Manjar (Chilean Caramel Toast Topping)

Manjar (Chilean Caramel Toast Topping)

(18 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cups whole milk*
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
In a heavy sauce pan over high heat, stir the milk, sugar and vanilla together. As soon as it starts to boil, immediately reduce the heat to a simmer.

Cook for 1 hour - stirring often - until thickened and caramel in color.

Gently stir in the baking soda. Mixture should foam. Continue cooking - stirring occasionally for 15 more minutes or until texture is pudding-like.

Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cool.

* It's important to use whole milk or half-and-half. The mixture won't thicken properly with low-fat milk.

My name is Manjari and this dish is called Manjar!! LOL!! I was actually looking for a dish called Caramel Toast and stumbled across this, what a pleasant surprise! Interestingly, we make almost identical desserts in India, which involve cooking milk with sugar for a long time, only we use spices like cardamom instead of vanilla. And we don't add baking soda. The end result is used to make a wide variety of desserts, including Khoa. I'll give it 5 stars, though I have not tried it, but definitely will!
