1-Ingredient Dulce de Leche l sherisilver.com


I’ve been considering taking a try at this for YEARS now. I mean, one ingredient? How could it go wrong? And what’s the big deal if it does??

Thing is, I don’t use caramel sauce that often, so there never seemed to be the right time.

Till now.

I came across a popsicle recipe that required……..caramel sauce, and decided to dive in.

SUPER easy.

SUPER delicious.

And I now may “need” to expand my repertoire of caramel recipes. My friend Bea makes these yummy Argentinian cookies called Alfajores – essentially caramel sandwiched between two shortbread cookies.

But for now I think I’ll just slather it on vanilla ice cream.

What would you do with dulce de leche?

Dulce de Leche

14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, label removed

Place the can on its side in a large pot filled with water, making sure that it is fully submerged.

Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours. Keep an eye on the pot and top off with hot water if needed, to keep the can submerged.

Carefully remove the can (I used tongs), and cool completely on a wire rack (do NOT open the can until it is cooled). Transfer to an air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to a month. If you need to soften it to a more spreadable consistency, warm it up in the top half of a double boiler.
