    THANK YOU for this recipe! I LOVE that it’s microwave and took 2 minutes to put together!

    I’m making Hello Dollies and didn’t have the sweetened condensed milk, so I whipped some up ūüôā Too easy and WAY cheaper than buying in the store!

    And it tastes just like it and all thick, too…a GREAT alternative to the can.

    How easy is that?? I will have to try that. I don’t often have call to use sweetened condensed milk so I usually don’t have it when I need it. I will now! Thanks for the recipe!

    Thank you for this recipe, I bought some this Christmas because I was making fudge. This will make it much easier.

    Is that skim or whole milk you used?

  6. 1-8

    The nonfat dry milk powder is skim, Lisa. What I’ve read through some other sites, the non-instant milk is whole milk.

    Thanks. That’s what I was wondering. I actually have both at home right now, which is what I was hoping for.
