Remember the Rice Krispie Treats from childhood? Chocolate Dulce de Leche Crispie Treats are on another level of sweet, chocolatey crunch. Listen to the Tart Words Podcast for this episode of Tart Bites and get the recipe in the show notes.
NOTE: To make your own dulce de leche, remove the label from a can (or several cans) of sweetened, condensed milk. In a large pot, place the cans on their sides and cover with water – at least an inch of water over the highest point of the can. Bring the water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 2-3 hours, depending on how many cans are in the pot. Cans must be submerged at all times – do not let the pan go dry!
Remove cans from water and set on a cooling rack. I place a towel on the counter under the rack to absorb hot water dripping off the cans. Let cool completely. Once opened, place in a glass or plastic container. Enjoy!
