Hot Dulce de Leche

Hot Dulce de Leche: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

For those of you that may be unfamiliar with dulce de leche, it taste similar to caramel, but is thicker in texture. The term dulce de leche means, "candy of milk" or "sweet of milk". It is made by boiling milk, sugar, baking soda and then simmering until thickened and caramelized and then adding vanilla extract. Lately you may have seen a quick way of making it by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk either in a crock pot or on the stove. But you may have also heard about how there is a possibility of it exploding. For me the simplest way is to buy a can of dulce de leche at the grocery store in the ethnic/Mexican food section.

This drink combines milk and dulce de leche into at hot drink that is so very very delicious. After I finished my drink I was tempted to make some more. But I had an idea of how to use the leftover dulce de leche, so check back Monday to see what else I made with dulce de leche.
