Looking for a yummy and easy caramel sauce recipe? This one is easy and makes 1 pint of sauce to keep in the fridge. Top over ice cream or add to your favorite dessert recipes!
- 1/2 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- Melt butter in sauce pan, add water and sugars, salt and corn syrup, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
- Cook on med-high heat for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat, slowly stir in the cream and vanilla until it’s all one color, bring it back to the burner.
- Put on low heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool before enjoying, when you put this in the fridge it becomes a little thicker.
Notes worth mentioning:
- You have to watch this like a hawk. When you remove it the first time from the heat, you are looking for it to start getting a little darker and you must remove it at that point.
- If you take if off and it has reached the “thread” phase of making a candy, just pour the remaining liquids in and stir them out. It takes a minute but you can get it back to a liquidy state.
- If it separates in the fridge a bit, just stir it up.
