CrockPot Dulce de Leche Carmel Sauce Recipe

CrockPot Dulce de Leche Carmel Sauce Recipe

Our family tends to eat our weight in ice cream during the summer months. It just tastes 1,000 times better when the temperatures are soaring into the 90’s and 100’s.

Plain ice cream is fine, but sundaes are even better.

We found this super simple way to whip up a batch of your very own, made from scratch Dulce de Leche carmel sauce.

Really. Anyone can do this. It’s super cost effective, too!



2 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

3/4 tsp Vanilla (optional)


Transfer condensed milk to three 1/2 pint mason jars and put on lids and rings.

Place the mason jars into the slow cooker and cover with water.

Cook on low for about 8 hours.

Remove the mason jars from the water and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

Carefully remove rings and lids.

Add 1/4 tsp vanilla to each jar (optional).

Stir well until sauce is smooth.

To store, replace lid and ring and store in refrigerator.


See? I told you it was easy!
