So I’ve been hearing that dulce de leche is supposed to be super amazing and rich and yummy – but when I googled how to make it I kept seeing all these recipes that tell you to basically bake a can of condensed milk (too scary! what if it explodes??). Buuut I saw a jar at the grocery store so I bought it. It’s so good! I’ve been eating it out of the jar but I have to stop! Now what do I do with it? Anyone?
I thought of making cupcakes and using it as a filling maybe?

I agree with the scariness of baking a can. I made it before by putting condensed milk in a pyrex and baking it in a water bath.
As far as how to eat it, just use it the way you would eat caramel or nutella. You can also spread it on croissants (that’s how I ate it when I was in argentina), put it on ice cream, make it into a dessert (if you like to bake, try making alfajores). The cupcake idea is awesome! Enjoy!

Its best in cakes and not out of can. That’s how you really eat it, but what ever you like. Cupcakes should be great because you have to be careful and know how to bake with it its a bit tricky just like making a flan, which is a bit complicated if not done right

Boston I am so trying it on a crossiant! That sounds amazing! There’s a small bakery near me that has the best fresh buttery crossiants…I think I will just have it for dinner!
Chipmunk I thought I’d bake the cupcake and then, once it cools, scoop out a bit of cake, add the dulce de leche and then stick the top back on?

I believe you are taking the “bake a can of condense leche” literary. What you can do is purchase “La Lechera” which is the same as what you are eating . You will find “La Lechera or ducle de leche in any Latino supermarket.
My Fiance likes his pancakes and french toast covered in “La lechera” comes in a squeeze size bottle they have improved since I remember they only had them in tin cans that you had to pry open how they come in form of the squeeze Bottles
