Caramel dessert help?

rockandroller1 | Nov 17, 201106:26 AM

A friend of mine asked if I would ask my food peeps a question, so here you go:

My dad started going on about some dessert that his mother used to make, and I want to try to make it for him. He thinks that it is Eagle evaporated milk boiled in the can until it's caramel, then poured over (cake/graham cracker crumbs?) in an ice cube tray and topped with whipped cream and frozen. I think I can figure out the caramel part, but am not sure what the bottom layer is (and never tasted it myself, so I have no idea what is was). She was Russian, if it matters.

I posted this on General Chowhound and someone suggested it was likely sweetened/condensed milk and not evap, which I agree with, but haven't gotten many other tips. Anyone else have anything?
