Don’t be intimidated about the idea of making your own sweetened condensed milk! I looked through a few recipes and tips and I’ve made this three times now and it comes out perfectly every time!
First, I’d like to point out that the ingredient list is crazy simple!
Just three ingredients for delicious sweetened condensed milk!
- Unsalted Butter
- Sweetener ( Here’s my recipe for the sweetener I use for everything!)
And for fudge all you add to the condensed milk is sugar-free chocolate chips!
For sweetener I use a blend of Stevia, Xylitol, and Erythritol But, you can use whatever sweetener you prefer!
Side note about sweetener: I haven’t said much about my sugar-free choices but I really love this combination of sweeteners,
they are natural and allow for no rise in your blood sugars!
My favorite Stevia is from Trim Healthy Mama, although you can also find many good choices of Stevia on Amazon or the grocery store. (Pyure is my favorite store brand these days)
and the others I order in bulk from Amazon! (click the linked names of each sweetener product for a direct link to the amazon product! ;))
The most helpful trick I have come across for making the sweetened condensed milk is using a large shallow pan. Like a large frying pan!
This makes the milk condense so much faster and gives you a beautiful thick and creamy product in about 20 minutes.
Start by putting 2 cups of cream, 2 TBSP of unsalted butter, and 1/3 a cup of sweetener ( may need to convert the amount of sweetener if you are using something different, my blend is some what of a super sweet blend. )
Stir until dissolved and bring to a boil on medium to high heat.
Once boiling, simmer, stirring occasionally until condensed by about half and thick and bubbly. Should be about 15-20 minutes.
This will make about a cup to a cup and a half! seriously LOOK at how creamy and thick this is?? (one note of caution…. no matter how badly you want to, Do Not lick the spoon and taste this right out of the hot pan.. you may or may not burn your tongue and regret it for the next two days! ?) But trust me, its soooo yummy!
Now to make fudge!!!
I love to make fudge right away while the milk is still hot. The chocolate chips melt right away and I can stick it in the freezer!
It’s a one to one ratio… so a cup of condensed milk and a cup of chocolate chips makes a full batch.
But if you are being weird and don’t want to eat the whole dish. (I guess it could happen?!) You could always make just half a cup and half a cup… or whatever you want!
You can also make it later by mixing the chocolate chips with the condensed milk and microwave in small increments, stirring in between each time until fully melted and blended together! Chill until hardened.
And then do your best to not stand at the counter ( or fridge) and eat the entire thing.. I’m not totally sure why that isn’t a good idea.. but we are supposed to resist the urge to do so.. I know, weird! I just might have done this ( ok I didn’t eat the WHOLE thing) with a tub of peanut butter and a spoon… and I’m not going to say it was a bad idea! 🙂
Also, My friend Tiffani and I are dreaming all kinds of deliciousness like coconut flakes and nuts for the next time. And there will definitely be a next time!
I hope you try this recipe out and I hope you enjoy every sugar-free bite!
