Easy peasy. That’s what this recipe is. Easy. Peasy. Lemon squeezy. Or rather lime squeezy. We’re going to grill up some spiced pineapples and pair them with a delicious homemade dulce de leche recipe.
There’s really not much to say here, bestie! This super easy dulce de leche recipe uses a classic method to make a dulce de leche sauce, and pairs it with grilled pineapples that have been spiced with lime, honey and some paprika (for just a teensy bit of kick!).
It’s a super simple dessert, so I’d recommend you plate it with a scoop of ice cream (I *ahem* forgot to buy some on the day I was taking my photos), or you can do what I did: distract your guests by plating the dulce de leche and spiced pineapples on a pretty blue plate. Either works.
(But the ice cream option tastes better.)
Now, if the classic method for making dulce de leche is a bit too much fuss over too long a period, you should try out my easy homemade dulce de leche with condensed milk recipe instead.
