Condensed milk is simply regular cow’s milk that has had the water removed from it.

Sweetened condensed milk also has sugar added to it. It is very thick and flavorful. It is used as an ingredient in many dishes and desserts. Some people like to add it to coffee and tea or even drink it straight from the can. It has a lot of different uses and a very long shelf life. Oh, yeah, it’s also tasty.

To make this delicious treat all you have to do is place the can in the boiling pot of water and set a timer for 30 minutes – when it rings, you should return to add more water to the pot. It is important to add water that is already boiling in the pot because you don’t want to add water that is cold. If you do, the water will stop boiling. You’ll want to repeat this process 4-5 more times such that the can is submerged in boiling water for 2.5 – 3 hours total.

The boiling water creates pressure inside the can and makes something amazing happen.

The sweetened condensed milk in the can begins to caramelize.

It turns into a sweet concoction known as dulce de leche, a tasty caramel-flavored treat. Once the can cools, it can be opened and eaten as desired. You may find that you aren’t able to resist eating it out of the can with a spoon. It is also great to put on top of pies, cake, cookies, or, of course, ice cream.

Dulce de leche is a dessert that people enjoy all over the world. Most people aren’t aware of this genius little hack and actually spend hours trying to make it. Making it the traditional way requires a lot of stirring. In fact, if you quit stirring at any point in time, the milk could seize up and burn quickly. Who has time for that?
