How To Make Homemade Caramel

Once you see how easy it is to make homemade caramel, I guarantee you will never buy it from a store again. This recipe is so simple, so quick, and so delicious, that there really is no need to look any further when it comes to making your own caramel. There’s no thermometer needed plus no need to stand over the stove all day. It’s 2 simple steps, that’s it!

Homemade Caramel
Simple, quick, and no fuss, this caramel recipe is perfect for caramel apples, fancy coffee drinks, or even an ice cream topper!


  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • water
  • foil

Line a crock pot with foil. This will prevent a rust ring from forming around the top of it. Remove the paper from the condensed milk can, and place in the bottom of the crock pot. Fill with enough water to completely cover the can about 1 inch. Turn to LOW and cook for 7 hours. Remove from water and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or over night. Open and enjoy!


That can seriously turns into that caramel? Yes it does!!

IMG_2706 I have no words for how amazing this caramel is.  I have all sorts of dreams of caramel milkshakes, caramel topped ice cream and most importantly homemade caramel frapps.


Which do you prefer, caramel or chocolate? I’d rather have a chocolate bar than a caramel square, but when it comes to an ice cream topper, I think caramel takes it!
