Making Dulce de Leche with Sweetened Condensed Milk
Making dulce de leche at home is very easy, but it does take about 3 hours, plus some time to let it cool. There are a few options to make it at home by using a can of sweetened condensed milk. These include the oven method and the stovetop method in the recipe below. Of course, if you are really extra, you can make dulce de leche from scratch, like shown here. We prefer the stovetop method, but do whatever is best for you.
When making dulce de leche using the stovetop method, make sure you puncture the top of the can to release pressure and prevent the possibility of the can exploding. Also make sure the can is fully submerged and the label has been removed. Then you just let heat do its magic to create this delicious sauce. There are some methods out there to make this without puncturing the can, but we caution against this for safety purposes.
Alternatively, if you are pressed for time, or have no desire to wait 3 hours to make dulce de leche for these brownies, you can buy a can of pre-made dulce de leche to add to this recipe.
