I made these using Eagle Brand dulce de leche and the squares were a flop. They were really runny. I see below that sstetzel suggests to thicken according to package direction but on the cans I uses there is nothing stating how to thinken it. Thet taste really good but not presentable for company that's for sure. Id love to make these again but we don't have Nestle Brand dulce de leche here. Thanks
If I were to make them again, I'd definitely use just one can of leche. These are unbelievably sweet.
This recipe was tested with Nestle La Lechera dulce de leche; look for it in the international foods section. If using Eagle Brand dulce de leche (caramel flavored sauce), thicken according to package directions before using.
Hope this helps!
Easy and tasty. I'm a big fan of caramel and felt the cinnamon overpowered the dulce de leche. I just greased the pan instead of using parchment and they removed perfectly.
It's a day later and I have to give another star since my son liked these VERY much. I like them better now also after heating them a bit in the microwave before eating.
These bars are amazing!! They are rich, but not too rich and the base is a nice soft cookie. I took these to work last week and everyone made a comment on how good they were. They were actually pretty easy too, even with the three layers. You could probably use 1 can of leche if you want that layer thinner.
