    Brownies, fudge, caramel, pies, custards.... Mostly desserts. I always have a can or two on hand just in case.

    you can use it in tea also as a substitute for sug. and milk. I always have a few on hand also for squares and many in my preps. when I was growing up mom had cases of it. I guess leftover from WW2. it was a staple then. I had several cases given to me when my first husband was alive when lifeboat stores were being changed. makes lovely squares. ~Georgia

    squares: cookies layered in one pan. cut in squares as opposed to drop cookies. I think you likely lump it all into one and call them sweets. lot of folks around here do. not where I came from! ~Georgia

    I have found a recipe online for Vietnamese yogurt that uses it, I still have not tried it, but it sounds like it would be a nice sweet yogurt. The can is on my counter right now just waiting to be used!

    I just like to eat what's in the bottom of a can with a spoon.

    I use Sweetened Condensed Milk for my no bake cheesecake and my pumpkin pie. Usually recipes calling for this require no added sugar.
