Wicked Good Dulche de Leche
A month ago or so I was in a specialty food store and picked up a $9 jar of Dulche de Leche (creamy caramel goodness). I managed to keep the drool in my mouth, but put the jar back ... 'cause $9?? Really? To my side was a lady who was apparently watching my caramel lust and commented to me: "You know, you can make that in a crockpot or something. I never done it, but my friend did and it was amazing. You should Google it." So I did.
Are you ready for this? You take a can of sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk!), take the label off, put the whole unopened can in the crockpot, cover it with water, set to low, and 'cook' for 10 hours. Let cool slightly before opening. Done.
Imagine my family's delight when we came home from swimming and cracked open a can of warm gooey caramel goodness! It's like magic. Is that wicked?
