The base of this Nutella-dulce de leche recipe is a basic caramel sauce made by mixing brown sugar, condensed milk, and butter—these three ingredients make for a spread that you can use on its own, but adding Nutella to the mix makes it even better. Try this Nutella-dulce de leche spread drizzled over suman or turon; as a filling for thumbprint cookies, cookie cups, and chocolate cakes; as a spread on waffles and crepes; and as a dip for churros and doughnut balls.
