If you like caramels (those square caramels usually by Kraft), you HAVE to try this...

We had a can of sweetened, condensed milk... we heard a while back that if you put the can in hot water on the stove for a while, it'll turn into caramel-type sauce or something (you have to be careful because the can and likely the steam in the can gets HOT).

We tried it but didn't leave it long enough... it was just thick milk... but Sara put the condensed milk in a saucepan and cooked it on low heat... mixing most of the time but giving it short breaks once in a while... (be careful, it gets HOT!) When it's hot it smells a little sour but doens't taste sour and when it cools down, doesn't smell either. It turned into a texture and taste exactly like those caramels. It's SO good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mmmmm!

Apparently if you make it in the can, it has to be on low heat for like 2-3 hours and never let the water boil away - it has to be covered the whole time. Oh, the Eagle Brand site has information about making it but they say never to heat an open can. You've been warned - try it at your own risk! :)

Another site, in french, says how to make it... it's at the bottom, called Caramel Dolce leche.
