This Easy Caramel Sauce is better than any I’ve found in stores, and it’s truly very easy. It’s not technically “real” caramel sauce since you don’t have to caramelize the sugar, but that’s what makes it easy, and you’ll never get a complaint, even from serious caramel fanatics.
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cream
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients except vanilla. Stir over medium heat until it comes to a boil.
Boil for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add vanilla. Serve warm over ice cream.
This keeps well in the refrigerator for weeks…that is, if there is any left from people grabbing a spoonful here and there!
The Story: A good friend of mine is a caramel fanatic, and I keep trying to find a bought caramel sauce that is as good as this one, but I haven’t found one yet. She eats it by the spoonful straight out of the refrigerator “because you don’t lose any from dripping that way.”
