Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce
Caramel sauce is one of my favorite things! It’s perfect on pretty much any dessert and just has a totally decadent flavor.
This easy caramel sauce is actually simple to make… the key is making sure you get the mixture the right amber color before you add in the cream. Just keep an eye on it because if it cooks too long you can get a bit of a burnt flavor… which I personally still love! It will slightly bubble up when you add the cream so make sure you are using a large enough saucepan to allow some extra space.
Serve it on ice-cream, drizzle it over cake, stir it into hot milk or coffee… or eat it with a spoon, I won’t tell!
