dulce de leche

dulce de leche means "sweet milk" and it's a very popular spread in south america. it's becoming a lot more popular in north america with häagen-dazs making a dulce de leche ice cream flavour. in uruguay the most popular brand of dulce de leche is conaprole. you can find it in specialized stores in vancouver. i recently found it at an iga! and i've also found it in a latino store in montreal.

you can make homemade dulce de leche. all you need to do is boil a can of sweetened condensed milk in water for 2 hours. you have to be careful for it not to explode. it's happened once to my mom and it's not fun to clean up.

in uruguay, almost every type of desert is available with a dulce de leche flavour. cookies, cakes, candies, pop sicles, everything! yummy!
