Ingredients:  
4 cans condensed sweet milk
1 large pot
Lots of water

Directions:
Directions:
Remove the wrapper/labels of the cans (they should be made out of paper). In a large pot, put the 4 cans of condensed sweet milk and add water that goes about 3 inches above the cans, then boil for 3 hours. Make sure you turn them over once they have been boiling for 1 hours so it cooks evenly. The catch here is to never let the water go below the cans so you must check it often. Once it has boiled for 3 hours, make sure to let them cool down before you open them with a can opener.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Growing up this was a favorite Gomez dessert. spread on a piece of bread or tortilla, can be a topping for ice cream or just right from the spoon.
