I’m bringing you another 3 ingredient dessert that will have your tastebuds singing with joy. Sweet, salty, and full of deliciousness.
2 bags chocolate chips
A couple handfuls of pretzels
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
1. Melt 1 bag chocolate chips in the microwave (15 seconds, stir, repeat until melted smooth).
2. Spread chocolate in bottom of a 9×9 pan. Layer pretzels to cover the chocolate. Let chocolate harden.
3. Pour 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk into a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly until it thickens (20-25 minutes). Remove from heat and spread over pretzels and chocolate. Let cool.
4. Melt 1 more bag of chocolate chips. Spread on top of caramel layer. Let chocolate harden.
When sweetened condensed milk is caramelized it is called dulche de leche. The sugar in the sweetened condensed milk provides all the sugar that is necessary to turn it into a caramel. Pure caramel is simply melted sugar. A creamy caramel has some sort of milk added to it like heavy cream. Dulche de leche, then, is simply a Spanish name for creamy caramel.
There are other ways to caramelize sweetened condensed milk. You can do it in a crockpot, a pressure cooker, the oven, other methods in a saucepan, and even the microwave. Check out this article HERE for instructions.
