How to use up leftover dulce de leche

  • Dulce de leche muffins
    Put 2-3 tbsp dulce de leche into a plastic freezer bag, then snip off one corner. Half-fill muffin or fairy cake cases with muffin batter (find a basic muffin recipe at deliciousmagazine.co.uk), then pipe small blobs of dulce de leche into the centre. Top with the remaining batter, then bake.
  • Iced coffee
    Brew 500ml black coffee, leave the cool, then chill. Meanwhile, heat 200ml whole milk in a pan until just simmering, then add 1 1/2 tbsp dulce de leche and stir until dissolved. Cool, then chill. Stir the cold milk mixture into the coffee, then pour into 2 glasses filled with ice.
  • Salted caramel filling
    Beat 150g slightly salted butter (at room temperature) with 200g icing sugar until fluffy. Add 3 tbsp dulce de leche and a pinch of salt, then beat until smooth. Use to decorate a 20cm cake or batch of 12 cupcakes.
