    Condensed milk 13th Sep 05 at 1:46 PM
    I have a can of condensed milk and a can of evaporated milk in my cupboard.

    I know these can both be used for loads of recipes but I can't find any!! I would really like to use up both cans and have ample supplies of most other stuff that might be needed.

    Any ideas please!!! And squeaks before you mention it I have checked the index threads... infact I am still checking....

    thank you...
    oooh look only about 220 posts and I got round to doing my Avatar already!!

    Hi Mrs_Pepperpot,

    There are loads of ideas for using it up on this older thread so I've added your thread to it to keep all the suggestions together.

    Yes am torn at the moment between your suggestion and freezing it!

    Am waiting to see if my bump feels like something sweet and sickly later on!

    I'd have to freeze it straight away, otherwise I might just dip a finger in it & before I know it, it'd all be gone

    my fav has to be fudge cake its very sickly though

    1 can on condensed milk
    150g butter
    150g light brown sugar (altough i used muscavdo sugar the other day and it still tasted good)
    a few drops of vanilla extract
    sweet shortcrust pastry (although i used normal shortcrust and found it less sickly)

    roll out pastry and place in dish, blind bake until golden,
    once cooked take out and leave to cool
    then plce sugar and butter ina pan and melt until sugar as dissolved add a few drops of vanilla extract
    once sugar has dissolved add the condensed milk and stir until completely mixed together and it starts to bubble
    stir it often otherwise it will burn the sugar making it taste bitter
    then pour mixture into the pastry case
    place in fridge till set
    then eat
    very yummy

    condensed milk is so nice

    add as much condensed milk in a mug, and add hot water , its so yummy. thats if theres any left once the kettles boiled.

    instead of butter/jam/peanut butter, put it on bread- it may sound yuck, but its really nice.

    What can i do with condensed milk?
    Hi everyone,

    I bought a tin of condencsed milk to make some chocolate fudge icing ( I actually needed evaporated milk and didn't realise they were different, but that's another story :rolleyes: ).

    I bought the smallest tin I could (397grams) but only needed about a quarter of it. the rest is in a tub in the fridge. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do with it?

    If possible, it would be great if the ideas were easy, quick things, as I am getting married on saturday , and don't have a lot of time for cooking at the moment! A few friends are coming for lunch on saturday inbetween ceremonies (its complicated - don't ask!) so if there were any ideas which would be suitable for a quick pudding that would be great. Or maybe soimething that could be made then frozen?

    Any help would be much appreciated - thank you.

    When I was a child my mother used to put it on top of tinned fruit. I quite like it in coffee.

    Half a tin of condensed milk....
    ......and a glut of cheap Weetabix..........

    I'm looking to use up half a tin of condensed milk....

    As well as the glut of weetabix and condensed milk, I also have


    huge bag of Value oats
    plain and self raising flour
    a bit of chocolate spread
    single cream
    golden syrup
    eggs
    sugar
    about 4 ounces of butter
    some bits and bobs of dried fruit.........


    any thoughts?? I am not feeling well (full of cold) and just wanted a 'chuck it together' kind of recipe if possible.

    Hi Burlesque Babe,

    Fifteens are my favourite thing to make with condensed milk:

    15 digestive biscuits (crushed)
    15 glace cherries (chopped)
    15 marshmallows (chopped)
    small tin of condensed milk
    dessicated coconut

    Mix the biscuits, cherries and marshmallow in a bowl with the condensed milk. Roll into a long sausage shape on greaseproof paper sprinkled with the coconut. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours and then slice.

    There's an earlier thread with lots of recipes that should help so I've added your post to it to keep the suggestions together.

    I'm sure you could substitute weetabix for those digestive biscuits ...

    If you have icing sugar and peppermint flavouring then peppermint creams are good for the condensed milk (add icing sugar, more than you think, until the consistency is thick, add peppermint flavouring to taste! Half dipped in melted chocolate is even better.) But that's quite a bit of handling.

    then you put the weetabix in weetabix brownies. Possibly another day.

    Or dilute the condensed milk and use in any recipe that needs milk and sugar, reducing the sugar a bit. Probably trial and error ...

    Crush the weetabix, then use syrup, sugar, flour butter to make Twinks hobnobs
    Don't know but you might be able to experiment by cutting down the amount of sugar and replacing the golden syrup with condensed milk

    Leftover condensed milk....
    I've made tablets and chocolate coconut balls, I now got half a tin (200g) of condensed milk left over. Any ideas what I can do with it?
