The very first candy bar that I ever remember getting from a grocery store was the Marathon bar.
Do you remember it? It looked like it was braided and it was caramel covered in chocolate.
I haven’t seen any of them in stores in like….forever.
You see, I heart chocolate. But coming in a very close second is caramel.
And today’s TWD is all about caramel.
Specifically Dulce de leche. Which literally translated means ‘sweet of the milk’.
All you have to do is take a can of sweetened condensed milk, put it in your crock pot, cover it with water…at least 2 inches… and cook it on high over night.
Voila~dulce de leche.
You can spread it on graham crackers, top ice cream, dip Oreo’s in it, eat it straight from the can with a spoon, or make today’s TWD that Jodie of Beansy Loves Cake picked for us.
Dulce de leche Duos.
These are fan.tastic!
I used heaping teaspoonfuls as directed, but as you can see…that was just to much.
So I made them smaller.
Not only is there dulce de leche in the cookies, but then you take some and spread it on the bottom of one.
And because I’m on a Nutella kick, I spread some on the bottom of the other half and sandwich them together.
Because you just can’t have enough Nutella.
Oh! my! goodness!
These cookies have everything that I love.
Butter, caramel, chocolate.
If you want to make some fabulous cookies, go grab the recipe from Jodie’s blog. It should be up sometime today.
