  • In a microwave safe bowl warm the dulce de leche until pourable for about 20-30 seconds.
  • Drizzle 1/2 over the final layer of cubed cake. Frost with the remaining whipped topping.
  • Drizzle the whipped topping with the remaining dulce de leche, sprinkle with bits-o-brickle and chopped pecans. (Make sure the dulce de leche is cooled slightly)
