Step 1:

Ok, to start we'll need 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp of cocoa powder

Step 2:

you can skip this step if you have a way of removing the lid of the condensed milk, but it also makes it easier to stir so you might want to consider doing it anyway.
place the unopened can in about an inch of water and slowly bring it to a boil. Boil it for 3 minutes. This is just enough to thin it out a bit.

Step 3:

Be careful when you open the can, it may spit a little if you aren't careful. After opening, carefully pour into the cocoa powder and start stirring. Again, if you have heated the condensed milk, this is easier.

Step 4:

Keep stirring until all of the cocoa powder has been incorporated, then let it sit for half an hour or so and stir again. After the second stirring it is ready for use as is, but you may want to add more cocoa if you like it a little stronger or thicker.

Step 5:

I hope you enjoyed this instructable. I really enjoy this little sauce and I think you will too.

    I have always removed the whole top of the can and then scrape the thick messy stuff out. This is a great idea. Will definitely be trying the heating trick this holiday season.

    Good tip to warm up the sweetened condensed milk a little beforehand. Thanks!
