I had never heard of this method of making dulce de leche (caramelized sweet milk) until my dad saw it online and decided to try it. I must admit I thought he was a little crazy at the time, but it works great and who doesn't love caramel?
When I came to China I was surprised that sweetened condensed milk was readily available at every grocery store.(I guess when you see everything that is lacking, it strikes you odd that they actually do have an item you're looking for)
This dulce de leche make a great caramel dip for apples, or you can use it in place of icing to spread on a cake or brownies. Or what would be simply amazing (which I haven't tried, but just thought of right this minute) would be to use it to make caramel apple crumb pie. Oh, baby. I just might have to try that and report back. Anyway, enjoy!
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
I heat up a glass of water in the microwave for this so it doesn't bring down the temperature in the pot.
