Fourth of July: Dulce de Leche Brownies

Wow I don't remember the last time I ate a brownie sooo delicious.     It is hard to believe something that tastes so good is so simple to make.  Perfect for the upcoming holiday or just great anytime.  Instead of making the Dulce de Leche and the brownie mix from scratch, I did a very semi homemade brownie.

I started by buying my favorite brownie mix - Duncan Hines Double Decadent Brownie Mix and a can of Dulce de Leche.  That is it.  Two main ingredients for  a  slightly chewy delicious brownie with the goodness of Dulce de Leche.

I prepared the brownie mix using the instructions for cake like brownies.  I spread half the batter in an 8x8-inch baking dish that was lined with foil that was lightly sprayed.   Next, I dropped spoonfuls of the Dulce de Leche on top of the batter and made swirly design patterns in the brownies  using a knife.  I then spread the remaining brownie batter over the swirled batter.  I then repeated the process with the Dulce de leche.

I baked the brownies according to package directions and let them cool.

Of course the family had to sample the brownies and all agreed they were delicious.
