And Sometimes It Works…Dulce De Leche in the Crockpot

crock pot dulce de leche

A few months ago, I wrote a post about how Pinterest successfully sucks up my time but often executing the recipes turns out to be a total disaster.  Well, I had seen Crockpot Dulce De Leche floating around for a long time and just never got around to trying it.

This past Saturday, however, I had a little extra time around the house so I peeled the wrapper off a can of sweetened and condensed milk and threw it in the crockpot on low and 8 hours later when I opened the can I had thick creamy beautiful caramel.  I am in love.  It was hard to resist not eating this straight with a spoon from the can.  So hard, in fact, that I did eat some straight from the can.  It would be dreamy over some ice cream or as a fruit dip.

Dulce De Leche in a Crockpot

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

Peel label off can of sweetened condensed milk.  Put in crockpot.  Fill crockpot with water so that can is submerged.  Turn crockpot heat to low and wait 8 hours.  Turn off crockpot.  Allow to cool.  I actually turned off my crockpot and left it set overnight to cool.  You do not want hot caramel burning your face.  If we wanted that, we could have cooked it on the stove.   Remove can from water, open and enjoy.
