      I don't know about anyone else, but this does not save me any money since the sweetened condensed milk cost me 1.30 a can and I don't really buy flavored anymore. I can get it for that already made.

      Your best bet is to make your own Sweetened Condensed Milk, the prices in the store are absolutely ridiculous:

      I ran out of creamer so I made it, and I have got to say it wasn't bad. I used 2 percent milk instead of skim and it came out ok. I found that it wasn't as creamy textured as store bought, but I might try it with 1/2 and 1/2 next time.

      Recipes sound delicious! I will experiment with skim, 2%, and half and half, to see which has the best flavor. Living 45 miles from town, I can't just run to town when I run out!

      pastelsummer- Try melting your white chocolate chips with one or two tbls of the milk from the recipe, then add a little cool milk and stir to temper it, then put the mixture in the blender. The only issue I think it may have is it may be super sweet because of the sweet chips and condensed milk. You can tweak the amount of chips until you get it to taste the way you like. I can get the condensed milk for a dollar at our Dollar General, it's store brand but it works.

      maybe it's the sweetened condensed milk I used (great value brand) or maybe it's just the taste of the milk in general, but I really didn't like it.. I mixed up a batch and used the vanilla nut flavoring from the store.. Today is the second day I've tried it in my tea, and it has a really funny taste to it. Maybe it's because I drink tea which isn't as strong as coffee.. but it's not very creamy, and it had a very odd taste that I just can't get past.. Any ideas?

      Made a Mint Mocha Creamer, (used 2% instead of skim) and though it is a little strong in the mint department (I did use 2 teaspoons of Peppermint extract), I love that its not as sweet as the store bought creamer! Next time I will use less mint, but for now, I am so happy to not have to pay $5 for a weeks worth of creamer! Thank you so much for this recipe base!

      I think I will try this this weekend. I will use the recipe I have for homemade sweetened condensed milk using splenda and some extract. I want to try and freeze it in Tablespoon servings so that it can be used to cool and flavor hot coffee.

      So, I am out of creamer and thought, Oh, I'll just get the recipe from Budget101. Then, realized that I am also out of milk. LOL Not to be dismayed. I have powdered skim milk, so I'm going to try to whip up a batch of sweetened condensed milk and skim milk from the powder and see how it goes. I am actually hoping it decreases some of the sweetness a bit. Wish me Luck!

      I'm quoting my own post because I just realized that I have some evaporated milk and decided to take the easy way and use that instead. LOL I just haven't been myself since last week and have been taking it easy.
