This makes some amazing dulce de leche that's rich and has an intense caramel-flavor. I followed their recipe and it failed. Below are the changes I made and it was AMAZING! The resulting product is VERY soft. Next time I'll add chopped pecans then chill it. Once chilled I'll roll it in balls and dip them in chocolate coating to make candy. It would also be great on cupcakes (whipped first) or as cupcake filling (added after cooling). I used it as an ice cream topping on vanilla icecream with fresh strawberries and it was fabulous!
Yield: 10
  • 2 cups LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetend flaked coconut
  1. Spray a 3X5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray then line with waxed paper. Set aside.
  2. Warm the LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk in a 4qt pot over medium-low to medium heat (don't try to use a smaller pan or you'll have find the stirring sends the liquid over the sides of the pan. Heat the milk just until it's nearly boiling and then add the sugar.
  3. You'll need to stir every 3-5 minutes to keep it from burning for the next 35-45 minutes. Keep your mixture just at a soft rolling boil, not a full boil. The milk mixture will thicken and turn caramel in color (you'll start to see the bottom of the pan when you stir).
  4. Remove pot from heat and stir in coconut. Spoon dulce de leche into prepared pan.
  5. Chill 50-60 minutes or until firm enough to cut into soft squares.
