Mexican Brownies

I promised you some highlights from Gloria's new cookbook, Food and Flavors of San Antonio, and I decided to start with the Mexican Brownies. When I saw this recipe, I knew that I had to make these. You can't go wrong with a decadent recipe that combines chocolate, cinnamon, and dulce de leche! As a bonus, these brownies start from a box mix and are super easy to make.

Mexican Brownies
1 19.8 oz package brownie mix, plus ingredients to prepare brownies
2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened

2 tbsp confectioners' sugar

1/2 cup dulce de leche

Directions:
Prepare and bake the brownies according to the package directions, adding cinnamon to the batter. Cool completely.


Place the cream cheese in a medium size bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.


Add the confectioners' sugar and dulce de leche. Beat until well mixed and creamy.
Frost the brownies with the dulce de leche icing.

Serves 8

Wow...that looks incredible! And so easy too. My husband loves dulce de leche. We always keep a little container of it in our refrigerator. He likes to spread it on bread. Thanks for sharing!

Holy YUM!!! These are SO good. Thanks for sharing my recipe. :)
BTW, for people who can't find dulce de leche in cans, you can make your own; the recipe in the cookbook explains how.
