  • 1 can Sweetened condensed milk. 14 ounce


  • 6 cups Water


  • Open the can of a condensed milk and pour the content into 3 small clean and moisture free ramekins.
  • Cover the mouth of the ramekins tightly with the help of aluminum foil.
  • Pour 6 cups water into the steel pot of the Instant Pot. Place the metal trivet inside the pot.
  • Arrange the ramekins on the metal trivet. The water level will come to half way the ramekins.
  • Secure the lid of the Instant Pot and seal the valve. PRESSURE COOK on HIGH for 45 minutes.
  • When the pressure cooking cycle is over the Instant Pot will begin to beep. Wait for a complete Natural Pressure Release (NPR).
  • When the metal pin drops open the lid of the pot carefully. Wait until the ramekins cool down a bit.
  • Once the ramekins are warm to the touch carefully open the foil covers. There might be a little condensation water on the surface of the dulce de leche. It's quiet normal, just drain it and than whisk the dulce de leche with the help of a fork to form a silky smooth consistency. The consistency of un whisked dulce de leche is like yogurt.
  • Enjoy as a dessert or a spread, filling, topping etc.



  1. Measuring Units used, 1 cup = 240 ml & 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.
  2. 6 quarts Instant Pot will fit: 3 small ramekins, 3 condensed milk cans, 3 small mason jars.
  3. Water Quanity: The water level should reach half way the container.
  4. Can I cook condensed milk cans directly? Yes, you can but I would not recommend doing that as tin cans might leach harmful chemicals into the Dulce De Leche. You can pour the condensed milk into ramekins, mason jars or food grade stainless steel containers and cook them to make the dulce de leche. 
  5. Why my Dulce De Leche is chunky & not smooth? Dulce De Leche just out of the pot and un-whisked is chunky or rather has a consistency of yogurt. You need to whisk it with a fork or a hand whisk for a few minutes to make it silky smooth.
  6. How to know that Dulce De Leche is done? Dip a spoon and drag it, if a lasting sticky ribbon forms that means that the Dulce De Leche is cooked right or done.
  7. My Dulce De Leche has water on the top: A thin layer of water might collect on the surface of the cooked Dulce De Leche due to condensation. It's quiet normal. The color of the top layer might look pale. that's normal too. Drain the excess water and than whisj the dulce de leche with a fork to have an incredible gorgeous golden or brown dulce de leche that's wonderfully smooth and silky.
  8. STORING TIPS: Lasts for 2 weeks in the fridge. Lasts for 2 months when frozen.
  9. Dulce De Leche thickens as it cools down. Whisk it to bring back the luscious smooth silky consistency.
