Here's a simple recipe for making Dominican Dulce de Leche:


  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


Preparation: Remove the label from the can of sweetened condensed milk. Ensure there are no dents or damage to the can.

Boiling Method: Place the unopened can of sweetened condensed milk in a large pot. Fill the pot with enough water to fully submerge the can, ensuring there's at least an inch of water covering the can.

Boiling Process: Bring the water to a gentle boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let the can simmer in the water. Allow it to simmer for 2 to 3 hours, making sure to check occasionally that the water level stays above the can.

Cooling: After 2 to 3 hours of simmering, carefully remove the can from the pot using tongs or a kitchen towel. Place it on a heat-resistant surface to cool completely. Allow the can to cool for at least 1 hour before opening.

Opening the Can: Once the can has cooled completely, carefully open it with a can opener. Be cautious as there may be residual pressure built up inside.

Final Touch (Optional): Stir in vanilla extract for added flavor if desired.

Serve or Store: Transfer the Dulce de Leche to a clean jar or container for storage. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Now you have homemade Dominican Dulce de Leche ready to enjoy! Drizzle it over desserts, spread it on toast, or use it as a topping for ice cream or pancakes. Enjoy the rich, caramel-like flavor of this delightful milk-based treat.
