Dulce De Leche (Spanish Caramel – Cheats Recipe)

I would really love to spend the time and do a proper dulce de leche.

But hey, in the meantime, this stuff tastes pretty amazing!
Its simply boiled condensed milk that caramelizes and forms a thick, luscious, golden caramel that is really hard to resist eating by the spoonful.

1. Using a small saucepan (wide enough to fit both cans side by side), place both cans (labels removed). Fill the saucepan with water till it reaches 2/3 up the side of the cans.

2. Boil the water for 2 hours, topping up the levels to maintain the water to be at least 1/2 way up the cans.

3. Once complete, take the saucepan off the heat. Cool the cans until able to be handled. Remove the lid and place contents into jar or bowl of choice.

4. Grab a spoon and dig in 😉

*Step 4 is optional… if you have will power.
