Easter Egg Dulce De Leche Dream Bars

These gooey dream bars are kind of like a brownie that has bathed in Dulce de Leche sauce. I prefer all my desserts be topped with caramel, and by baking condensed milk on top of the blondie batter, you form a rich layer of caramelized goodness that make these dessert bars DREAM-Y. Enjoy with any kind of candy, no matter the time of year, but especially during Easter (because why wouldn’t you take advantage of pastel colored chocolates).

Ingredients
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups AP flower
  • 1 cup chocolate Easter M&M's
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Coat the inside of a medium sized glass baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter by combining with both sugars an, beating on medium speed until pale yellow.
  3. Once a nice light yellow color, turn to low speed and add in each egg, one at a time.
  4. Add in the vanilla extract.
  5. Add in the baking powder and salt.
  6.  Add in the 3 cups of flour, individually, allowing each cup to mix in before adding the next one. Once it has formed a thick brownie batter, turn off mixer.
  7. Place the M&M’s in a large plastic bag and break up by pounding with a meat mallet or rolling pin. Add half into the batter and mix to incorporate.
  8. Reserve 1/2 cup of the batter. Pour the remaining batter into the baking dish, spread out into an even layer.
  9. Top the batter with the can of condensed milk. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining batter on top of the condensed milk. Top with the rest of the broken M&M’s.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes, until the batter has set and the top is browned.
  11. Allow to cool. Cut and serve.
