Crock-Pot Dulce de Leche

I had a friend tell me you could make a fantastic dip this way, but never tried it.   I have seen a lot of talk lately on Pinterest about this and decided it was time to try.    This was awesome!  literally.    We dipped apples in it, and now I am going to toss popcorn with it and make a great snack!

    Oh wow! So simple. If I don’t use all the condensed milk I bought for making fudge, I’m so making this!!! Thanks Katie.

    It is interesting that the recipe says remove lable…and the can in the photo has it on! I am sure it tastes good either way.

      I didnt think of taking the label off when I put it in the crock-pot. But when I removed it and it was half tore off on one side, I thought that I probably should of taken it off. It works either way…just depends on how much of a mess you want to deal with. lol!

    I’ve done this and put 3 cans in the crockpot. As long as the cans are unopened, they will keep for quite some time in the pantry after they’ve been cooked. I read that somewhere and then I tried it. Cook once and indulge now and later!

    Would this work cooked outside of the can? I worry about the high Bpa levels these cans leach into food when exposed to higher temperatures. Thanks!!

      I put the milk into 4 ounce canning jars, and close them tightly. Cover with water and cook for 6-8 hours. If you have hard water, use distilled water so the jars come out shiny. Pull them out with tongs and let cool, they will seal themselves up.
