“Thick and fudgy brownies.  These desserts are about 2-inches thick. Chewy from the magic ingredient called “dulce de leche. You can swirl a dulce de leche gooey stuff on top with a choco stick and a caramel candy. Dulce de Leche is sweetened condensed milk that has been heated and through reaction changes taste and color.”
