Slow Cooker Dulce de Leche
Dulce de leche is lusciously thick Latin American caramel that's traditionally made by boiling an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk. Our slow-cooker method allows you to monitor the caramel's color, plus the end result is an instant gift.
Flavor dulce de leche by stirring one of the following into each jar before cooking: 1 teaspoon grated unsweetened chocolate, bourbon or spiced rum; ½ teaspoon instant espresso coffee powder or ground ginger; ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean paste; or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, almond extract or coconut extract. (If making more than one flavor at a time, label lids with a permanent marker before cooking.)
