Pinterest Experiment, Condensed Sweetened Milk

This is my second Pinterest experiment this week. I tried out dairy-free evaporated milk and it turned out great you can see my post here. I also tried my hand at making dairy-free sweetened condensed milk. The sweetened condensed milk is something I use once a year in a few of my candy recipes. I usually in the past would just make the candy with the regular milk but then my kids and husband couldn’t eat it. So I thought this year after finding the recipe for making regular sweetened condensed milk posted on Pinterest I would give making it dairy-free a try.

Sometimes using substitutes in candy recipes won’t work but I am happy to report this one worked very well. I think the firmness of the set of my Rocky Road Fudge was a little softer but it still holds its shape just fine and tastes very good.

Dairy Free Sweetened Condensed Milk

12 oz dairy-free evaporated milk (see my post on this it is really easy to make)
1 cup dairy free powdered milk ( I used Vance’s Dari-Free but I am sure you could use Better than Milk too)
4 cups of sugar
6 Tablespoons of dairy-free margarine (I used Nucoa sticks, Earth Balance I am sure would work too but be careful as the last I checked the Earth Balance sticks were not dairy free you may need to use the tub one)

This first step I think is really important so don’t skip it. Place the sugar in a blender or food processor and process until super fine. I did this in two batches in my blender and it worked out great.

Add the processed sugar to a heavy pan add the rest of the ingredients and cook on medium to medium-low just until the sugar dissolved. I just kept checking the back of the spoon and once I felt no more granules of sugar and the margarine was melted I took it off the stove. I divided it up into 3 canning jars about 1 1/4 to 1 1/3 a cup each and placed them in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day I used one of them in my Rocky Road Fudge recipe and it worked. So if you have a favorite recipe that calls for sweetened condensed milk give this one a try. I hope it works as well for you as it did for me.
