Sweetie Buddy Bear

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Have you ever tried condensed milk before? By itself it tastes like very sweet, thickened milk. It's used in many recipes like flan, tres leches cake, banoffee pie and can be cooked to make dulce de leche.

Condensed milk has a pretty long shelf life so if you can't use up the contents of an entire can in a recipe, transfer the remaining milk in a small bottle or plastic container (storing it in the can isn't safe).

May I suggest using an empty honey bear bottle?

Tada! Milk in a bottle!
Label the bottle, store in the refrigerator and
take him out once in while.

I would use it to make Vietnamese coffee.

I'd also use it to sweeten a tall glass of iced coffee.

And even drizzle it over a fresh fruit salad.

I wish you a sweet, sweet day!
