While well-known methods for homemade dulce de leche involve reducing condensed milk over the stove top or submerging a whole can of condensed milk under boiling water, you can safely and simply make a batch on your own with only two main ingredients: milk and sugar.

 

The most important tip to remember when you get it started is that it must cook low and slow. Also, give it a good stir every 10 to 15 minutes so that nothing gets stuck on the bottom or on the sides of the pan. It may take up a little time but the end result is always very well worth it!
