Dulce de Leche in a can

Short cut method. Apparently, everybody's grandma makes it this way (including mine). Make sure the water covers the can or it will explode. Good with chocolate stirred into it after it is done.
DON'T LET AIR TOUCH THE HOT CAN. LEAVE IT IN THE WATER UNTIL IT IS COOL (OVERNIGHT).
