I have! It’s the most amazing mouth watering desert I’ve ever tasted!! The caramel sauce is just unbelievable, simply define! It’s a must try… however I I make it in the can, don’t open it, just set it in the crockpot to cook in water, let cool then open the can… Yummy!!

What “mixture” are they talking about stirring in step 2? (Looks like it’s just the condensed milk so far?) Seems like an ingredient might be missing…???

As promised I am reporting on the Crock Pot Caramel Pie! I just gave a piece to hubby, and he said it tasted like a soft caramel. It is delish, and rich. Also my 1 quart pot does not have high or low, so I found it was done in 4 hours. I did stir it every 30 minutes, and found that works the best, especially since my pot does not have the low setting. But it is very YUMMY!

Made this pie today, everyone that had it, at our gathering loved it my son compared it to a twix candybar.

I haven’t made this pie, but I always make my caramel sauce with nothing but cans of sweetened condensed milk. I actually put the unopened cans down in a large pan of boiling water and boil them for 2-3 hours, adding water as needed. It is THE BEST and easiest caramel sauce I’ve ever had. And it’s all natural, nothing but milk and sugar. No hydrogenated oils like you get in some caramel sauces.

Can this recipe be safely doubled to make 2 pies? I wouldn’t mind having one to leave at home and one to take to a party! If so, should the crocking time be adjusted?

Can this be adapted for a larger crock pot??

Save yourself some time with the whisking- overnight you can put the CANS in water in your crockpot (covered completely) on low for 6 hours and in the morning, you’ll have two warm cans of caramel. I just did it last night. AMAZING. I love caramel and just discovered this after hating all the chemicals in store bought dipping caramel.

Can this be done as written in a 2 quart cooker? I’m considering this for my school’s “Pie Day” in November.

I was wondering if you can make this pie and then freeze it for a later date? With the holidays coming up it would make it convenient. Have you tried freezing one?

Just up the alley for someone who “LOVES” caramel. I plan to just drizzle chocolate syrup on the whipped topping.

I finally got around to making this tonight. I didn’t take a picture because I’m not very good at spreading the whipped topping and it looked…messy. But it was AWESOME!!!! My husband was thrilled! He thinks I’m some sort of dessert genius now. I used 4 Honeycrisp apples (peeled, cored, and chopped). Cooked them until soft with butter, rum, cinnamon, a touch of brown sugar, and a little water. I used the “cook in the can” method to caramelize the milk. Poured one can into the crust, layered with the apples, poured the other can on top, chilled for 2… Read more »

I am going to use crushed pretzel for crust. Did this with a pumpkin cheesecake and turned out great.

You can also cover your base with thin slices of bananna and make it a banoffe pie. Add some on top with the whipped cream too. I make ny own whipoed cream with some sugar and heavy cream and an electric beater. I find it makes it stiffer in comparison to cool whip. It’s nice to shave some chocolate over the top when you’re done too. Mmm. And for those who ask, it’s just like caramel butterscotchy jellolike toffee. Ahm nam nam.

It is an awesome recipe! The only modification that I make to it is to put the can (unopened) in the crock pot. Put a towel/washcloth underneath it and cover the can with water. Then cook on low for 8 hours. It makes clean up a breeze!

Now, wonder if you could use the carmel from the pie and make a strawberry pretzel salad, and instead of the strawberries add the carmel on top so you have the sweet and the salty??

I made this last week via the “sweetened condensed milk cans in slow cooker” method. I put 4 cans in on low setting and let “stew” for about 10 hours (mainly because I thought about it in the evening and wanted it ready for the next morning Used 2 cans for each pie. The hardest part is not making a mess — really it’s a fairly idiot-proof recipe ( thank goodness). Made one with pecans and crumbled Heath bar and the other with pecans and crumbled Butterfinger. My only beef is that it was very runny. I ended up putting… Read more »

I am cooking this right now…its only been in for about 2 hours on low and it kinda smells like it is burning..is that normal or is that just from it on the sides of the crockpot?

I have mine resting in the fridge right now. I am also concerned it is going to be runny it was pretty runny putting it in. I hope I didn’t ruin it I wanted to add marshmellow to it so I put some marshmellow creame with the caramel befor putting onto the crust. I guess we will see soon enough if it thickens up. Thanks for posting this it looks delish and I’m crossing my figures it turns out for me.

Wanted to add to my post.

I did layer it, one can of caramel, a thin layer of cooked apples, then the second can of caramel.

Coming out of the freezer this afternoon it’s soft set but soon out of the freezer it’s just as runny.

It’s still very yummy but what can I do to make sure it sets up right next time?

My parents live on an island in the city Boca Grande. A restaurant on the island makes Boca Banana pie. They make the caramel sauce using the unopened can method. Spread sliced bananas in the bottom of a graham cracker crust. Add pecans and pour the caramel sauce over all. Yummmm

I make this all the time. I peel the labels off the cans and place them in a large pot. Cover with water 1 inch above the tops of the cans and simmer for 3 hours. Slice bananas and layer them in a graham cracker crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours till set. Everyone loves this pie!

Hi. I am actually in the process of making this pie. The condensed milk has been in my small dip size crock pot for 3 hours now but it’s not really the color of peanut butter yet but I am having to stir it more frequently because it is trying to burn/solidify. Is this normal or is it ready to be poured into the pie crust?

I have a question. I cannot decide if I should make this pie in a graham cracker crust or a regular pie crust! What do you like better?
