Just thought I would share this recipe because I thought it was so neat that you could make your own and not spend tons of $$$ on it in the store. I definitely do not use this much but sometimes I run across a recipe that calls for it and Pat LOVES caramel type topping on ice cream or anything. Do be sure to prepare it way ahead of time because it takes quite a while to cook.
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
Pour the milk into a double boiler (or a stainless bowl over a sauce pan). Cook over low heat for 3-6 hours stirring occasionally until it turns a deep amber color. Remove from heat cool and refrigerate. It will thicken a lot once it's in the fridge and will store for 2-3 weeks.
Head over to the Grocery Cart Challenge for a yummy freezer bag ice cream recipe that this topping would go great with!
PS - I am using this for a Chocolate Eruption Cheesecake that Pat, Auntie Sarah and Uncle Zack want for their B-day, I will let you know how it turns out!
