{Recipe} Dulce de Leche Bars

 I have seen all over the Internet through investigations...
That you can make Homemade Dulce de Leche
Using a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, Water, and a Crockpot.
Having never had Dulce de Leche before...
It wasn't bad, and it was a set it and forget for 8 hours type of thing.

I have wanted to make this homemade confection ever since Cheerios came out with a Dulce de Leche Cheerios.
This treat is super sweet and reminiscent of a rice krispie treat. 
I brought these to work where they were promptly gobbled up by coworkers...
 Which is good because I didn't need them around the house taunting and tempting me.

Dulce de Leche Bars

5 T  Butter
16 oz Marshmallows
7 cups Dulce de Leche Cheerios
1 1/2 cups Toasted Coconut
3/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
2 cans Dulce de Leche


Mix the cereal, tasted coconut, and chocolate chips in a large bowl, set aside.
Butter 2/3 of a jelly roll pan/cookie sheet.
Melt Butter on low heat, then stir in marshmallows.
Stir constantly so that the mallows melt, and so that it doesn't scorch.
Pour on top of the cereal mixture, carefully stirring and folding, until evenly coated.
Gently spread and press the treat in the pan.
Once it has set, and the Dulce de Leche is completely cooled,
Spread approximately 1 1/2 cans on top of the treat.
Cut, serve, and enjoy each sticky, gooey, sugar coma inducing bite. 

Reality Check~
Next time I make these, I am adding more toasted coconut and less chocolate according to my flavor preference.
These tasted better the second day, because the Dulce de Leche had time to meld flavors together, as well as adding additional moisture to the bars.
