Recipe: Sweetened Condensed Milk

This is not only a recipe and a money saver post but it is one of the main ingredients in our next Chocolate Tuesday recipe which will be posted Monday night for your chocolaty Tuesday enjoyment!

Sweetened condensed milk can get expensive so here is a foul proof way to make your own which means more money to double up on those yummy recipes that require this sweet and tasty milk! Now you REALLY can say "homemade". ;-)

Homemade Sweetened Condensed milk

1/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup dry milk powder
3 tablespoons butter

Heat water in the microwave until steaming hot.
Add remaining ingredients into a large bowl, add hot water and carefully whisk or blend until smooth.
Store in air tight container until you are ready to use.

HINT: Want to make it especially yummy? Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the milk for a light vanilla flavor!

This milk is great in recipes, tea and even coffee. Enjoy!
