      I used this recipe because it had micrwave directions. Very tasty! My only problem was that it got to be a little "crystalized". But that was solved by using a hand mixer while it was still warm. I put this in the fridge & the next day, made ice cream. I added this & some chopped pecans to the ice cream. It was a hit at our dinner party! Some of the Dulce de Leche had settled to the bottom of the ice cream - not much, but that wasn't a problem at all. Very very good. All the recipes I used are in my menu "Mexican Dinner Party". Thank you very much for the alternative cooking methods - I was too scared to try the "heat-in-the-unopened-can" method some had mentioned! :)

      I wanted to to make my own dulce de leche, but there are so many different ways to do it I was having a hard time deciding how to do it. I decided to use the oven recipe and poured 3 (14 oz.) cans into a bread pan, placed it in a roasting pan, and then poured warm (but not boiling) water into the roasting pan. Since I had three cans of condensed milk, it took more like 3 hours to get the color I was looking for. I peeked once an hour and stirred with a spoon since it was definitely picking up more color around the edges. I added a couple of cups of water to the roasting pan the second time I checked the dulce de leche. Once I took it out, I whisked in the bread pan and it started out a little lumpy, but I was able to incorporate the lumps and it turned out delicious! So thick and smooth. My three 14 oz. cans of SCM made about 3 3/4 cups of dulce de leche. Thanks for your recipe, I'll be using this method in the future since it worked so well for me! I can't wait to use this in recipes, and on some ice cream!

      I used the oven method and it worked out great-- one word of advice for anyone trying it out: make sure your pie pan will fit in the roasting pan before adding the milk or boiling water!
