Dulce de Leche Brownies

I'm pretty sure that everyone likes a thick and gooey brownie. I mean, if there are people out there who don't like big slabs of chocolatey goodness, then I've certainly never met them.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder optional
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 - 1 cup dulce de leche depending on how caramel-y you want it

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.
  • In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
  • Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  • Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until well combined.
  • Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Drop spoonfuls of half of the dulce de leche over the top and swirl with a butter knife. Top with the remaining brownie batter and dulce de leche, swirling with a knife. Bake for about 30 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.
