Just slowly cook it until it reduces and caramelizes.

I have a recipe for Caramel Dip. You may need to thicken it if you used it as a filling, though. Here is the recipe:

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 carton whipped cream

Completely submerge can of condensed milk in boiling water and boil for one hour. Cool, open and combine with the whipped cream.

you can use a double boiler and just keep stirring until it caramelizes.

You submerge the can in a saucepan of boiling water and boil it for about 2 hours. Be very careful not to let it boil dry because the can will explode. Use a big pan and do a few tins at a time. Keeps forever unopened. Don't open the tin until it has cooled.

YOu just need to poke a hole in the top of the can so it doesn't explode, and then put it in a water bath and cook it for 2 or 3 hrs. then let it cool, open it and stir it (the bottom will be darker than the top, that's why you need to stir it).

Dulce De Leche Filling

A popular dessert in Latin American countries, dulce de leche, which is essentially carmelized sugar in milk, has quickly found a following in cake decorating circles. This recipe is an easy way to turn dulce de leche into a fabulous filling.

Preparation time: 1 to 11â4 hours

Yield: 3 cups
2 14-ounce cans sweetened condensed milk

1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2 Pour the milk into an 8-x-8-x-2-inch clear glass baking dish that fits into a larger, deeper cake pan. Cover the glass dish with aluminum foil.
3 Place the large cake pan on the oven rack, and set the glass dish inside it. Fill the larger pan with boiling water until the water reaches two-thirds of the way up the sides of the glass dish.
4 Bake for 1 to 11â4 hours, or until the milk turns a caramel color.
5 Use a rubber spatula to scrape the filling into a large bowl. Beat the filling on medium speed until it reaches a spreadable, smooth consistency (about 1 minute).

Just slow cook, stirring constantly until it caramelizes and you get the right consistence.
If you keep stirring, no need of double boiling.
