Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well and you are ready for the weekend. I know it’s only Thursday, but my weekend technically starts tomorrow this time, so I am excited.
It would be silly to repeat I am a huge fan of dulce de leche. Because you are perfectly aware of that. Yup, I love dulce de leche probably even more than Irish cream and lavender. By the way, I’ve paired dulce de leche with lavender and dulce de leche with Irish cream. Also, I’ve combined Irish cream with lavender. So I might be trying mixing all three things together one day!
That being said, I have more than 30 dulce de leche recipes on this blog. For someone who claims to love dulce de leche, that’s not good enough, right? So I am excited to share another idea.
Indeed, I made this Dulce De Leche Dessert a year ago. You can tell that because of Daisy’s presence. She’s grown up a lot since that and lost her interest in such participation. But maybe she just remember all that humiliation when I would dress her up last year for my Easter pictures, so she afraid to approach me with the camera lol.

Dulce De Leche Dessert
This Dulce De Leche Dessert might not sound too fancy (Dulce de Leche No Bake Cheesecake would sound more appealing, but as you know Mr. Google doesn’t like too long names.) But it tastes delightful, and it’s also ridiculously easy to make. Basically, you will need only few ingredients:
– Cream Cheese, preferably room temperature for easy incorporation
– Dulce de Leche
– Some light cream (10 or 18%), optional
– A pinch of salt
– Toasted and chopped nuts, optional but recommended (for the added texture and flavour). Think of pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts.
Depending on the consistency of your dulce de leche, you might not even need cream. Just keep in mind that without cream, the dessert will be very thick. The texture reminds something between a thick mousse and a cheesecake.
Also, you can use some other ingredients to enhance the flavour. For instance, vanilla extract. Some grated dark chocolate on top would be a great addition. Or perhaps a little of cayenne pepper for a kick. Oh wait – what about a splash of alcohol like bourbon or whiskey? Oooo why didn’t I think about this last year?! If you are using alcohol, there is no need for cream, too.
Did I mention it would only take 5 minutes to make it? Well, I would also recommend chilling the dessert for at least 30 minutes, but I won’t judge you if you enjoy it right away. Either way, it would be delicious!
I hope you like this easy dessert, and you will give it a try soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Dulce De Leche DessertCourse: Dessert
This easy Dulce De Leche Dessert is decadent and lusciously. And it only requires about 5 minutes of your time and few simple ingredients.
1 and 1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature (Remove from the refrigerator 1-2 hours prior to making it)
2/3 to 1 cup dulce de leche, to taste, room temperature + extra drizzle if desired
1-3 tbsp. of 10% or 18% cream, optional
a good pinch of salt
Toasted and chopped nuts (I used pecans, but walnuts, or hazelnuts would be great)
Possible additions: natural vanilla extract, a splash of alcohol (bourbon, whiskey, etc.), spices (cinnamon, cayenne, etc.)
- Place the cream cheese into a bowl and using a hand mixer, whip for about 30 seconds, at low speed.
- Stir in the dulce de leche (Starting with 2/3 cup first) and salt and whip for ~ 30-40 seconds, until just incorporated. Check the consistency and add the cream if it’s too thick. That’s also a good moment to stir in other aromatics like vanilla extract, spices, or alcohol. If using alcohol, skip the cream.
- Whip again for 10-15 seconds to incorporate. Transfer into individual glasses. Drizzle with some extra dulce de leche and sprinkle with some nuts, if desired.
- You can enjoy it right away, but I would recommend refrigerating it for 30 minutes or even longer. Enjoy!
