Does anyone know a good recipe for a dulce de leche buttercream? I need something I can use under fondant-so no refrigeration, and crusting is preferable.

It opened for me, so I'll cut and paste the recipe:

2 sticks softened unsalted butter
4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 can of Nestles Dulce De Leche
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
approx 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
dash sea salt


cream 2 sticks of butter

slowly add 2 cups of the sifted powdered sugar

add vanilla and half of the cream/milk

mix till well incorporated

add half of the Dulce De Leche

mix till blended well

add remaining milk/cream

add the remaining Dulce De Leche

blend well

add salt

continue with the remaining 2 cups of sugar until you reach desired consistency.

Depending on your desired consistency you might use a little more or less of the sugar.

Mix on medium for about 4-5 minutes. Keep your eye on this as it mixes and do NOT over mix. I have had it turn grainy if I over mixed.

Sounds so good but I can't find a CAN of Nestle Dulce De Leche any where all I can find is the stuff in a squeeze bottle like Hershey's syrup.

Do you think you can use caramel ice cream topping if it's thin or runny and not real thick?

I've gone to 2 supermarket places yesterday and finally found it, in a specialty type of supermarket. Here is a picture of it. One of the local supermarkets told me that if I had the actual name of the item, they would order it for me. This was at Stop & Shop. Hope this helps.

You can also use International Delight Dulce de Leche added to your regular BC recipe for a milder flavor.
