Dulce de Leche

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.
