Homemade Caramel Sauce

A leave-it dish to impress your friends with.

This is oh so simple and oh so yummy, I just had to share.

Ingredient: One can of sweetened, condensed milk.

That’s right, only one ingredient. Take said ingredient and immerse it in a pot of boiling water (on it‘s side works best). Make sure the pot is big enough to allow for a rolling boil at least an inch or so above the top of the can. Let ingredient boil for 1 ½- 2 hours. The only tricky thing is not forgetting to check every 20-30 minutes and make sure there is enough water in the pot, otherwise you will mark the inside of your pot. Also, if your water is particularly hard you will want to have some vinegar on hand to soak your pot in afterward.

Viola! Open the can to find golden brown caramelly wonderfulness. It will have a consistency of caramel sauce and taste like Mexican dulce de leche.

What should you do with this impressive yet simple treat? Top some ice cream! Use it as an apple dip! Top some baked pears. Drizzle it in a pan of brownies before they hit the oven. Whatever you do, enjoy your new easy and versatile treat.
