Crock Pot Caramel Dip
This makes the best fruit dip, ice cream topping and even a great addition to coffee drinks. I will never buy it again!
- 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk

I started by emptying a can of sweetened condensed milk into the clean pint sized canning jar.
Once I emptied the entire can of sweetened condensed milk into the jar I placed the flat and rim on the jar and hand tightened it. I placed the jar in the middle of a 3 quart crock pot (on top of a folded dish towel-just for extra padding, so it wouldn't break) and filled it with water. It is important that the crock pot used is deep enough so that water can completely cover the jar even if just by a quarter inch. I then placed the lid on and turned to high.
After and hour and 15 minutes I heard the lid kinda moving. I went to check on the crock pot and the water was boiling.
I let it continue boiling for 3 hours. Since my lid was glass I kept checking on it just to make sure it wasn't going to break or anything. After 3 hours I removed it from the crock pot and it was a beautiful golden color.
It looked so good that we couldn't wait for it to cool down completely to try it. I sliced a banana, an apple and opened a box of chocolate wafer cookies for dipping. We were literally dipping the items then blowing them to cool them off so we wouldn't burn our mouths. LOL
