Oh what fun it is to cook!

I'm linking up with The Duchess of Fork today & can't wait to go back and check out some new recipes! Have you ever had the caramel pie at O'Charleys? It is good. Really good. I tried a recipe for this pie last Christmas and it was a big hit with the husband & the rest of our family. The kicker? It was the easiest thing I have ever made. Almost laughable it was so easy.

Totally stole from the interwebs of Google images...BUT, my finished product looks very similar.
The Easiest Caramel Pie Ever
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 graham cracker crust (chocolate or regular)
1 container of cool whip
Toppings if you want: chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, pecans, chocolate chips

Take the label off of the sweetened condensed milk can. Place the can in a large pot and fill the pot with water. Bring the water to a boil & continue boiling for 3 hours. Keep an eye on the pot to make sure the water is always covering the can. When the 3 hours is up, take the can out, and carefully open.  This is what it should look like:

 Amazing, right?! Take your caramel and spread it in the pie crust. Cover with cool whip & any other toppings you want. I just do a caramel drizzle on mine. I made 3 of these pies last year during the holidays...I think that says it all!

Happy cooking!
