Dulce de Leche

Dulce de Leche is absolutely amazing, trust me. It tastes like caramel, and is ridiculously easy to make. Forget going to the store and buying a jar of (probably) over priced dulce de leche, make your own at home. It tastes so good drizzled over ice cream, in yogurt, spread on toast, blended in a milkshake, baked in brownies...the possibilities are endless.

I had some baking to get done yesterday (two loaves of white bread and a peanut butter coffee cake), so I figured I might as well get around to making the dulce de leche. All you need is one ingredient, sweetened condensed milk. That's it, really! Throw it in a pot of water, making sure that the can is submerged, bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for three hours. It's important to make sure that the can stays submerged at all times, or else the can could explode. Don't let that frighten you off though, it's so easy and worth it. Check out {Not Without Salt} if you want to see some pictures.

Once the dulce de leche was ready (and then cooled for a couple of hours), Stephen and I slathered it on our peanut butter coffee cake, and then we may or may not have used up the rest of the ice cream and some more dulce de leche to make milkshakes. I will neither confirm or deny that last bit.

I really like saying dulce de leche.
Say it with me..."Dulce de Leche..."
