Dulce de Leche recipe! Learn how to make this at home!

My first introduction to dulce de leche – a thick, rich, caramel-like spread – was when a friend brought me home a jar from South America. At the time I was still living at home with my parents, so I had to strategically hide it behind boxes of noodles in the pantry to save it from being devoured by my siblings.

  • Can of sweet and condensed milk

Recipe:

  • Peel the label off the can of sweet and condensed milk

  • Place the pot on the stove and simmer for 3 hours
  • Keep an eye on the pot as it simmers, adding more water as needed to keep the can submerged in water
  • Remove the can from the pot and let cool before opening
