Modifications are necessary as stated in other reviews to create a perfect dulce de leche. I made a lighter and smaller version of this recipe. I used 4 cups of nonfat Lactaid milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, a little under 1 cup of sugar, and 1/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda. At first, I was skeptical like some of the reviewers that I would ever get dulce de leche out of this mixture and would just end up with hot milk. I figured that by using nonfat milk, I had altered the recipe too much. However, once I followed the suggestions of others and raised the heat higher than medium after adding the baking soda, the mixture began to turn into dulce de leche. In order for this recipe to work, you must use a higher heat during the last cooking phase and not medium like this recipe states. To avoid burning the mixture, you will need to stir it constantly. Nonfat milk and Lactaid milk (for those who are lactose intolerant) definitely works so if you are looking for a lighter option, you can absolutely make that substitution.
