🥛 Dulce de Leche

Dulce de Leche

⏲ Total Time
3.00 hours

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🥛 1 can sweetened condensed milk

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 large pan
  • 1 pair of tongs or slotted spoon

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil. Make sure that you put enough water in the pan to completely cover the can you're about to cook.

Step 2

Remove the label from the can of sweetened condensed milk and carefully submerge it into the boiling water using a pair of tongs or slotted spoon. Make sure you place the can on its side, so it can roll around. If you place the can bottom or top-side down, the boiling water can cause it to bounce up and down, which is really annoying...

Step 3

Cook the can for 3 hours, making sure the can is covered with water at all times. Add more boiling water if necessary.

Step 4

Using a pair of tongs, a fork, or a slotted spoon, take the can out of the pan and place it onto a heatproof surface to cool. Make sure it has cooled to room temperature before you open the can, otherwise the dulce de leche will squirt out like a fountain... Once cooled, stir until smooth.

Step 5

Cooled dulce de leche can be stored, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks

Step 6

Spread it on bread, drizzle over cookies, cake or ice cream or eat by the spoonful. Enjoy!
