There are dozens of ways to make this delicious treat. I have found that using the Instant Pot will enable you to make Dulce de Leche (candy of milk) in minutes instead of having to boil it for several hours. It is very popular and traditional in many Latin American countries. Delicious in coffee, warm it in the microwave for a great syrup, spread it on toast or crackers, makes a tasty dip for fruit, or use it as icing for cakes or cupcakes. Try it and you will find even more delicious ways to use this tasty treat.

How to Make Dulce de Leche - Instant Pot

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove the paper label from the sweetened condensed milk can.
    (This will keep it from falling apart in the hot water.)
  2. Put the sweetened condensed milk can on its side in the Instant Pot.
    (I tried using a trivet and found it isn't needed.)
    (You can put several cans in the pot without having to change any of the settings.)
  3. Put enough water in the pot to cover the sweetened condensed milk can.
  4. Close and lock the lid. Select MANUAL and set timer for 40 minutes.
  5. When the pressure time is completed release pressure carefully using the quick-release method
  6. Remove the the sweetened condensed milk can and set it on a towel to cool or put it into cold water to cool.
    BE CAREFUL THE CAN IS SUPER HOT!
  7. When the can has cooled down you can open the can with a can opener and transfer the contents to a bowl or refrigerator container.
