This might be my favourite recipe in the world. Literally, put it in the pan for two hours and you have something delicious that you can add to almost any sweet dish.

It is so easy! icon

Purchase a condensed milk can (it has to be a sealed can with no easy-lift lid), wash it off and remove any stickers. Use Acetone to remove any adhesive left.

Place the washed can in a pot,

Once the water is boiling, cover the pot with its lid and forget about it for at least 2 hours. The time really depends on the consistency you like it, my husband does not like it too thick, so 2 hours are enough for us. The longer you wait, the thickest it gets.

Wait for 20 minutes for the can to cool off before opening it with a can opener. And... That's it!
