I have seen online on how to make caramel in the crockpot with just a can of sweetened condensed milk. I tried it the other night and it worked. If you submerge 1 or 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk (with the labels removed) in a crockpot. Fill the crockpot with water and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Allow to cool in the crockpot for a couple of hours.
Thru Tuesday, Hornbachers has the milk on sale 2/$3 and it may be on sale at other stores for the holidays.
It can be used for ice cream topping, fruit dip and other uses. I made cupcakes yesterday with devils food cake mix. I mixed the cake mix as directed and put enough in each cup to cover the bottom, then put some caramel and Heath baking chips in each cup. I then covered each with more batter and more Heath chips.
