dip of the month: caramel sauce

i recently heard about this recipe from my mom who heard it from my sister who heard it from someone else who i am sure heard it from someone else. this is the easiest (and most delicious) recipe ever, and only one ingredient: a can of sweetened condensed milk (or 2 or 3 or 4). I wish would have made more than one can at a time.
put the can of sweetened condensed milk in a bot full of boiling water. make sure the can is completely covered with water at all times. i heard that the can could explode if it is not completely covered. i was a little paranoid when i heard that and kept running to the kitchen if i heard any suspicious sounds. i kept a pitcher full of water nearby so i could quickly add water to the pot if needed. boil for 2-4 hours.

after cooking remove the can from the boiling water using tongs and sit in sink to cool.

caramel is now ready to serve or store! Transfer from can to another container to store in fridge. is great as an ice cream topping or dip for fruit or marshmallows (or anything else your heart desires).
