Pioneer Woman's Dulce De Leche Brownies

Happy Valentine's Day!  Here is a sweet treat from the Pioneer Woman to make for your loved ones. 
These were a hit at our house, and they are super yummy.  I found the recipe in the Pioneer Woman's newest cookbook, and although I found the cooking times to be a little off, overall this was a very successful recipe.  Noah said I HAD to make them again, and I will because they were awesome.  These were cut into 16 servings, and each serving was 378 calories.  Aaron and I gave them an 8, and the boys gave them a 9. 
5 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 c butter, softened
2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 1/4 c flour
1 T vanilla
7 oz or so dulce de leche, warmed a little for stirring in
Melt the chocolate, then set aside to cool.  Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add one egg at a time, then slowly drizzle in cooled chocolate until combined.  Add the flour, then the vanilla.  Place into a greased pan, then stir in the dulce de leche in a marble pattern.  Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for at least an hour (recipe says 45-50 minutes), probably more.  I cooked mine for 70 minutes, and it could've cooked even longer.  Let cool in pan, then cut and serve.


  1. Does the dulce de leche come in a can or are they talking about sweetened condensed milk?? I made your dad some white chocolate macadamia nuts (from your cookie dough) and he bought me some red long stemmed roses that he had ordered from the florist and we picked them up on our way home last night from the temple. Thanks for sharing all of these recipes. I love you all. Love mom

    1. Dulce de leche comes in a can, it isn't sweetened condensed milk, unless you cook the sweetened condensed milk into caramel, and then it is almost the same.
