serious competition! You want to know just how good these brownies are?? During a commercial break of the elimination episode of American Idol, I got up to sneak a little taste of these brownies while they were still warm. They are SO FREAKIN GOOD that American Idol is STILL paused as I'm blogging this! I couldn't keep it to myself. I had to let the world know that I am in dulce de leche brownie heaven right now!
The brownie itself is a cross between cakey and fudgy (cakey/fudgy hybrids = the best brownies, IMHO). The chocolate flavor is spot on! And the little dollops of dulce de leche are so creamy and sweet and awesome! I've never had memorable success with homemade brownies, but now I'm ready to shout from a rooftop that I have found sweet brownie utopia!!
Oh hel-lo handsome!!Ahh, pure decadence!!Click the next photo for a close-up you can practically TASTE! :P

Lazy Cook said...

where do you find dulce de leche in a can? I gotta try it!

sweetjeanette said...

Oh my goodness!!!!! I have GOT to try these! I think hubby will be at my mercy with these!!! LOL

Steph said...

Oh, I'm soooo stoked about these. They are perfect for me right now. I have tried lots of caramel brownies, but haven't liked any of the recipes. Plus I just discovered those cans of Dulce de Leche at Walmart in the Hispanic section I think(while trying out one of your delicious cupcake recipes), so I have some on hand. And finally, I'm excited because I've been wanting to find a new brownie recipe and this sounds super tasty. :) No nuts for me, though. Thanks!

Jelli Bean said...

I have made another version of these brownies, and they also turned out quite well. Yours look better though, as the dulce de leche stayed on top. Mine was of a cheaper brand and probably for that reason melted into the brownies a little more. Good work!

Sarah said...

I'm drooling on my keyboard right now. These look phenomenal.

Stella said...

WOW! I use Nestle dulce de leche when i make a coffee cake, rice pudding, and i also insert it in the center of a shortcake cupcake :) Its taste a lot like a twin key with caramel. Your desert looks Delicious!

Joanne said...

Oh wow these are insane! Dulce de leche is one of my favorite things ever. I have to try these!

Jodi said...

OMG those look absolutely amazing... I cannot wait to make them!!

IQphantom said...

Girl you are bloody crazy reading my mind like that???!!!! I mean what are the freakin odds?????

I was looking for the same recipe to make this week....OMG!!!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pen Pen said...

Did you end up taking the brownies out a little early?! I made some brownie cupcakes recently, and I hadn't done brownies in a really long time. I was surprised that I felt they needed to come out of the oven about 4 minutes early(even based on the "brownie cupcake" recipe I used. If I had left them in for the full time, they would have been hard...it was kind of weird. I'm not really sure what that was about... :)
These look really moist tho! BRAVO!!!!

Lucie said...

Dulce de leche and brownies have to be two of my favorite things. I had this recipe bookmarked but never got around to making it--you've just convinced me!

Katie said...

Oh my!! They look sinfully decedant!

Tasty Eats At Home said...

See, and here I thought I'd finally reached brownie excellence, perfection, even. These obviously blow that away. Dulce de leche plus brownie? YUM!

dani said...

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Good thing those aren't near my kitchen--they look deadly!! :-)

Culinary Couture said...

Omg. This is so gonna ruin my diet. I love brownies. Do you think these would be as gooey and rich without the dulce de leche?

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets said...

I got this idea from David's blog, too! But I simply added enthusiastic blobs of dulce de leche to my favorite brownie recipe and it was sensational!

Sarah said...

Those brownies look dangerously good!

Danger Kitten said...

Wow. These look like ultra brownies! And, by the way, you're right about Rose Levy Beranbaum. She is fabulous! Do you have her new book?

Ingrid said...

LOL, a nut! :)Sweet brownie utopia? LOL, yup a nut!

Amee said...

Cassie I don't eat brownies but I made these because I looove caramel and they ROCK!! I have a problem finding Dulce de Leche though so I just used condensed milk which was a bit runny but still delicious! Thanks for sharing :)

apparentlyjessy said...

Woah! They look like the most decadent brownies I have ever seen!

Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] said...

I've had this on my mind for soo long!!! Not just on my to-do list, but on my mind!! You just gave me the push, I'm making this asap!

Debs said...

This was just too much for me. I got up half way through the post, went to my cupboard and opened up my treasured can of Havanna dulce de leche. I'm spooning it straight up, like a demented crack whore on her pipe.
