Dulce de Leche Brownies

When I made the dulce de leche for the mocha caramel cookies, I ended up having quite a bit left over. The recipe I used says dulce de leche will keep for a month in the fridge, but I didn’t like the idea of just having it sit around for that long (especially when it’s…

Coconut Peppermint Patties

I love Girl Scout cookies (my favorites are Samoas, Tagalongs, and Thin Mints) and have ever since my days as a Girl Scout.
