  1. Dulce de Leche is so simple to make at home, save
    yourself a trip: Pour a can of condensed milk into a
    glass pie plate, wrap in foil.Place pie plate into a
    roasting pan. Pour boiling water halfway up the pie
    plate and cook at 425 1 1/2 hrs. or until caramel
    colored. Remove and stir smooth. Speaking of Dulce
    de Leche, have you tried the Hagen Dasz ice cream by
    that name? It is THE BEST!!!

        Well, now that you mention it, Jonathan...I've made
        Dulce de Leche a few times by simply boiling a can of
        condensed milk for about an hour - making sure to keep
        it covered with water AT ALL TIMES, of course. This
        will PREVENT the can from BURSTING.

        Yes! Haagen Daz Dulce de Luche has been my guilty
        pleasure, elixer, nectar for months now. It is sublime
        (Although Laura finds it too sweet, which is Crazy,
        cause she makes such wickedly decadent desserts).
