  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk


  • Open the can of sweetened condensed milk and pour into a 16 oz glass canning jar. Cover the jar tightly with foil.
  • Place a trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot (the trivet that came with the Instant Pot is perfect here). Place the filled, foil-covered jar on the rack. Pour enough water into the Instant Pot so that the water reaches halfway up the side of the jar.
  • Lock the lid in place. Close the pressure release valve and press the “Pressure Cook” button until it’s on “Normal”. Press the “Pressure Level” button until its on “High”. Then press the +/- buttons until the display says 00:35 for 35 minutes.
  • When the Instant Pot is done, press “Cancel” to turn off the Instant Pot. Then just leave it sit for 15 minutes to naturally release the pressure. Quick release the remaining pressure by opening the pressure release valve, steering clear of the steam.
  • Using an oven mitt or tongs, carefully remove the jar from the Instant Pot. Let it cool for 10 minutes, then carefully open the jar using an oven mitt. Stir thoroughly.
  • Store leftover dulce de leche in the refrigerator.
