Dulce De YUMMY!

For reals, though, this crack in a can yummy sauce is called Dulce De Leche. I found the recipe here about a year or more ago and finally got around to making it!

You may already know what I'm talking about...Caramel Like Goodness slow-cooked right in the can. So it isn't even really a recipe. Did I mention it's GOOD? I'm drooling as I type and glancing at my fridge. And it's EASY. I could make some more. Right now. While I snack on the jar I already made. Hmmmm...spaghetti for dinner or Dulce De Leche? I'll get back to you on that...


The theory is: take a couple of cans of Sweetened Condensed Milk and take the labels off. Place them in your crock pot and add enough water to submerge the cans. Cover that baby up and cook it on low for 8 hours. Then wait for the water to cool in the crock before removing the cans.

That's it!


The sweetened condensed milk people (and probably the crock pot people and maybe the fire department) don't recommend you slow cook sealed cans. I think it's an explosive hazard. Pressure and stuff like that...not sure...didn't take physics. I took chemistry, but we didn't cover this, we just made peanut brittle.


Mine didn't explode. 
I'm not telling you to make it. But if you DO try's not my fault if your kitchen explodes. That's concludes  my Public Service Announcement on Blowing Up Things in Your Kitchen.

My only remaining instructions (if you decided to ignore my PSA and make this amazing golden deliciousness) are to open the can. Insert a spoon. Immediately eat a quarter of the can with your back turned to your family. Then cut up some apples and share!

I was telling my sister about this just this past weekend. Only I started to tell her to put the cans in the microwave and then realized that would be a sure fire way to blow up the kitchen. =D I have to try this. Caramel apples are one of my favorite fall snacks.

Amy, this looks really tasty and your dialoge in this post is pretty fun. Also thanks for dropping Creatively Content. I love making our Granola it is so simple . I can throw it together the morning of in 25 minutes or less! Anyhoo much care to you. :) Oh and your ghost cookies are extra cute because they are so simple and I love nutter butters.
