I’m not sure where the idea came from, I haven’t had these before but I had been wanting to add some latin flavor to this blog. Dulce de Leche is very common in South America (where I grew up), and sometimes I find myself missing the stuff I used to eat. So I decided to mix 2 of my favorite things and here it is!

Fair warning: this is pretty sweet so feel free to reduce the amount of dulce de leche to your liking. I went with the whole can for extra gooeyness but it also works with just half. It’s also very addicting, especially on a late Friday date night in.
