Rainy Day Coconut Dulce

All you need for this recipe is a can of coconut milk, brown sugar, and some rain to keep you indoors for an hour or so ... strawberries optional. Or, try saltines with globs of dulce de leche for a delicious gooey-crunchy, salty-sweet dichotomy. A spoon to lick will also suffice nicely.

1 14oz can coconut milk
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
pinch of salt

Pour the coconut milk into a small saucepan and add the sugar and salt. Whisk to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer over low heat and continue simmering until the dulce reaches the consistency of sticky pudding. This could take anywhere from 30 min to 45 min, so keep an eye on it and stir occasionally.

Serve with strawberries, saltines, or spoons. Oooh, or ice cream! That would probably be good too. You can't really go wrong.
