I have already professed my love for dulce de leche in my Dulce de Leche Duos post and have used this recipe in my Millionaire's Shortbread post, so why am I repeating this recipe? Well, anything with dulce de leche deserves to be repeated, but more importantly, I never showed you photographs! So here it is...the easiest way to make homemade dulce de leche and the photographs to prove it!
Dulce de Leche
adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking
1 can of sweetened condensed milk*
*You can cook 2 cans at a time if you wish. I also prefer to use fat free sweetened condensed milk because it's healthier without sacrificing taste!
Remove all labels from the can of sweetened condensed milk. Place the can in a crock pot and fill water so the can is submerged. Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove the can with tongs because the metal will be extremely hot. Wait about 30 minutes and open with a can opener.
