In this recipe we prepare our own dulce de leche. If you would like to avoid this preparation, you can find ready-made dulce de leche in big supermarkets!
- Simmer the condensed milk for 3 ½ hours. Place the whole can, unopened into a pot with water or in a pressure cooker for 1 hour. The water should be bubbling gently, not boiling vigorously. Make sure the cans are continuously immersed in water while simmering. Add more water if necessary.
- When ready, allow to cool before opening the can (it can be stored for 1-2 months without refrigerating as long as it is not opened).
- Pulse the graham crackers in the food processor until fine crumbs form.
- In a deep pan, add the butter over medium to low heat, until it melts.
- When ready, add the pulsed graham crackers. Mix with a spatula to combine.
- When the mixture looks like wet sand, remove from heat.
- Add the 50 g of chocolate and continue to stir until the chocolate melts and completely combined. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
- Clean the pan and put it back on low heat. Open the cans of condensed milk which has now acquired a caramel flavor and color. Pour into pan along with a pinch of salt. Mix with a spatula until the caramel melts.
- Add the 100 g of chocolate. Remove from heat and stir until the chocolate melts.
- Pour the caramel mixture into the graham cracker mixture. Mix with a spatula.
- Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for 5-6 hours, until chilled.
- When chilled, form little balls by taking spoonfuls of the mixture. When all of the mixture is done, refrigerate for 1 hour.
- When chilled, melt 300g of dark chocolate couverture (in the microwave or in a bain marie). Coat each little ball with chocolate.
- Transfer to a serving platter, lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
When molding the mixture into little balls, wear disposable gloves so that the chocolate doesn’t melt from the warmth of your hands.
