might sound like I'm kidding, but I'm not . .

sweetened condensed milk cooked in a double boiler about 2.5 - 3 hours.

I was just going to suggest that.
It's addictively good.
It's not going to be as spreadable as your typical frosting, more like a ganache.

P.S. In case you don't know, he means cook it in the can.

I'd be kicked out of family gatherings if I didn't show up with a pie made from that. I don't do it in a double boiler though - in the can, in a big, deep pot - water has to cover the can at all times. Fabulous stuff. A local restaurant chain (similar to TGI Friday's - that type menu) sells the pie for about $4 a slice.

Two links to a couple recipes I use in case you don't have the time it takes to do the condensed milk.

Funny.
We're going to be doing a Brazilian themed fundraiser next month.
Looking for recipes I came across a Brazilian Caramel Tart.
Guess what is used for the filling?
No, really, go on, guess.
:D
