Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute

Total Time

I found this on ochef.com. According to them, recipes using dried (powdered) milk approximate the texture but not the flavor of true sweetened condensed milk, and the following recipe tastes much better. It is not as thick as regular condensed milk, but it works fine as an ingredient in bar cookie recipes. SOURCE: www.ochef.com


  1. Combine ingredients in a saucepan.
  2. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved; cool.
  3. May be refrigerated for several days.

I love using this. It is a great substitute and so much cheaper than going to the store to get it. I use a lot of this during the Christmas season making my cookies and bars. I have this in a safe place so I know where it is at all times!

This is the one to use! I made it because I was in a pinch and didn't want to go to the store, but I will definately do it again...much less expensive than the canned version. Thanks you!
