I am all about short cuts…in case you couldn’t tell. Recipes that are easy, and help me save money are the best. This one, does both.
I love caramel sauce, for everything from apples, to ice cream. It can be pricey at the store and a pain to make in the kitchen.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that you can make homemade caramel in one easy step…in your crockpot. It doesn’t get much easier than this folks.
Place a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk in your crockpot and cover it with water. Cook it on high for 4 hours. That is it!
Shut off the crockpot after 4 hours and allow the can to cool completely!
When you open the can you will be met by this golden creamy delicious caramel sauce. I used mine for some apples, and then put the rest in a container in the fridge.
The caramel dip at the store costs almost $4, while a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk costs $1.25. So if you are saving money vs. buying the pre-made stuff at the store. Plus, did I mention that this tastes WAY better?!
