I've made this many times using the condensed milk. I got a tip from my Irish friend -- you can boil several cans of the milk and then put them back in the cupboard until you are ready to use them. One time I gave her back is to buy pre-made caramel in the can. It's called Dulce de Leche and can be found by the Mexican food at your grocery store. It's exactly the same (according to my friend from Ireland). You do have to soften the dulce de leche up a bit to make it spreadable - easy to do in the microwave (out of the can of course!). Just made it last night - great stuff!


Yummy!...Instead of boiling the can of condensed milk I pour 2 cans into a 9 X 13 dish and cover with tin foil, put that into a larger oven dish, fill it with water half way up the 9 X 13, then bake at 300 degrees for 1 and a half hours---makes a wonderful toffee!

Absolutely AWESOME!!! This is FANTASTIC!! I was worried that one can of condensed milk wouldn't be enough but it was spot-on. (By the way, PLEASE don't worry about the can exploding. I've done it dozens of times, and I've lived to tell the tale... I do, however, make sure that I am around to top up the water as it boils off. Also, be careful when you open the can - the second it is punctured, the boiling hot milk oozes out. I wrap the can and the can-opener in an old towel, thus protecting my hand). Thanks so much, Madeleine!
