    Ingredients
    Makes: 1 tin dulce de leche

    • 1 (397g) tin condensed sweetened milk

    Method
    Prep:1min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr1min 

    1. Place the tin in a saucepan and fill with water halfway up the sides of the tin. Bring to the boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 hours. Check every so often to ensure that the pan isn't about to run dry, as the tin can explode if there's no water in the pan. Top up with water as needed.
    2. After three hours, remove the tin using tongs and place in an ice bath. Let cool before opening.

    I’ve been told, but have not confirmed, that this is the recipe O’Charleys uses when making their famous Caramel Pie. I’m going to try it out this afternoon by doing as follows..... transform the sweetened condensed milk into the caramel luxury and when cooled empty into a graham cracker crust (actually I’m going to use two cans-one may not be enough!). I’ll top with a generous amount of heavily whipped cream and bittersweet dark chocolate shavings. Nut lovers can sprinkle toasted walnuts or pecans; either would work nicely! Refrigerate and indulge!  -  14 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Love this! I've heard of this before but wasn't sure how it was done. This is amazingly simple, and the flavor is incredible. i covered the can completely with water and put it on it's side because I couldn't stop hearing, "NEVER heat a closed system." The reason is that pressure builds in the can as it's heated. The can is strong enough for the little pressure thats built, but I would never want to use a weakened can.  -  23 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
