  • 1 Eagle Brand dulce de leche


  • Pour the dulce de leche sauce into a medium saucepan and place over medium-high heat.
  • Stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a boil for 5 to 8 minutes or until the desired consistency is reached (if you get to the point where the mixture is bubbling like thick, hot lava, your caramel will be very thick).
  • Transfer the mixture to a deep bowl and then blitz it with an immersion blender to get rid of any lumps (if you have any), while the mixture is still warm.
  • Transfer to a jar and store in the fridge.
