Go From Basic To Bravo! How To Add Flavor To Your Food And Beverages With Dulce De Leche

Posted on

If you thought dulce de leche was just for cheesecake drizzles and cake flavors, you need to change the way you think about this sweet treat. Dulce de leche can be used to bring flavor to a variety of foods and beverages. Here are four great ways dulce de leche can add flavor to your food and beverages. 

Take Your Glazed Ham to the Next Level

If you're going to serve ham at your next dinner party, don't settle for the same old glaze. Switch to dulce de leche instead. You can use dulce de leche as a stand-alone ham glaze. Or, you can use it as the base for a truly unique take on the traditional ham glaze. One way is to add a bit of mustard and garlic to the dulce de leche. Experiment with different types of mustard to get the flavor you like. Want to add some zip to your dulce de leche ham glaze? Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the mix. 

Give Your Ice Cream Sundaes a New Twist

If you're used to grabbing the same basic toppings for your ice cream, grab fresh dulce de leche instead. The sweet flavor of dulce de leche will bring out the flavors of your ice cream. You can keep your ice cream simple by limiting the toppings to the dulce de leche, or you can add other flavors as well. Want to keep things natural? Add fresh fruit to the top of your ice cream. You'll get a sweet, fruity flavor from your favorite ice cream. 

Change the Way You Drink Your Morning Coffee

If you enjoy a hot cup of coffee each morning, add some new flavor. The cream may be the standard coffee additive. But, that doesn't mean it's the best. Change the way you drink your morning cup of coffee. Add a generous amount of dulce de leche. The caramel flavor will add just the right amount of sweetness to your coffee. Plus, since dulce de leche contains milk, you won't miss out on the creamer. 

Get Creative With Your Next Wine Tasting Party

If you're planning a wine tasting party, you want to get the pairings just right. Most people pair wines with cheese and fruit. If you're going to do that, don't forget to include dulce de leche. Dulce de leche pairs well with fruit and cheese. Plus, it will give your guests a fresh new flavor pairing with their wine choices.
