I seem to have made some indelible connection between dulce de leche and sweetened condensed milk. I didn’t use it when I made dulce de leche, but I bought a can then, just in case! Once again, I didn’t actually use dulce de leche in this recipe, but I melted brown sugar, butter and sweetened condensed milk to start it out, and that’s what I thought of.
The result is complete deliciousness. I’ve never made a brownie or a blondie with a more crackly top. And the inside is delightfully chewy and fudgy.
Here’s Blondie with Atomic. Wouldn’t you like to be Deborah Harry, living in NYC when this came out?
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (3/4 cup)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 t baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
Butter a brownie pan (10X14?) and preheat the oven to 350.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the two sugars and the vanilla. When it’s all a bit bubbly, but before all the sugar actually dissolves, take it off the heat and put it in a large bowl. Add the egg and mix well. Stir in the flour, salt, bp and cinnamon. Mix it up well! Add the sweetened condensed milk. Mix well. Add the chocolate chips. Mix well.
Spread evenly in the pan.
Bake for about 25 minutes till the edges are brown and it’s pulling away from the pan. Let it cool, then cut it up.
