It’s true. I’ve tried having a talk with it, to tell it that we can’t keep doing this. This, making and eating of desserts all the time.
But I have an irrational sweet tooth.
Yesterday, I gave in. I made Dulce de Leche to put into Dulce de Leche Doughnuts and mini bundt cakes. Yes, you heard me right.
I started brewing the Dulce de Leche and the house started to smell like MmmmmmM. My daughter even said so.
I was tempted to just lick it up right there, and believe me, I “tested” it. But I used that ooey goodness to fold into the doughnut mixture I was creating. Hey, but I baked them, that’s healthy right?
Since I didn’t make enough Dulce (more ended up in our bellies), we had to suffice for a chocolate topping. The sprinkles are courtesy of my girls.
And I always say it was worth the trouble, the mess and the calories. Best part, you know every ingredient that you’ve put into it.
