I wanted to make dulche de leche but I didn't have any sweetened condensed milk. I found a recipe for dulche de leche online that used evaporated milk. My roommate is having a cub scouts pack meeting and needed something for her group. We had a vanilla bean and instant vanilla pudding in the cupboard. So I went to the store and picked up some coolwhip. And Vou La!
