Sometimes a recipe leaves you with a partial can of sweetened condensed milk. Tell us what you do with the leftovers. Share Your Answer

French Toast

I add the leftover condensed milk to french toast mixture, instead of regular milk.

I think the rest sounds fantastic, but I usually just cut up a banana and pour it over the banana slices. My friends brother does this and it is great! It is slightly sweet, but VERY easy.

6 minute caramel recipe

1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil, turn down heat to med-low, stir every minute or two to prevent scorching, pour into buttered small pan (8x8 or smaller), cool, cut into pieces, & twist in small pieces of wax paper - so easy!

cinnamon/sugar butter

I make cinnamon/sugar butter with leftover sweetened condensed milk. Its so simple! Use room temperature butter or margarine, cinnamon & sugar mix & sweetened condensed milk. Add the milk 1 tbsp at a time & taste as you go. You can make it as sweet as you like. Put in the fridge to harden after mixing or spoon into a mold for serving. Goes great w/ homemade rolls or bread. My kids like it on toast for breakfast .

Lemon Cream

I add lemon juice to it, little by little, and whip it (you can just use a spoon) till it thickens. I refrigerate the cream in a container with a lid and use it as ice cream topping, or add a dollop to a bowl of fruit, for example.

use it for crafts

I use leftover sweetened condensed milk to create paint for kids crafts. A couple drops of food coloring gives it a deep pastel color and it dries with a nice shimmer. Perfect for kids to paint with at Easter, but not recommended in areas where there are ant problems.

Use leftover condensed milk in fudge

Measure the amount of leftover sweetened condensed milk in ounces and add the same amount (or slightly more) of chocolate chips. Melt together, then stir in some nuts, a bit of vanilla and chill in the fridge. Makes very sweet candy.
