    • 2 (397g) tins sweetened condensed milk
    • 300ml spiced rum

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:4hr  ›  Extra time:35min cooling  ›  Ready in:4hr40min 

    1. Remove the labels from the cans of milk. Place the cans into a large saucepan and cover with a few centimetres of water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 4 hours. Keep an eye on the water level and add water as needed to keep at least an 2.5cm of water above the cans. After the cans have boiled for 4 hours, remove from the boiling water and set aside to cool for 35 minutes.
    2. Open the cans and scrape the browned milk into a bowl, whisk in the spiced rum until smooth, then pour into a bottle with a lid. This drink will keep for 2-3 months in the refrigerator.

    Very delicious, very naughty. I mix with Milk and add ice to make a long cocktail.  -  16 Sep 2010


    I took another reviewer's method and used the oven instead of boiling the mixture in a can. The top layer of the milk did nearly burn after an hour, but it was easily removed. I used 1/4 rum for one can of milk to adjust it to my tastes...IT'S SO GOOD. I hesitated to use the original method of browning the milk simply because the can has a label saying 'Do Not Heat in Can.' I've been told this pertains to using on a fire, but it was easier and FASTER to go with the oven method anyway. I do not like the taste of alcohol, so add the rum slowly until you have the taste you want. The full amount would be too much for 'light' drinkers.  -  29 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I found this recipe when trying to use up the rest of a can of sweetened condensed milk. Since the can was opened, I had to find a different method of heating the milk. I put the milk into a pie plate and the pie plate into another dish that I filled with boiling water. I placed this into a 375 oven for about an hour. Then continued with the recipe. I also blended the mixture because otherwise there would have been lumps. It is delicious and only took an hour and 15 minutes (total) to make instead of the almost 5 hours it states on here.  -  23 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
