Hello, nice to meet you, my name is Dulce de Leche Brownie and I am everything that is good in the world. My luscious caramel center provides a nice contrast to my cakey fudgey hybrid cocoa exterior. I’m deep and dark and brooding, full of depth and elaborate taste bud puzzles. I’ll leave you wanting more.
Yeah, I’m that brownie.
Required before/ during consuming me:
-ice cold cup of milk and/or nice hot cup of coffee
-yearning to be swept off of feet
-willingness to succumb to cravings for a second / third / fourth
-smile / desire to smile
Needless to say, these brownies are superb. A nice twist on an overdone, but timeless, classic. Welcome them into your life.. it’s a good choice. There is a good chance you’re still unsure of what exactly Dulce de Leche is- it’s caramel made from slowly cooked sweetened milk, instead of just sugar and butter. It comes from Latin America, and is possibly my favorite ingredient to cook with. In France, it’s Confiture de Lait. In Norway, it’s Hamar pålegg. In brownies, it’s genius.
Last night, it rained.
It sounded like magic and love and dreaming and soup and kittens. I put on my fluffiest sweatshirt and cuddled up in bed and watched super classy shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom 2. Keepin’ things elegant, you know. I was joyous; absolutely blissful. Until, without any warning, some scary evil malicious malevolent forceful force came over me and I was craving chocolate frosting something fierce.
No amount of Gossip Girl was going to help me and I knew it, so I gave in. But chocolate frosting? Really? I couldn’t just eat chocolate frosting off of a spoon, that’s so unsophisticated. Thankfully, the Heavens have blessed us with chocolate mousse. Espresso chocolate mousse. It’s acceptable the eat that off of a spoon, let me tell you. Basically, when the Queen of England and every Manhattan socialite ever get together for dessert, they eat this. So classy I can’t even handle it!
It’s like eating chocolate clouds off a spoon. Heaven in a bowl. I could on and on, but I’d rather you just make it for yourself.
