1-Ingredient Crock Pot Caramel Recipe

Author Stefanie Fauquet


  • 2-4 cans sweetened condensed milk depending on size of crock pot
  • Optional: canning jars with lids and rings


  1. Place cans of unopened sweetened condensed milk into crock pot and fill with water, as full as possible, so the cans are completely submerged in the water. It’s very important that no part of the can should be out of the water during the cooking process. 

  2. Cook on low for 8 hours. You may need to refill water if necessary.
  3. Allow dulce de leche to cool on the counter until it reaches room temperature before opening.
  4. Optional if using canning jars: Divide the sweetened condensed milk from cans into small canning jars. Close with lids and rings. Follow the same steps.
