Sweetened Condensed Milk + Boiling Water = Yummy caramel!

Sharing is caring!

Did you know that you can boil a can of sweetened condensed milk and get caramel? I learned this awesome tip from my friend Tina that use to live here with me in Mexico! She is an awesome cook!

How to make caramel:

Put 1 can of sweetened condensed milk in a pot and cover it completely with water. Boil for about 4 hours. Make sure you keep the can covered with water because it will start to boil away.
Here is what it looks like when it is done.

I have to use this recipe a lot in Mexico if I need caramel for a recipe! We can’t buy caramel stuff here.

Yup just take off the wrapper and put the unopened can in water to boil. Just be careful when you open it because it it very hot! I am going to post this later but it makes an awesome caramel pie!
