"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

nonfat dry milk powder
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.
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.
A great alternative to when shops are closed!

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.
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.
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!
This recipie is an indispensable, must have! I used it in a homemade icecream recipie and it turned out great. Thank you so much!
worked pretty good, but you have to watch carefully so it doesn't burn.
