Instant Pot Caramel Sauce Recipe


  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla


Remove the label from the can of condensed milk.

Open the can and cover it tightly with foil.

Add 4 cups of water to the pressure cooker, and set the can of milk on the center of the wire trivet that comes with the pot.

Close lid and set to manual pressure for 40 minutes.

When the cycle is finished, do a quick release.

Take off the lid, wait a few minutes, then carefully remove the hot can from the water bath

Then remove foil and pour into a mixing bowl.

Add vanilla and stir.

Allow to cool. You will be tempted to taste. Don’t do it. It’s super-nova hot. Slice your apple instead. Dip and enjoy.

Before serving to guests, be sure to accent your table centerpiece with fall decor and battery lights.
