    I saw on a TV show where they made a super, super simple version of this - you take a can of condensed milk, poke a hole in the top and sit it in a bowl of simmering water for ages and ages (I think it was like, an hour or something) and you end up with a caramel-like, thick, milky substance nom nom nom.
