Boiling condensed milk?

When boiling condensed milk to make toffee, can you use the tins with the tear top lids, or will they explode!Thank you

Why not buy the cans of ready-made caramel milk! It isn't that much more expensive.

why not just make the caramel with butter and brown sugar and condensed milk,.much nicer.

ok epic fail! LOL. The boiling was fine and I left it simmering for 3 hours, but it wasnt caramel!Maybe I didnt have the water hot enough!
Anyway, I ended up using the condensed milk with brown sugar and butter, just waiting for it to set - fingers crossed:/
