I found this recipe at www.cookingforengineers.com. One bowl, one ingredient, fifteen minutes, and you're done! But don't forget the oven mitts. I've heard this stuff can be like napalm!

  1. Pour sweetened condensed milk into a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on MEDIUM for two minutes.
  3. CAREFULLY remove from microwave and whisk. (I did this using two oven mitts to move the bowl, un-mitted my left hand to hold the whisk, and used my right hand, still in the mitt, to steady the bowl as I whisked.).
  4. Return to microwave and repeat, heating two minutes at a time and whisking until mixture looks curdled.
  5. Remove from microwave and whisk again for a dulce de leche sauce.
  6. For a candy texture repeat cooking and stirring one more time.
  7. Cool and serve.
