Dulce de leche is literally translated to "candy of milk". It's basically like a caramel, but with a sweetened condensed milk flavour. It. Is. So. Good!
This confection is made from slowly heating sweetened milk to change it's flavour and colour. You can buy it in a jar or can already made, and it tastes great with a lot of different desserts (um....or on it's own...)! But, did you know you can make it yourself. True story. All you need is a can of sweetened condensed milk, and a slow cooker.
Homemade Dulce De Leche
This will last for up to a month in the fridge (apparently), but I usually make it to use it in something right away.
I emptied my can into a jar only because my husband thought it would be bad to heat it in the can (chemicals, etc.). I didn't tell him I had done it that way plenty of times before, but I emptied it into a jar to appease him. He's probably right anyway.....I kinda hate when that happens...
Well, now you know you can make this yourself! Generally I would set this up for the night, and wake up with the dulce de leche ready in the morning so I would have it ready for whatever I needed it for (and I'll share what I used it for soon)! In the meanwhile, you could make it just to see how easy it is, and maybe use it to drizzle on your ice-cream, or even have some on toast. Yummy!
