Slow Cooker Caramel Sauce From Condensed Milk





  I discovered a cool way to make caramel sauce in a slow cooker and it is so easy. This caramel sauce tastes wonderful with apples and makes a great gift. All you need is a can of condensed milk ( the sweet one not evaporated milk.) You place the un-opened can in a slow cooker and fill with water to cover the can. I placed foil at the bottom on my slow cooker to prevent rust stains. For best results do not buy the condensed milk with a flip top. You can also use fat free condensed milk.



  Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. Then take can out of slow cooker(use tongs as it will be hot.) Then let it cool for 2 hours. when you open the can of cooked condensed milk, you will have wonderful caramel sauce. The caramel sauce needs to be stored in the fridge and keeps for about two weeks.


                     This caramel sauce is great with sliced apples. Here is how I served mine. This sauce would also be great with ice cream or apple pie. I once made a pear crisp with it and it was delicious.


   This caramel sauce also makes great gifts. Put the caramel sauce in a mason jar or any other container. Place a ribbon on the jar and pair it with some apples. Just let the person know they need to keep it in the fridge. This caramel sauce will keep for two weeks in the fridge.

  21. Never thought it's called caramel sause. We used to do it in Russia when were kids. The most important is not to forget about the can, otherwise you will have to clean the ceiling up :)
