This is a fantastic recipe! And couldn't be easier. It can even be made ahead of time. Dessert perfection!
Funny how things come back around. As a little girl, my mom would boil the sweetened condensed milk and to make Baby Ruth Bars. I actually wrote to Bordon about it several years ago and was told that was not safe, yadda, yadda. My brother saw this technique used in a banada cream pie recipe on one of the cooking channels recently. Thanks so much for confirming my childhood memory that you CAN boil the sw. milk in the can. This recipe looks great so I will try it this week.
Thanks for answering my question before I asked it....I can't wait to "boil a can of sweetened condensed milk" for a couple of hours....interesting! Or, I could find it in the Mexican Food Isle...but I like the idea of making my own...thanks again!
Dulce de Leche can be made a couple of ways...one is by mixing and stirring the ingredients and the other is by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk for a couple of hours. The secret of the latter is to be sure the can is covered by a couple of inches of water.
It is kinda like condensed milk but much, much thicker. It is a mexican carmal sauce. Nestle, La Lechera makes it. We have it in our Latino/Mexican isle.
Stonewall Kitchen's makes a Dulce de Leche sauce-I had some in the refrig so this recipe came at the right time. I plan on drizzling some on the top prior to serving as the flavor wasn't as pronounced as I like.
It's sort of like condensed milk, comes in a can but is more of a caramel cream sauce. I've never used it but I think I've seen it in Walmart on the Spanish foods aisle. There are also recipes to make it online. Good luck!
What is dulce de leche and where do you purchase it?
