dulce de leche

Best Dulce de leche recipe

Vanilla and chocolate macarons with these fillings: dulce de leche, White chocolate raspberry ganache, and dark chocolate ganache. I have made everything once before except for the DULCE DE LECHE.

I have been wanting to give it a try ever since I found out the easy way of making dulce de leche: boiling the can. It's just fascinating!

SO what I did was: I bought a 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk and boiled it for... 3-4 hours. since I was afraid of walking away from it and having the can peek out of the surface of the water, (the can is supposed to be completely submerged) I had the can on a VERY VERY low simmer. So even though many recipes said 3 hours, I cooked mine closer to 4 hours. I waited till the next morning. Then... Voila. a beautiful can full of ... goo. I immediately reached for my spoon... or whatever it was, it may have been my finger, who knows... then I taste.
Super sweet. very very sweet. Normally this would be one of those things that is way too sweet for me to have on its own. But since I was using it for my Macarons, it worked perfectly. So so good.

Please try this if you are curious. Such a science experiment ;)
