You see, I love having dulce de leche on hand because it’s so incredibly good for dipping my apples in or drizzling on my ice cream. I’m all about the desserts & this one just sends me to the moon. But I often remember that I need some when it’s too late to make it because I use the slow cooker method. Don’t get me wrong, that Crock Pot caramel recipe is AWESOME & has been my go-to recipe for years. But sometimes I need it a little faster or all my slow cookers are in use (for a big ol’ dinner or something) and I need an alternative.
I have been bound determined to get more bang for my buck out of my pressure cooker & I think I finally created the recipe that will do just that. I make treats more than anything else & so what better thing to use it for- CARAMEL! Scroll on down & check out the recipe. It’s so easy!
