Ingredients

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk remove labels

Instructions

  • Place the sweetened condensed milk on it's side in a saucepan and fully cover with about 2-3 inches of water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 2½ to 3 hours. 
  • Check the water levels as it keeps boiling, and top up with additional hot water as required, to keep the can fully submerged while cooking.
  • Carefully remove with tongs and allow to cool for 1 hour before opening. Can be prepared in advance and store unopened for a few months (might need slight reheating though to make it spreadable). Enjoy
