    Condensed milk is good for coffee, or on cereal, or in something like rice pudding or bread pudding, or you could freeze it.

    We don't use it for coffee (not really drinkers), but could you heat it up and ? change the texture and use for like, icing?

    Dulce de leche is no sweeter than the condensed milk used to make it is. It might even be less sweet. And it does freeze, there are ice cream recipes that use condensed milk. You could make some tasty iced coffee with ice cubes made of condensed milk.

    It does taste sweeter, because it's more concentrated.
    I personally think I'd just toss the rest of it.

    It doesn't get more concentrated in the usual way of making it, it just caramelizes in the closed can during the long exposure to heat. This can be accomplished in a few hours on top of the stove, in a slow cooker, or even in a pressure cooker. There is no evaporation, which would be needed in order to concentrate it. Caramelized sugars are usually a little less sweet.

    Really? They taste much sweeter to me.

    This is also a question about a can that's already open.

    I never waste any food and always freeze leftovers like condensed, evaporated or coconut milk in zip-lock bags, flattened out. That way is easy to break off pieces or use the whole thing later. Defrost in the refrigerator before use it.

    You can also use that condensed milk in a smoothie (instead of milk or yogurt and diluting it with fruit juice) and adding fresh fruits; or in a Cappuccino or Oriental style tea, or iced coffee latte, if you like them.

    These are very good recipes using 1/2 can condensed milk:
