"The dulce de leche milkshake at The Paramount Coffee Project is to die for. It would be great to know how it's made so I could try it at home."

Note At The Paramount Coffee Project the chefs make their own dulce de leche from condensed milk. Dulce de leche is a Spanish and Latin American caramel made with milk. It's available from Latin American and Spanish shops. To make your own, stir condensed milk continuously in a saucepan over low heat until dark caramel in colour (35-45 minutes)
