The hostess gift that I am bringing to parties this year is homemade Dulce de Leche. It’s perfect over ice cream, as a filling for sandwich cookies or just enjoyed by the spoonful. With three (little!) kids, it can be really tough to get anything done but I still want to make an effort and gift my friends with something tasty and homemade. And so, I settled upon this one ingredient Dulce de Leche. It’s awesome. Bon Appetit!
Homemade Dulce de Leche
The easiest way to make Fabulous homemade Dulce de Leche!
Ingredients: Can of sweetened condensed milk (make sure it is not evaporated milk!)
- Empty the contents of a can into an oven-proof dish; and cover it with foil.
- Place the covered dish in a larger roasting or casserole pan and fill it up with water until reaches three quarters of the up the covered dish to create a water bath. Bake at 425 degrees F for 60-90 minutes checking every 30 minutes on the water level and add more as needed. Stir the dulce de leche every time you check on it so that it browns evenly.
- Dule de leche is ready when it takes on a brown and caramel-like appearance. Remove from the oven and whisk to smoothness. Let cool before storing.
