Dulce de Leche Bars

Melissa Snow


I found this recipe at www.yourhomebasedmom.com. I've become addicted to these bars and have been making them at least once a week. I did tweak the recipe just a little and use 1/2 c of the crumb mixture for the topping instead of 1/4 c. I think they look better that way. You can use homemade Dulce de Leche or store bought. Fortunately, the store I shop at carries it. You will usually find it next to the sweetened condensed milk in the baking aisle
