I've been using this recipe for years; I just wish I had kept track of how much money I've saved by not buying all those little cans!

I've made this a few times and it is a great substitute for the canned version...and much cheaper. I have found that you can get away with about 1 cup less powdered milk and still get perfect results. Read More

This is a great find. I have used this recipe for years. It has saved me a lot of money. I try to make the milk in the morning if I'll need it for dinner. That way it has time to chill and get thicker. I have also used it right away but the consistancy is a little loose. Read More

Good stuff, thanks! This made a little under 3 1/2 cups. It's a good way to use up that nonfat dry milk I bought for one recipe. Read More

A great recipe. Don't always have money in food budget for the canned variety but do keep dry milk on hand. With this recipe can always have sweetened condensed milk. Have used this recipe for years and always marvel at the ease and convience. Read More

This is exactly what I needed for the granola bar recipe here on AR. I replaced 1 cup white sugar with 1/2 cup honey. We are trying to reduce white sugar in our diet. It had the perfect consistency! Thank you! Read More

SO easy and MUCH less expensive than the canned version! next time I will use another reviewer's advice and only use 3 cups of milk powder as this was a tad too thick. Will use again and again! Read More
