I made homemade dulce de leche specifically to make these cheesecake bars. Our monthly steering meeting's potluck theme was Mexican and I thought these would be the perfect dessert. It is a labor of love and took a few hours to make all the pieces of the puzzle, but in the end it was completely worth it. These bars are rich, but unbelievable. They turn out in a completely awesome way - you can see all the layers - and it looks so impressive. I, of course, had extras and took them to the company where they were gone in an instant. I think it's almost expected that I come in with some type of food if I visit :)
