here). I ended up with a lighter, creamier and thinner dulce de leche. Each is equally good, it just depends on what you need it for. If you want to use it as a filling for a cake or cupcakes, the thicker one is better. If you want to pour it over ice cream or crepes, then the thinner one works better. I did like my homemade dulce de leche better with these crepes because the taste didn't over power the cinnamon flavor and the light fluffy texture of the crepe. The thicker, darker dulce de leche was just to strong for this delicate treat.
