Dulce de Leche

A post! Woohoo. I spent flippen ages searching through food gawker looking at the different techniques of how to make dulce de leche, a couple of hours pass and i still hadn't figured out how to say it. Oh well. I ended up using no recipe just some comments from different blogs (which all contradicted themselves haha) including: open the tin slightly to let the steam or whatever out; then some posts would say NEVER open the tin that is when it is likely to explode, cover the tin completely in water or cover it 3/4 of the way rah rah rah.

I used light condensed milk and it worked out great, i can't compare it though cause i've never made nor tried dulce de leche before. If i can make it, anyone can. Super duper easy.

Dulce de Leche
ProPoints: 30 for the entire tin haha

400g tin of light condensed milk, label removed
large pot

Put tin into a large pot and completely submerge in water, bring to the boil then lower the element to a simmer and let it do its thing for three hours.

Let the caramel cool completly before opening the tin! I left mine over night.

Done! Now, what to do with it. I'm going to make WW brownies with dulce de leche swirled though and a brownie caramel slice, right now. I will post it when its done. YAY
