- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
For a cinnamon-scented milk caramel, add one cinnamon stick to the sweetened condensed milk and simmer as instructed. Remove and discard cinnamon stick before beating caramel with a wooden spoon.
Cook condensed milk in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes, until reduced by almost half, about 2 hours.
Remove from heat, and beat with a wooden spoon until cool.
