This recipe was tested with Nestle La Lechera dulce de leche; look for it in the international foods section. If using Eagle Brand dulce de leche (caramel flavored sauce), thicken according to package directions before using.
Also, this is a very thick layer of dulce de leche and quite messy, please feel free to use only one can if you are bringing to to a potluck or something!
