She put 1 can of condensed milk in boiling water and couldn’t believe what happened next.

Do you want to know how to whip up a creamy, sumptuous dessert that not only gets your taste buds dancing but requires minimal effort in the kitchen? It might sound too good to be true, but the recipe for this mouth-watering treat couldn’t be simpler and surprisingly only requires one ingredient.

Time to throw away those complicated cookbooks asking you to perform miracles in the kitchen, with their confusing recipes and hard-to-find ingredients as all you need for this winning dessert is a pot of water, a kitchen timer and one can of condensed milk.

When you’re ready to create the caramel treat simply place a can of condensed milk in a pot of boiling water. The heat of the water turns the can into a type of pressure cooker, caramelizing the condensed milk inside and creating a gorgeous, creamy, toffee dessert.

The caramelizing process should take around three hours and all you have to do to ensure a sublime dish at the end is to make sure the can is submerged in the boiling water at all times. This is where the kitchen timer comes in handy, as you can set an alarm to remind you to top up the boiling water in the pot at different intervals.

Once it’s ready, carefully remove from the boiling water and leave to cool down before opening and enjoying. When it comes to cooking, it doesn’t get much simpler than that and the great news is, you don’t have to compromise on the taste.

This caramel dessert is commonly known as ‘Dulce de Leche’ and is popular across the world for its sweet toffee flavor. It’s traditionally made with milk and sugar, which is why using condensed milk, which includes both these ingredients, is the perfect way to create it.

Your friends and family will no doubt be very impressed with your cooking skills if you present them with your own homemade Dulce de Leche or perhaps you will just want to enjoy it on your own.
