My sister was visiting and shes a big fan of sweet things. I thought it would be the perfect time to use the wonderful dulce de leche with hazelnut that I brought back from Argentina. So we started the new year with some home made whole wheat waffles topped with lots of dulce de leche. I used this recipe, but made some changes.
Dulce de leche, or “sweet milk” is popular in Argentina and tastes like caramel. I bought mine from the Historias y Sabores chocolate factory in Mendoza. I also picked up a bottle of this dulce de leche with hazelnuts for my readers. I will be giving it away on my blog soon, so watch this space!
