Dulce de leche is very similar to caramel, but while equally delicious, they are not the same thing.

Once you learn to make homemade dulce de leche, you'll want to bake it into all kinds of delicious baked goods!  

Dulce de leche has a sweeter, more butterscotchy flavor.  

My preferred method for making homemade dulce de leche is simple - open the can, pour it into a pie pan and use a water bath to bake it.

It's super duper easy - no mixing or blending or standing over a hot stove.

There are plenty of amazing recipes in which you can use dulce de leche including Alfajores, Banana Muffins Swirled with Dulce de Leche, and Dulce de Leche Scones.

You can also drizzle it on ice cream, swirl some into brownie batter or banana bread or cheesecake, stir a teaspoonful into your coffee in place of milk or cream, or make frosting with it.
