Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    If you can’t find dulce de leche in the cultural foods aisle of your store, try making your own by filling a baking dish with sweetened condensed milk and tightly covering with foil. Place the baking dish in a roasting pan and fill the roasting pan with water, three-fourths of the way up the dish. Bake at 425°F for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, checking every 30 minutes for a caramel colour.
  • Tip 2
    If you don’t have time to make dulce de leche and you can’t buy it, just substitute 1 bag of caramels with 1/3 cup evaporated milk, microwaving on High at 30-second increments until the caramels can be stirred smooth.
