Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Spray the crock of a slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (smaller one works best here).

  • Add the milk and cook on high for 30 minutes then stir and switch to low and cook for 2 hours or until mixture is light brown and caramelized, stirring every 30 minutes. Blend with a hand blender for a minute or two if you want the mixture to be smooth (I recommend this step).

  • Add the vanilla and cream and stir until blended.

  • Add chocolate chips and stir until melted.

  • Stir in pecans until well mixed.

  • Drop onto sheets of parchment paper (a cookie scoop works great for this).

  • Let sit until firm, about 4 hours or so.

Tips

You can use canned dulce de leche in place of cooking the milk, but this will make a much thicker mixture, and you'll need more than 1/2 cup of cream to get the proper texture for the clusters.
