I had never made caramel before. I was unsure about how it would turn out, having only ONE ingredient! I put the unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in the crockpot on low & left for the pirate festival.
When I came back, this is what I had:
I wasn’t sure if it turned out properly because the caramel in the photo from the recipe site was much darker brown. (Again, apologies for the picture quality, I only have my phone).
I set some aside for my family & put the rest in a Mason jar. We enjoyed ours with Granny Smith apples! The smooth & creamy sweetness was perfectly set off by the tart & crunchy apples.
This is as addictive as Nutella! I hope the Nutella fiends don’t accuse me of blasphemy, but it’s true! I didn’t want to stop eating this delicious caramel. I want some right now but I’m out of sweetened condensed milk & would have to wait 8 hours! Why am I never prepared? 😉
The only issue I had was that the can left a ring in my crockpot liner. It looks like the black coating came off. Does anyone know if it’s still safe to use?
