Crockpot Caramel Sauce

Best Ever Crockpot Caramel Sauce (aka Dulce De Leche) with just 2 ingredients most likely in your pantry and no stirring! This no-fail recipe results in the most magnificent, heavenly creation that you have ever made in your slow cooker. Guaranteed to be a favorite for a long time to come!




It is a divine creation that is utterly rich and creamy. It has a fabulously complex flavor with less overwhelming sweetness than caramel.
It's perfect on everything, but my favorite is on a spoon.

The Best Ever Dulce De Leche with just 2 ingredients and no stirring! It is a heavenly creation that will knock your socks off! Everyone is going to want it. Better buy more slow cookers. LOL

I have quite a dulce de leche obsession. I used to be hooked on caramel but it is almost too sweet. I mean it is cooked sugar with a little cream added, right? That is when I was introduced to dulce de leche. It is a divine creation that is utterly rich and creamy.

I can eat it by the spoonful! Dulce de leche is sweet milk slowly cooked until is it becomes dark, rich and thick. The traditional stove top method requires several hours of cooking and stirring often.

As much as I love my dulce de leche I just don't have the time or the patience to stand in front of my stove for hours. That is where the slow cooker comes in perfectly handy!

You really just pour the ingredients into canning jars, stir them together and cook. 8-10 hours later you have your thick, rich and creamy heavenly goodness. I have my spoon ready to dive in. It keeps for several weeks in the fridge, if it will last that long.

I gently warm my dulce de leche in the microwave, 30 seconds then stir. Until is it the thickness I am looking for. Perfect on cakes, great as a cupcake filling, dessert drizzle. I have stirred it into my brownies or cookies. It is perfect drizzled on cakes, ice cream and in coffee!

Can you imagine your morning coffee with a drizzle or scoop (no judgement here) of dulce de leche {{swoon}}. The thought makes me week in the knees. OK, enough chatting lets hurry and get to the recipe.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Best Ever Crockpot Caramel Sauce

Best Ever Crockpot Caramel Sauce (aka Dulce De Leche) with just 2 ingredients most likely in your pantry and no stirring! This no-fail recipe results in the most magnificent, heavenly creation that you have ever made in your slow cooker. Guaranteed to be a favorite for a long time to come!

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

Instructions

  1. Pour half of the sweetened condensed milk into each jar, add 1/2 of the vanilla bean paste into each jar. Stir to combine. Wipe rim of jar clean and seal with lid and ring. 
  2. Place in slow cooker and cover jars with water. Add enough water so there is at least 1" of water over the jars. You can lay the jars on their side if you need to.  Set temperature to low. Cover slow cooker and cook for 8 to 10 hours. 
  3. Remove from slow cooker and place jars on a towel until cooled.
  4. Serve and enjoy! 

DONNA'S NOTES

  1. You can substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean for the vanilla bean paste. 
    I cooked these for 8 hours to get this color. If you would like it richer colored, cook it longer. Note that at 10 hours it is as thick as custard. 
  2. Recipe can be doubled and tripled to suit the size of your slow cooker. I usually cook 4 jars at a time. 
    If your slow cooker is shallow you can use wide mouth half pint jars.

  1. This sounds wonderful. How long will this keep outside of the refrigerator after you "process" in the crockpot? I am assuming that the recipe as stated makes two, 8 ounce jars. Thanks so much for posting. Think I will try this for Christmas gifts as well.
