Halloween Caramel

This stuff is fun to give as a gift!  My Mom gave some to us for Christmas, 
but I thought it would be fun for Halloween too!

Ingredients :
1 4 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
Directions :
1. Remove the label from the can.
2. Immerse closed can on its side in a pot of boiling water.
3. Leave on a simmer or light boil for 2 hours topping off with water as needed. Be careful and don’t let the water dry out.
4. Remove from heat and let cool thoroughly before opening can. Condensed milk should be thick and a nice caramel color. Don’t open the can while its still hot, I hear that can be very, very messy.
5. Attach a homemade label with these directions on it:  Empty contents of can into bowl.  Add 1 tsp. vanilla and stir.
Great with apples and ice cream!  Note: contains milk and sugar

Here are some labels I made in photoshop if you want them!
(Just right click on the image and save it in your own picture file.)
