Caramel Sauce... I searched for a "foolproof" caramel sauce. I finally came upon a good one that makes sense to me! This involves you covering the pan so that there will be condensation which in turn "brushes the sugar crystals on the sides of the pan" Really, all it does is to mimic the process that I didn't want to deal, I think this will do for me! For this recipe, I halved the ingredients and forgot to heat the cream and it still came out. So, in my book this is a great recipe. Happy to share it with you!

"I've never made a caramel sauce before and this was incredibly easy and delicious! I've been using it in my iced coffee and it's just like Starbucks. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. "

Are you making this? 
1.5 cup Granulated sugar
0.5 cup Water
3 tablespoons Butter
1 cup heavy (whipping) cream; heated
0.5 teaspoon vanilla extract; or 2 TBS Irish cream or your own f

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Place the sugar and water in a medium, heavy saucepan.Bring to a simmer over medium heat, swirling occasionally I just swirl the pot and do not use any

spautla or wooden spoon. Cover the pan, raise heat to medium-high, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the liquid gives off large, thick bubbles.You will notice some condensation. Remove the cover and cook, swirling the syrup, until it turns golden brown.Be careful so as not to over brown or burn. Keep an eye on it shouldn't take too long. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the butter with a wooden spoon. Add the cream, stirring constantly, then add the vanilla or any flavoring you want.I used Irish cream to make it my own! Return the pan to low heat and stir constantly until any lumps have melted and the syrup is smooth.Serve warm over ice cream or cake, or pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week. ~adapted from CDKITCHEN.COM~

I agree with dojo1 it was a nice sauce till I added re cream then it was too liquidy. It's an easy recipe maybe next time I won't add any cream. Hopefully if I let it sit for awhile it will thicken

so the recipe did not say white or Brown sugar. I tried to make it with white sugar and it never started to Brown. So my girlfriebd and I tried it with Brown sugar and it came out too liquidy but the flavor was still good. We dipped apples into it.
