 Thanks to Moms with Crockpots for this  saving money recipe for Caramel Dip made in the Crockpot!
I have had this before and yes it is very yummy… easy as be too!  Hope you enjoy!

Place a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk in your crockpot and cover it with water. Cook it on high for 4 hours. That is it!

Shut off the crockpot after 4 hours and allow the can to cool completely!

When you open the can you will be met by this golden creamy delicious caramel sauce. I used mine for some apples, and then put the rest in a container in the fridge. The caramel dip at the store costs almost $4, while a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk costs $1.25. So even if you aren’t saving loads of time, you are saving money. Plus, did I mention that this tastes WAY better?!

I made my comment yesterday, and somejow it disappeared... ;-( I can answer to some questions: - yes, it is shelf stable, if you will not open the can. -you can cook more than one at a time, no need to cook longer. It's like with eggs - you do not cook 10 eggs longer than 1, if you are doing tham at the same time. -you can cook it for 4-6 hours, the longer you cook, the darker color will be and milk will be more stiff -you can cook it on the stove too, the same time, 4 to 6 hours. Do not let the water level get lower than can level, can will explode! -you can whip it with your mixer , add 1 stick of unsalted butter at room temperature and use for frosting cake or cupcakes.

i have done this before and my recipe said to cook for 6 hours. It was really good though. And also the water left a ring of white around my black crockpot that took a few soakings to come off.

Have you ever done several cans at once? If so, do you need to let them cook longer? Last, are these still shelf stable? I think you did a post about using these as inexpensive Christmas gifts last year and I'd love to a half a dozen at a time! Thanks for all you do!
