Mock Caramel Sauce

This is a "short cut" I came across some years ago to make a sauce very similar to caramel sauce. I use it whenever I don't have those little caramel candies on hand to melt down (which is most of the time, with a Diabetic in the house!)

Mock Caramel Sauce

2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk

Empty the cans into a glass baking dish, distribute evenly. Cover the dish tightly with tin foil.

Put this dish fully inside another baking dish, being careful that none of the sides touch the 2nd dish. Carefully fill the 2nd dish with enough water to come half way up the 1st dish's side.

Put into a 300 degree F. oven and bake for one and one half hours. Check occasionally to see if the water level has dropped, replenishing as necessary.

The end result should be a thick, creamy sauce tasting very similar to caramel sauce!
