Love for Dulce de leche


Sweetened condensed milk is a favourite of many people, and when it comes to indulging in it, transform it into Dulce de leche which is nothing but the same condensed milk cooked in its own tin in boiling water for 4-5 hours to give the delicious toffee colored confectionery spread.

I came across Dulce de leche a few years back when I was working with an Argentinean restaurant, where they were using a lot of Dulce de leche in their dessert preparations. The love for the taste of Dulce de leche inspired me to work on different recipes based on them, and here  you can find one of them given below.
