Caramel Dip for Apples

Ahh..another apple recipe for fall. This is every bit as good as it is simple!

Ingredients:
--one can sweetened condensed milk (either Eagle Brand or Carnation--store brands do not work as well)
--a little butter--maybe 1/2 tbls or so (or you can omit this, but the caramel won't be as rich)

Place the unopened can in a large saucepan. Cover with water and bring water to boil. Boil for about an hour and a half, turning can over once or twice. Let can sit on the counter for a few minutes and then open and pour into bowl. (If you open too soon the contents will spurt out all over the place--trust me!) Add butter and mix.

Enjoy!

    OMG - you cannot beat caramelized sweetened condensed milk!

    I saw this done on a food channel show on Argentinian-inspired food and the guy called it dulce de leche.

    You can also use this as an ice cream base, without the butter.

    I'm sure it is killer.

    I'll have to make the ice cream sometime soon.

    My family likes to dip sliced apples rather than coating a whole apple and this should work GREAT!! I can't wait to try it!

    ok but when do you add the caramel, with the butter?

    You add the butter just after you open the can, and dip the slices in the caramel.

    Can you make it a day ahead? Do you refridgerate after it's made? Can it be warmed in the microwave the next day? Thanks for the help. (Sorry if this is a repeat, my computer bombed after the last time I tried to post.)
