What can I make with sweetened condensed milk that won't give us a heart attack?

I came into possession of two cans of sweetened condensed milk. I have only seen these used on the Food Network on Paula Deen's show, and I can't fathom eating desserts that are that sky-high in sugar and calories. Seems that all the recipes I find on google use this product in combination with tons of chocolate, nuts, and butter.

Are there any less sinful things I can make with it? Less sweet and/or less fattening?

Thanks in advance!

Put in your crockpot on low completely submerged in water for 8 hours. When you open it up you will have some amazing caramel dip to serve with apples or on ice cream.

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately my kids aren't fans of anything sweet and gooey... they're more into crispy/crunchy. Or savory..

You could do the caramel sauce and mix in granola, nuts and what not and make a granola bar treat with it.

Do you have an ice cream maker?

This sounds weird but it is oh so good

2 INGREDIENT ICE CREAM

INGREDIENTS:

1- 14oz can SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK..not evaporated milk

1 liter of SODA, the flavor is up to you

Ice Cream Maker

Ice(If you have an older machine)

Rock/Ice Cream Salt (If you have an older machine)


DIRRECTIONS:

Step 1: Add Sweetened Condensed Milk into machine container

Step 2: Add soda to machine container

Step 3: Add paddle to container

Step 4: Cover container and pace in machine

Step 5: Turn on machine and add ice and salt to the buck and process 40 to 60 minutes. When done it will be like soft serve. You can serve it now or put in the freezer for later. Please note that this ice cream will get a "sandy" texture the colder it gets, but fear not it is still good when it gets that texture.

Make coffee creamer.
1 can sc milk
1 can of reg milk
You can add cinnamon or vanilla or coco if you like
I do add an extra can of reg milk to mine and I think it is just as good.
