Homemade Crockpot Caramel Dip Recipe

Homemade Crockpot Caramel Dip or Dulce de Leche as some people prefer to call it is AMAZING!  I love that you can make it using ONE Ingredient!  All you need is Sweetened Condensed Milk, water and a Crockpot!  This makes a fabulous dessert and best of all for me – it is gluten free!  I love to serve this with sliced apples!

One tip – be sure to cover your can well with water and turn on and walk away for four hours. You must allow your can to cool completely before opening or you will have a HUGE mess (ask me how I know :-)

Be sure to PIN this recipe! It is one you will make over and over! It is so easy!

  1. this idea will be great to share with me preschool parents….great way to have the kidos eat more fruit

  2. How does it turn into carmel flavor,maybe im stupid,but i dont get it.im going to google now

  3. Do you remove the can from the hot water to cool?
    – or –
    Do you leave it in the hot water for both to cool
    (a longer, gradual cool down with a longer cook time)?

  4. Any Idea how long you can leave this in the unopened can after you make it? For instance, if I make 2 cans at once and just put the second in the fridge for later use. Or, do you think it would do better to open the can and put it in a Tupperware container to store it? How long will it last in the fridge???

      Karen, would open the can and then place in the fridge. I kept mine for 14 days before it was all gone :-)

  5. This sounds delish except for one thing. CANS ARE LINED WITH BPA. Which is already moderately toxic. Of course everyone will tell you its safe. Its not. hence reason they tell you not to drink from a water bottle that has been sitting in the sun. Heat heats container up, leeching BPA into water. Same thing with this caramel sauce. I am all for crock pot use, but not this one!!

  6. Ohhh this dip sounds so delicious, and I can’t believe how easy it is to make! Perfect for this time of year, too!

  7. That’s it? One ingredient? I’m in. I’ve never heard of this ~ it’s hard to believe that cooking the sweetened condensed milk like that would turn in into a caramel sauce. It looks delicious. Do you think you could share this recipe post and any of your other great posts at our Making Monday link party? We would love it. Thanks. Have a fabulous day. http://www.abrightandbeautifullife.com/making-monday-9/

  8. I’ve heard of cooking it in the can before,but never thought of doing it in the crock pot.

  9. MMM now all I need are some honeycrisp apples to go with it!

  10. If you prefer not to cook it in the can, you can pour it into a canning jar.

  11. What the hell? This worries me.,.
