Homemade Dulce de Leche

If you have the time, make your own Dulce de Leche.  Take a can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, remove the label and submerge it on cold water, lid intact, in a small, heavy-bottomed pot.  Bring your water slowly to a low boil then reduce heat to a simmer.  Simmer can for about an hour. Remove from heat, allow to cool then remove contents with a spoon or spatula.  Voila.  Or, you can shortcut that and just pick up a jar of caramel at your local grocery store.

Make it easy.

  • Author: Cori Horton
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 - 9 inch pan 1x


Rich caramel flavour made all the more intense with the nutty sweetness of brown butter for a decedent delight, Dulce de Leche Brown Butter Blondies.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 squares (90 grams) white baking chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 cup Dulce de Leche (plus some for garnish, if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pecans or walnuts, roasted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) with rack in center.  Spray baking pan (9 x 9 square, 8 inch round or two 8.5 x 2.5-inch loaf pans) with non-stick spray to coat, then line bottom of baking pan with parchment paper, cut to cover corners, and come up the edge about a half-inch.
  2. Combine dry ingredients, flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.
  3. Roast nuts on a baking sheet in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 4 – 6 minutes until golden, then allow to cool and stand.
  4. Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat then continue cooking as butter solids brown then remove from heat and let stand for two minutes.  Place white chocolate in a small, heat-proof bowl then add butter, stir once or twice then reserve as the hot butter melts the chocolate.
  5. Beat egg and brown sugar in your electric mixing bowl until well creamed, light, and fluffy, mixing for about 3 minutes.  Remove mixing bowl from stand and using a spatula or wooden spoon stir in chocolate and butter until smooth.  Add vanilla and Dulce de Leche and stir until well mixed then fold in dry ingredients and nuts until a stiff, smooth dough forms.
  6. Distribute dough evenly in pan(s) and bake at  350°F (175°C) for 25 – 35 minutes, unit a tester inserted into the middle of the pan comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely in the baking pan for about 2 hours before removing, cutting, and serving.  To fancy it up for a party, drizzle Delce de Leche over the platter, or brownies, along with some melted chocolate, or top with chopped candy or chocolate bar.
