I love the idea to do this in the crock pot! I’ve done it on the stove before, but I’ll have to try this. Thank you!!

This is a great idea! I have made dulce de leche before on the stove top, but you need to keep an eye on the water to make sure it doesn’t get down too low and then you need to watch the stove for hours. Doing it in the crock pot is great because the lid keeps the water in. Mine cooked perfectly in 6 hours. Serving some with cookies and rice cakes at work for a birthday today.
