White Chocolate Brownies with Dulce De Leche Filling
1 cup butter
2 cups white chocolate -- coarsely chopped
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 can Dulce De Leche
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
Melt butter and chocolate together.
Mix eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla together. Add to butter mixture.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well and stir in mini chocolate chips.
Heat dulce de leche in a microwave to spreadable consistency.
Pour half of the brownie mixture into a 9 x 13 pan sprayed with cooking spray. **Sprinkle toasted pecans over the brownie mixture. Dollop the dulce de leche onto the pecans, and carefully spread evenly to within one inch of the edge. Do not spread all the way to the edges or it will burn during baking. Pour the remaining brownie batter over the dulce de leche.
Bake in a 350ºF oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Allow to cook completely before cutting and serving.
** It's important to sprinkle the nuts on first so you have a something slightly firm to spread the dulce de leche onto.
