This recipe does work but the cooking times and heat need to be revised. I was able to use this recipe after cooking the mixture for 20-30 min and by reducing the liquid to make it a thicker consistency. Then it was perfect. This does work, however it needs modifications to make it perfect.

Thickness is absolutely imperative to sweetened condensed (the operative word) milk. Genuine condensed milk had half of its liquid content rapidly evaporated in order to concentrate the milk solids significantly. Be aware that this recipe only provides for the sweetness of the canned sweetened, condensed milk, but does nothing to actually condense it. Hence, it will not work in recipes designed for sweetened condensed milk. This is nothing more than milk with sugar dissolved in it, and other than the sugar bears no resemblance to sweetened, condensed milk.

I read what others said about the thickness when using evaporated milk, so I substituted real cream for evaporated milk. It worked perfectly!! I used it in a recipe for home made hot fudge. Wonderful!!
