Recipe: Dulce de Leche Brownies

I can't believe it is already week four of the 12 weeks of Christmas cookies.  I didn't have a lot of time this week so I wanted to make something easy but yummy.  Who doesn't love brownies and caramel?  This would be perfect to make when you don't have a lot of time and you need a fabulous dessert, hostess gift or a dessert to share.  And it only requires five ingredients!

Dulce de Leche Brownies

1 box brownie mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
pecans, optional

Make brownies according to box directions.  Once you remove the brownies from the oven, make the frosting.  In a saucepan, combine condensed milk and butter.  Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly.  Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes more or until slightly thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.  Pour frosting over brownies, spreading evenly.  Sprinkle with nuts.  Cool completely before cutting.
