Dulce de Leche Bars

These Dulce de Leche Bars literally melt in your mouth with all their caramely glory. Also, they are truly addicting in a nice, satisfying way. I absolutely love using brown butter in my desserts. Because when mixed with the sugar, it adds an irresistible caramel flavor that makes any dessert so much better. The distinctive, sweet, caramel scent will fill your kitchen and your joy!

The Dulce de Leche Bars are a beautiful combination of textures and flavors. The first layer is a buttery shortbread, topped with a hefty amount of Dulce de Leche. Then, sweet coconut flakes and chopped walnuts are added for some chewiness and crunchiness. The walnuts add a beautiful flavor and go so well with the caramel. Lastly, the bars are topped with a brown butter crumb topping, that is the perfect way to end a decadent bite. They are indulgent on all the levels. A square is more than enough to satisfy your sweet tooth and its also hearty and delicious.

It's wonderful to read that I can get a dulce de leche bar that will melt in my mouth once I eat it. I think I'll look for a retail store that sells some so I can try making some bars out of it. Currently, I don't know any places that sell these, and since I lost my grandmother's old recipe for dulce de leche, it might be better for me to try buying some before I try making bars out of it.
