Hot Dulce de Leche ~ a decadently creamy and delicious hot caramel milk that gives cocoa a run for its money ~ once you try it there's no turning back! This toasty caramel milk will warm you to your core ~ but I'm almost embarrassed to tell you how easy it is to make this luscious hot dulce de leche.  Hold on to your hats, there are only 2 ingredients, and one of them is in a can. Put on your coziest flannel pj pants, grab a fluffy throw, turn on the TV (I suggest Poldark) and pour yourself a cup.  This is going to be good. In keeping with the decadent theme I suggest a dollop of MASON JAR WHIPPED CREAM to go on top. What is dulce de leche? Dulce de leche is a Latin American treat that's a lot like caramel.  It loosely translates to milk jam or milk candy, and I'd say that's pretty accurate.   Dulce de leche is created when sweetened milk is slowly heated and the sugars basically caramelize.  The resulting thick spread can be slathered on toast, biscuits, croissants, cornbread, you name it.  And you can bake with it, too.  Aaaaaaaand you
