…and all of a sudden, we have a brownie. I’ve been wanting Mark to try an espresso brownie with a homemade dulce de leche filling, and lo and behold, it’s awesome! Mark makes the best birthday cakes and one of my favorite flavors that he made for Mia’s 3rd last year was a chocolate cake with dulce de leche filling and buttercream frosting. This brownie captures that flavor and is dense, rich and packs a caffeine punch (not to mention sugar), but the brownie base isn’t overly sweet so it doesn’t overwhelm the dulce de leche. We may have to incorporate the dulce de leche into the brownie, rather than as a filling once we start to think of packaging and shelf life, but for now, we’re pretty happy with the results.
