I hate it when a recipe calls for caramel sauce and I don't have any on hand. Therefore, I try (whenever I have time) to make a batch and keep it in the fridge for Ice cream, coffee or any recipe that requires this great sauce. Making caramel can be quite intimidating for many people, so I figured I want to share with you an easy way as my tip of the day.
Easy beezy Caramel Sauce
1 stick of butter (100g)
1 cup of brown sugar (you can use light or dark)
4 table spoons of milk or cream
½ tea spoon vanilla
In a small pan, melt butter over low heat so it won’t burn. As it begins to melt, add sugar and stir with a wooden spoon until butter is completely melted and sugar is dissolved. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Carefully add your milk or cream and stir. Add vanilla and remove off heat. Let it cool or use it hot on top of vanilla ice cream as a delicious Caramel Sunday.
