Dulce de leche

Dulce de leche (Spanish: [ˈdulse ðe ˈletʃe]; Portuguese: doce de leite IPA: [ˈdosi dʒi ˈlejtʃi]) is a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavour from the Maillard reaction, also changing color, with an appearance and flavour similar to caramel. Literally translated, it means "jam [made] of milk" or "sweet [made] of milk." It is very popular in many Latin American countries.

A sweet treat, similar to caramel, which can be made by boiling cans of sweetened condensed milk for a few hours in order for it to caramelize. It's literal, and fairly accurate, translation is "sweet of milk."
