With the holidays upon us, it is time to start fantasizing about all of the awesome meals that we are going to be enjoying. Now, we are here to teach you all about the wonders of caramel sauce.

It may seem like a complicated thing to put together but we are going to offer you the necessary reassurances in this regard. There’s no need to get stressed out.

Some countries refer to this concoction as dulce de leche but we are going to be calling it by its proper name: delicious. The method is incredibly simple and you do not have to be some sort of mega-talented chef to pull it off. Once you’ve made the gooey caramel sauce, you’ll be able to use it in a wide variety of ways.

It does not matter if you’re looking to use this in your apples, ice cream, cake, or popcorn. It works every time! The same goes for those who wish to dress up their coffee each morning. We cannot take all of the credit here, though.

We would like to take this time to give a special shout-out to Todd’s Kitchen for passing this one along to us.

To get started, grab some cans of sweetened condensed milk. It does not matter which brand you select, they are all great. Take the time and pour them into a pot of boiling water. You’ll also want to make sure that the water covers up the can. Let the pot simmer for at least three hours before you decide to proceed.

Check out the pot throughout the process. The last thing that you want to do is allow the cans to explode. The water must cover the tins for the entire process. Once the cooking is complete, things get even easier from there. The cans will need some time to cool but as soon as they have? You’ll be able to crack them open and enjoy to the fullest.
