    momaphet's Note:

    I went looking for a microwave version of Dulce de Leche - cause the whole idea of cooking a can for hours kind of freaks me out - mine would explode : ) This is can be used as topping or filling for all kinds of desserts - try it with Praline Alfajores

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Empty the can into a large (2-1/2 quart or larger) glass bowl, and cover with plastic wrap (cling film), keeping a tiny bit uncovered to prevent excess steam build-up.
    2. 2
      Microwave on medium power ( level 5 on a 10-level appliance) for 2 minutes. Remove, stir with a wire whisk, and recover. Cook on medium for 2 more minutes. Remove, stir with a whisk, recover.
    3. 3
      Then, in increments of 2-1/2 minutes, cook (on medium power) for another 10 minutes, stirring between each interval. After the first two stirs, you'll notice that the milk bubbles and foams up as it expels moisture. Then, with each stirring, the milk will be thicker and more caramel colored.
    4. 4
      If after the 10 minutes, you like the color and consistency, stop! If you'd like a thicker sauce, continue cooking in 1-minute increments for another 2-3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove from the microwave, and let cool before packing in a glass jar, or use right away to fill Alfajores or as a topping for ice cream.
    6. 6
      NOTE Food,com doesn't allow you to have only one ingredient so I had to add another. Everyone like salst with caramel these days so just for fun you coud add a pinch to what ever your putting the Dulce de Leche in - but it's really not needed!

      Once I figured out how to cook this due to my microwave and dish, it turned out GREAT. I only had a 2 quart glass dish, so I had to stop the microwave every 30 seconds and stir after I cooked it the first 2-1/2 minutes. I don't know if I even made it the full 10 minutes (or if it was more, I lost count) and I had to remove the plastic wrap too because it just got too hot and it started shrinking and causing a mess. But the outcome was VERY GOOD! I loved the idea that I could make this in the microwave (I did use the 5 power setting). Thanks for a great recipe I will definitely be using again...for many things!
