  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 14 ounce dulce de leche
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


  • Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with wax paper or grease pan.
  • Add white chocolate chips and dulce de leche to a microwave safe mixing bowl. Stir to coat.
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  • Remove from microwave and stir until melted. If they chocolate chips aren’t completely melted you may need to microwave for 10 more seconds, then stir. Repeat until melted and smooth. Add vanilla. Stir.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish. Spread to edges.
  • Let sit until firm. I put it in the fridge for about 3 hours.
  • Cut into bite size pieces. Store leftovers in the fridge.
