Leftover condensed milk- what to do?
- Sony Mar 12, 2006 02:56 PM
Please help! I have 2/3 of a can (about 1 cup) of leftover sweetened condensed milk from making a batch of sweets. Besides:
-key lime pie
-dulce de leche
does anyone have any ideas about how I can use this up? Or if it freezes OK for baked applications?
Thanks for any help you can offer!
I don't know about freezing, but this stuff lasts for a really long time just in the fridge because it's so concentrated that things don't really successfully grow in it. I have some in my fridge that I swear looks and tastes fine after a month (!)

This recipe is so easy that it's embarrasing when people rave about them:
14 oz. sweetened shredded coconut
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg whites, at room temp
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
Combine coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla in a bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt until medium-firm peaks. Fold egg whites into other mixture (this is nearly impossible as the other one is so thick, but do your best).
Drop mixture onto parchment paper lined sheets (or I use a silpat) with either a 1 and 3/4 inch ice crea scoop or two teaspoons. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until golden. Cool on racks.
She doesn't do this, but I always then dip them into melted bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate after cooling.
mix it with canned fruit cocktail. for some reason this is a staple at filippino get-togethers.
