There is a running joke between me and my husband about what I look at on the computer in the evening. I usually spend an hour a night skimming through pinterest, he calls it "Missy Porn". Well on pinterest was where I spotted a picture of a can of caramel, and who doesn't love caramel?
The recipe, which wasn't really a recipe more of directions, and even they were not challenging, was to place a closed can of sweetened condensed milk into the crockpot and cover with water. Cook on low for 8 hours. Cool for am hour and open & serve.
Well I have to tell you I expected it to me a little smoother, silkier maybe. The consistency was thick and not pourable, so I heated a small amount in a glass bowl in the microwave figuring it would melt. Well I was wrong, it created a more undesirable consistency, kind of lumpy. Overall the flavor was good, but without that pourable consistency I don't know if I would make it again. Never say never though, it probably would make a great frosting or filling for a layer cake.
***UPDATE*** I have to tell you after is was chilled in the refrigerator I liked the consistency better, so I would make again to fill a cake with.
