    Nice rich chocolate taste. The dough is a little difficult to work with as it resembles a drop cookie dough, but it does firm up in the fridge. You'll probably have to pop it back in the fridge a few times during cutting. I couldn't find dulce de leche and didn't have time to make it so I subbed Nutella. Worked nicely, and I bet raspberry jam would be delicious too. I don't have aspic cutters, so mine were just sandwich cookies, but no one minded!

    I would not recommend the method of cooking the canned sweetened condensed milk. The cans are lined with an epoxy that contains BPA which toxic. More and more studies are coming out showing the really detrimental effect BPA has on the health. And, when you subject the cans to heat, you increase the amount of BPA that is released from the lining. It's not safe AT ALL.

    Judy1939, the reason I used the oven method is because the cans of sweetened condensed milk that we have in our grocery stores are the pull-tab variety, therefore, did not know of the boiling in the can process would be the same because the pull-tab cover is not completely sealed as a regular can. As to boiling canned preservatives, I have no qualms about that, I do it all the time.

    Judy1939 never say never - especially if you have never tried a true culinary method. It actually is a pretty safe method of cooking in the can. Simmering not boiling, not removing or opening the can before it is at room temp - all common sense. I am going to assume that sealing jars of preserves in boiling water also scares you, and if so then by all means put something under the can - even a tea towel so that the can is never in direct heat, just as you would in preserving glass jars..
