Easy Dulce de Leche

Using this excellent recipe, we fired up the Crock Pot and made Dulce de Leche ice cream sauce for Christmas presents this last year.  I hadn’t had the chance to sample any…until last night!Oh my stars!  It’s so tasty on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The only problem I had was getting my milk-filled mason jars to seal well enough.  That just meant that a bit of milk spilled into the water bath and made the water cloudy.  It took the full 8 hours for our carmel to turn the rich brown color, but if you start a batch in the morning, it will be ready for dessert!   So, the next time you’re at the grocery, pick up some sweetened condensed milk and make a batch of this sweet treat.
