How to make Dulce De Leche

Hi friends! Today’s blog post is short and sweet just like this Dulce De Leche recipe. Okay okay, it’s not really a recipe and you could rather say they’re “instructions” but you get my point.  Dulce De Leche is a classic dessert in Latin America but recently it has gained a lot of popularity in the US. Growing up the number one way for me to enjoy Dulce De Leche was in empanadas which I would buy on the family’s weekly trip to the “Panaderia” (bakery). I miss those so much! Great news for you is that I will be sharing that recipe in the next few days so stand by for that 😉 .

For now, let’s continue talking about today’s recipe. There are two ways to make Dulce De Leche (well, I’m sure there are more but I only know these two):

1) By cooking whole milk, sugar & vanilla. This way is a little bit more tedious as you have to keep your eye on it constantly for a couple of hours and honestly who has time for that!

2) Or you can just boil a can of condensed milk for 2.5 hours. So simple!

  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  1. Remove the label from the sweetened condensed milk can.
  2. In a medium pot, place the can and fill with water enough to cover it completely.
  3. Turn the heat to medium high heat and once it starts to boil, lower to medium heat. Enough to keep the bubbles going.
  4. Cook the can for 2.5 hours, covered. Check the pot once in a while to make sure it’s always covered with water. If the water starts to evaporate, just add more.
  5. Enjoy!
