Dulce de Leche

To make this ridiculously simple recipe, just put an unopened can on it’s side covered completely (don’t want it exploding!) in gently boiling water  for two hours. That’s right. You don’t even open the can.  I found this idea in a Martha Stewart magazine (make sure to read instructions carefully so you don’t explode the can). Cool completely and then open the can……beautiful creamy caramel.
