DULCE DE LECHE





DULCE DE LECHE

Awesome recipe bound to delight.  I can eat this by the spoonful.  It’s great served poured over desserts, like a plain cheesecake or cake.  If using the extra butter, it will set up nicely in the fridge after you've poured it over the whole of the top of a chilled cheesecake.  Beyond delicious!!  This is actually simply a variation of my new condensed milk recipe.

1/cup boiling water (75 mL)
4 tbsp unsalted butter, PLUS (30 mL)
  2 tbsp regular butter (leave out if you want a sauce vs a topping for cheesecake) (30 mL)
1 cup whole, OR skim milk (250 mL)
  powder**  OR coconut milk powder (see below in Helpful Hints)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal  3/4 cup sugar (175 mL)
1/cup powdered erythritol (60 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
1 tsp molasses (5 mL)

In food processor, combine boiling water, unsalted and regular butter; process.  Add whole, OR skim milk powder, liquid sweetener, powdered erythritol, vanilla extract and molasses; process.

Helpful Hints: **Coconut milk powder is now available on Amazon and could possibly be used in this recipe.  Whole milk powder is usually available at Costco or PriceSmart in Central and South America and could possible be in the Mexican section of a grocery store. Also, try health food stores.
