Dessert Recipes using sweetened condensed milk

Sweetened Condensed MilkSo I feel so stupid for not having known for so long, that making your own sweetened condensed milk is super easy, & delicious. I hate how expensive one store-bought can, can be sometimes & I don’t usually have it on hand. But, thanks to food storage, I usually have powdered milk on hand. This recipe is so EASY, seriously. You will never buy another can of this stuff ever again.

Before you say, “Oh I found another method of doing this, ” forget about it. Do it this way for sure, because when I first learned you can make your own at home, the recipe I tried had you whisk it in a pot over the stove, & it was always super lumpy & I was miserable trying to make it work. I am so glad I found out about the blender method!

After you have whipped up your super easy sweetened condensed milk, try making some Caramel Pretzel Magic Bars or Lime Pie. Happy Baking!
