Slow Cooker Sweetened Condensed Milk Caramel

Yields 1 to 1 1/2 cups of caramel


⭐1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk


⭐Remove the label from the can, leaving no paper traces behind.

⭐Place the can on its side in the slow cooker. You can cook several cans to make a larger batch.

⭐To avoid pressure buildup and an explosion, fill the cooker with water and cover the cans by at least 2 inches.

⭐Cook on ‘Low’ for eight hours. Use tongs to carefully remove the hot can.

⭐Allow the can to cool completely at room temperature to attain the ideal caramel consistency.

⭐Open the cooled can to reveal your homemade caramel, a golden treat that complements any dessert.

Variations and Tips:

For a lighter caramel, shorten the cooking time to 6 hours.

Safety first: Never open a hot can to avoid burns from exploding contents.

Make caramel in quantity and save the unopened cans in your pantry.

For added taste, after chilling, sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt or half a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

For those who enjoy a culinary adventure, this caramel can also be cooked in a pressure cooker in around 40 minutes; however, always observe your pressure cooker’s safety rules!

There you have it: an easy yet delectable cream cheese pie recipe that will improve any party with its delicious flavor. Try it and see how quickly it becomes a popular choice!
