    I love dulce de leche! It’s so yummy! I’ve made it the crockpot way before but it isn’t as thick as the one you made. Thanks for sharing. =)

      Helen, it actually depends on the brand of condensed milk you used, as well as how long (and whether the gas was simmered or not) you have cooked the condensed mik in the crockpot. I love the runny versions as well. They go well as toppings on ice creams as well as to flavour coffee or tea! 🙂

    I had no idea Dulche de Leche was first made by accident! Great history here. I’ve had this often, and it’s wonderful stuff. This is popular in Cuba, and I used to live in Florida, where Cuban food is popular – so that’s where I got introduced to it. This really is so easy to make – I need to try it sometime. Thanks for this.

      You are most welcome, Kitchen Riffs. Dulce de Leche is difficult to find in Indian superstores, so I thought I should make this at home. Not to mention the endless possibilities with this dessert ingredient. My husband loves these in crepes and my kids want Dulce de leche ice cream. Me? I eat just like that…

    Hi, Purabi!!! I love dulce de leche or , as we say in Brazilian Portuguese, doce de leite!!! I grew up eating it and have enjoyed making it from boiled condensed milk. xx

    One of my favorite flavors! I once made dulce de leche using the oven method. I used it for filling cookies before sandwiching together. I think I will try your crock pot method.

    You sure do have a handsome taste-tester!

      Thanks Lorraine. Oh, cookie filling sounds so tempting! And my “handsome taste-tester” and his younger sister love my Dulce de Leche fudge I made recently (recipe coming up soon). Everyday they come from school and ask me to give the fudge. The smile on their faces makes my day!

    I looove dulce de leche! I first discovered it years ago when I was traveling it Argentina – as you say, it’s SO popular there. I tried some (in a crepe, I believe?) and I couldn’t believe I had never had it, or heard of it, in the USA. Thankfully, it’s become much more popular here in the US in the past few years. And even better, now I know how to make it myself -thanks for sharing the recipe! =)

      Thanks Amy! My husband loves it in crepes too. You are lucky that it is now available in US stores, unlike the stores here in India. But it is really easy to make at home!

    Oh Purabi, this post reminds me of my childhood…my mom used to make this in the pressure cooker…and depending of the length that she would cook the texture would be different…this are delicious on bread as well.
    Hope you are having a wonderful week 🙂

    Hey is this supposed to be Fahrenheit not Celsius?
    440 Celsius is above my ovens maximum temperature.
    Can you just confirm as I’ve got through the first part and it’s cooling to room temp.
