Easy Homemade Honest-To-Goodness

Mix sugar and dry milk together in a medium sized bowl. Add the boiling water a little at a time and stir well.

Add the melted butter into the mix slowly. Stir well until blended.

Pour the mix into a blender and blend until it’s a rich and smooth-creamy looking consistency. You can mix this by hand with a wire whisk or hand mixer.

Use this in all those yummy recipes – without taking a trip to the store. You can freeze your sweetened condensed milk for up to six months. Put it into tight sealing plastic or glass jars (leave enough room for expansion) or even in zipper seal bags. It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week. This makes 20 ounces–not the 14 the store brand comes in–for a lot less money.
