Dulce de Leche and Secret Recipe Club

Today my husband and I have been married 7 years. Yay for us! Ha. But in celebration of this I decided to take on something that I found intimidating, later realizing its not. Dulce de Leche.

For the Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned Easily Good Eats. Its a blog of a professional that loves to cook, and mainly cooks things with few and simple ingredients. There were several things I wanted to make but found a recipe for dulce de leche and was ready to take it on.

Its very simple. It takes a while but it basically just sits on the stove for 3 hours and you have yourself some sweet, rich, creamy 'candy milk'. 

Go over to Easily Good Eats and find something delicious!

Dulce de Leche
Recipe Source:

4 1/4 cups Whole Milk
1 1/2 Tablespoons Molasses
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1. In a large pot combine the milk, sugar, and molasses and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the baking soda and stir. Reduce to medium low and keep it at a bare simmer.

2. Stir occasionally, but don't mix in the foam that is on the top. Continue to cook for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Strain through a fine mesh strainer.Let cool and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


  1. I would love a jarful of that. I could use it for so many different things.

  2. This looks delicious- great SRC pick!

  3. Happy Anniversary! I did not know you could make dulce de leche with molasses. I have some to use up after making gingerbread muffins, so I will have to try this.

  4. Happy anniversary! I've never seen this recipe starting from all fresh ingredients (always starting with sweetened condensed milk) - this version looks awesome and I bet WAY more delicious!

  5. I love Dulce de Leche and we can use it in so many recipes. Great photos and fantastic choice for SRC!!

  6. This is something I always wanted to try!

  7. I had no idea it was so easy to make this, Meghan! What a great recipe to make at home and have in the fridge! So glad to have found your fun blog - so many great recipe ideas!

  8. Yum! Can I dip my spoon into that jar please! You were my secret partner this month and I had an absolute ball wandering around your beautiful blog. Such a gorgeous place! :)

  9. I love dulce de leche and this sounds so easy to make!
