How to Make Dulce de Leche


Description

If you’ve ever wondered how to make dulce de leche at home, this recipe is an easy, accessible method using condensed milk.


Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Remove any labels or paper from the can. And place in a large pot of water, completely submerged.

  • Make sure the can stays completely submerged, add water as necessary.
  • Please be careful. Don’t open the can while it’s still hot!
  • Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
