Looks like you've got good suggestion on how to make caramel.

Also you can make a napoleon. Using store bought pastry dough. Depending on how big you want to make. Put some milk into a pot slowly bring the heat up. For a 2 cups of milk add about 1-2 table spoons butter. Mix well till all melted and incorporated together. Spread on the baked pastry dough, layered it up as high as you like. It is divine.
Now if you live in the area with a Russian store go and by cake waffles. If you ask they will know what you are talking about. Do the same thing, but leave the future cake in the refrigerator for a day. Then serve at room temperature, it is to die for.

One can sweetened condensed milk is 14 oz, so you would use 1 3/4 cups to equal one can. To make caramel I would use the stovetop method, but I would use medium/low heat, an stir constantly. It does make wonderful caramel sauce.

Skittle, while I agree that 14oz SHOULD equal about 1 3/4 cup of condensed milk, every single reference I can find says its only about 1 1/4 cup. Weird huh?

I'm going to measure the next can I buy too! I think that is a bit nuts. If they mean 10oz why is the sucker marked 14oz?

My grandmother used to open the can (top) and put the can in a simmering pot of water...the end result was carmel...similar to the carmelized "Mexican" milk dulce viche? I can close my eyes and (a) smell it "cooking down" and (b) taste that first spoonful warm on homemade "grandma" bread...
